Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
6 c. chicken broth
2 ribs of celery, broken in half
medium onion (keep it as a chunk of onion)
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, each breast cut in half
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 Tbs. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 c. + 2 Tbs. milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Directions:
1. In a stockpot or Dutch oven, add broth, celery, onion, and chicken breasts.
2. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, for about 15 minutes, until the chicken breast is cooked through. While the chicken is cooking, prepare the dumplings.
3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the milk just until combined into a shaggy dough.
4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll to about 1/4 inch thickness.
5. Use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into strips or squares about 1 to 2 inches in size.
6. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it to a cutting board. Remove the onion chunk and celery pieces and discard.
7. Add the dough strips to the simmering broth and simmer for about 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally, allowing the dumplings to cook and the broth to thicken to a gravy-like consistency.
8. While the dumplings are simmering, shred or chop chicken and return to the pot.
9. Add salt and pepper to taste, then serve warm.

Personal Notes:
If you want to use pre-cooked chicken (such as pulled from a rotisserie chicken), you can! In that case, simmer the onion, celery, and dumplings in the broth at the same time. Remove the onion and celery and add the pulled/chopped chicken during the last 5 minutes of simmering to warm it through.
