Chicken & Dumplings

Thank you, Passionate Homemaking, for the foundation of this recipe! We loved this soupy-style chicken and dumplings recipe. So wholesome and filling... Next time, I think I'll add a little more liquid and some corn.

2 c. carrots, chopped (about 4)
1/2 onion, chopped
2 potatoes, chopped
2 celery stocks, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
2 c. chicken broth
2-3 c. cubed cooked chicken
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt
1 1/2 tsp thyme
1 tsp basil
1 c. milk
2 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1 c. milk
5 Tbsp butter, melted
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Saute chopped vegetables in coconut oil and spices for approximately 5 minutes. Add water/broth and heat to a boil and then simmer for about 10 minutes. Add cooked chicken and milk in the last 5 minutes. Pour into a 13×9 baking dish. I top it off with a dash of each of the spices again (sage, thyme & garlic powder). Scoop dumplings by rounded tablespoon onto the top. Cook for about 18 minutes at 425 degrees.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, parsley, salt, and pepper. Stir in the milk and melted butter until combined.
