  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan or pot over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic for 5 minutes, then stir in chicken and saute until browned, about 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in broth, vegetables, sage and thyme; mix all together and let simmer over medium heat while preparing the dumplings.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix flour and parsley together. Add shortening and stir mixture into a coarse, mealy dough. Stir in buttermilk, a little bit at a time, until dough holds together and is soft but firm. (If needed, add up to 2 tablespoons more buttermilk).
  3. Bring chicken mixture to a boil over medium high heat and drop round spoonfuls of dumpling mixture on top (do not let dumplings touch each other). Reduce heat to low, cover pot and let simmer for 10 to 12 minutes.

I don't know what I did wrong. This was my first attempt at dumplings and I'm no chef but based on the recipe, there didn't seem like enough liquid to poach the dumplings. It smelled wonderful...

Take the time to place the dough on a floured surface and roll it out to no more than 1/2" thickness. Cut into 1" wide strips (don't worry about the length of the strips). Bring the broth to a b...

Seriously, all the boys in our house loved this. My husband had seconds. I have NEVER made dumplings before and this was easy. I do think it could have more broth added to make more sauce. Ta...

I absolutely LOVED the dumplings! They were so light and the buttermilk and parsley made them taste awesome. I think the key is to not use too much liquid. I used 2/3 c. of buttermilk + 2T. ...

This recipe is great, but if you are sreving more than one or two people you are going to increase the ingredients quite a bit. I fed 6 hungry men and 2 two year olds with the recipe adjusted fo...

Not quite what I expected. The mixture seemed a bit "brothy" and the dumplings didn't quite work. At first, there wasn't enough liquid to hold them together, so I put in more buttermilk and th...

This had a very good flavor and was very easy to make. My family enjoyed this a lot. My only suggestion is to increase the sauce. It doesn't make enough. The dumplings were very good, but took a...
