Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch Oven over a medium heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, to your taste.. Brown 4-6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; reserve the pot.
Add the celery, carrots, onions, potatoes, thyme and garlic to the drippings in the pot and cook , stirring until veggies begin to soften, 3-5 minutes. Add the chicken, bay leave and 6 cups of water. I added 2 Tbs. of Chicken Boullion to the water. Bring it to a simmer and cook until the job Clem is done about 10-15 minutes. Discard the bay leaf and transfer the chicken once again to a plate. Let cool. Shred the chicken with 2 forks and return back to the pot.
Whisk together 1/2 cup of the flour, 2 Cups of the liquid from the pot and 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk the flour mixture back into the pot and simmer until slightly thickened. 3-5 minutes.
Make the dumplings: Whisk together the remaining 2 Cups of flour, the baking powder, baking soda and 1/4 Tsp of salt and pepper and 1 Tbs. chicken boullion in a medium bowl. Whisk in the melted butter, buttermilk and parsley. Reduce heat to low and drop the dumplings into the broth with a Tablespoon. Simmer covered, until the dumplings are firm 8-10 minutes. Enjoy!
