Dumplings are magic—they change clear broth into a thick hearty soup. This dish is one of a trio of culinary delights; all starting with one slow-roasted, free-range chicken from your PCC deli. See Three Meals and a Chicken



Heat oil in a 3-quart saucepan over medium heat. Sauté leeks, carrots, celery, parsnips and herbs until vegetables are soft, 7 to 10 minutes. Add broth, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Add chicken, salt and pepper to taste, cover and bring back to a simmer.

Combine flour, baking powder, parsley, salt and pepper in a bowl. Cut in shortening with your fingers, then quickly stir in milk.

Remove the lid and drop spoonfuls of dumpling dough onto the surface of the soup. It will almost cover the surface. Replace the lid and continue simmering, without peeking, for 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
