Ingredients
  1. 1 3/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  2. 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
  3. 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  4. 2 large carrots, diced
  5. 2 stalks celery, diced
  6. 1 large onion, diced
  7. 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  10. 2 14 ounce cans reduced-sodium chicken broth
  11. 1 cup water
  12. 1 1/2 cups frozen peas, thawed
  13. 1 cup whole-wheat pastry flour
  14. 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  15. 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  16. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  17. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  18. 3/4 cup nonfat buttermilk, (see Tip)
Instructions
  1. 1. Toss chicken with 23 cup all-purpose flour in a medium bowl until coated. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Reserving the remaining flour, add the chicken to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a plate.
  2. 2. Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pot. Stir in carrots, celery, onion, 1 tablespoon poultry seasoning, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Sprinkle the reserved flour over the vegetables; stir to coat. Stir in broth, water, peas and the reserved chicken. Bring to a simmer, stirring often.
  3. 3. To prepare dumplings: Meanwhile, stir whole-wheat flour, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Stir in buttermilk.
  4. 4. Drop the dough, 1 tablespoon at a time, over the simmering chicken stew, making about 18 dumplings. Adjust heat to maintain a gentle simmer, cover and cook undisturbed until the dumplings are puffed, the vegetables are tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
Tip
  1. 1. Tip: No buttermilk? You can use buttermilk powder prepared according to package directions. Or make "sour milk": mix 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar to 1 cup milk.
