Buy a whole chicken and ask the butcher behind the meat counter to cut it into 8 pieces, 10 pieces if the breasts are big enough. Make sure the butcher gives you the giblets (the heart and liver in the little bag) along with the back bone and freeze it for a soup to be used at another time.
I serve this with broccoli on the side
Makes 4-6 servings
Active Time: 30 minutes
Total Time 70 minutes

1 (3 pound) chicken cut into eight pieces, skin removed
1/3 cup flour
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 onions, peeled and cut into quarters
4 carrots peeled and cut into 2 inch chunks
2-3 stalks celery cut into chunks about 2 cups
1 bay leaf
4 cups chicken broth
For dumplings
2 cups all purpose flour - I always use King Arthur
1 tbsp baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
3 tbsp butter
1 cup milk
1 pound frozen broccoli cooked

Cooking Instructions

To prepare chicken:
1- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat the chicken pieces with the flour. I place the chicken pieces in a plastic bag, add the flour and simply shake.
2- In a, heavy pot (I like a Dutch oven), heat the olive oil and remove half the chicken from the bag and brown all over , about 2 minutes per side then remove and repeat with the remaining chicken pieces and set aside.
3- Add the onion and celery to the pot and cook about 2 minutes, add the carrots, bay leaf and broth and stir.
4- Return the chicken to the pot and push each piece into the pot so they are covered with broth as much as possible. Cover and place in preheated oven for 60 minutes.

To prepare Dumplings
1- In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Melt the butter in a small saucepan, remove from heat and stir in the milk. Add the milk to the flour and mix until just combined
2- Drop 4-6 heaping tablespoons into the pot. Cover and return to oven for 15 minutes more .

To Serve:
1- Scoop the chicken, vegetables and dumplings onto a pasta plate, wide flat bowl or a plate with a rim and serve with steamed broccoli on the side.
