Ingredients

  • 2

    teaspoons olive oil

  • 3

    celery stalks, chopped

  • 2

    carrots, chopped

  • 1

    onion, chopped

  • 1

    garlic clove, minced

  • 1/4

    teaspoon dried thyme

  • 4

    cups reduced-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 1/2

    cups chicken breast, skinless, cooked and chopped

  • 1/4

    pound green beans, trimmed and cut into 1/2-inch lengths

  • 1/4

    cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • 1

    cup all-purpose flour

  • 1/2

    teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/8

    teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1

    cup water

Directions

Heat a large saucepan over medium heat until hot. Swirl in the oil, then add the celery, carrots, onion, garlic, and thyme. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add the broth and chicken. Bring to a boil; reduce the heat, cover, and simmer 10 minutes. Add the green beans and simmer until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir in the parsley. Meanwhile, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir the water into the flour mixture just until moistened. Drop the dough, by rounded teaspoonfuls, onto the simmering stew, making 12 dumplings. Cover and simmer until the dumplings have doubled in size and are cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes.
