  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 or 3 celery stalks sliced
  • 4 to 6 carrots peeled and sliced
  • 1 medium onion
  • 6 chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups milk
  • 4 tablespoons oil


  • Combine stock, celery, carrots, onion, parsely, pepper, and chicken in a large Dutch oven. Bring to a boil on the stove. Reduce heat to simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove the chicken thighs. Cool enough to handle. Dice the meat into bite sized pieces. Discard the bones and skin. Return diced chicken to stock mixture.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and oil to form a stiff dough.
  • Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls into the stock mixture. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Cool slightly. Serve in bowls.
