Directions
1.
Sprinkle chicken with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper. Combine the 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning and the chicken in a resealable plastic storage bag; seal bag and shake to coat.
2.
Heat oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add half the chicken; reduce heat to medium and cook until well browned. Set aside. Repeat with remaining chicken. Discard drippings. Cook leeks and onion 5 minutes, until softened. Add enough water to broth to equal 2-1/2 cups; pour into Dutch oven. Add chicken, carrots, celery, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, 30 minutes, until chicken is tender. Stir in peas.
3.
For dumplings, combine the 1-1/2 cups flour, the parsley, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Add half-and-half cream and stir until dough is moistened. Drop 8 heaping tablespoons of dough into Dutch oven. Cover and simmer 12 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in dumpling comes out clean. Makes 4 servings.

Our revision of creamy chicken and dumplings uses whole-wheat flour for the dumplings and adds lots of vegetables to the filling. The delicious, satisfying results are packed with beneficial nutrients and dietary fiber, and because we don't use canned soup for the sauce, sodium levels are drastically reduced. To go even lighter, try the recipe with boneless, skinless chicken breasts.
