Chicken and Potato Dumplings
  1. In an 8-quart saucepan or pot over medium-high heat, heat oil. Add chicken and cook, turning occasionally, until browned, about 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside. Return the saucepan to the heat and stir in the onion, celery, parsnip, thyme and parsley. Cook, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are just starting to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the reserved chicken and broth. Bring to boiling then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until chicken and vegetables are very tender, about 40 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in medium bowl, combine flour, potato flakes, baking powder and ¼ teaspoon of the salt. Add milk and stir until just moistened. Drip batter by 16 heaping teaspoons onto the broth mixture. Cover, return to a simmer and cook until dumplings are cooked through, 12 to 14 minutes.*
  3. Remove from the heat and stir the remaining ½ teaspoon salt and pepper into the chicken mixture. Divide among 4 bowls. Garnish with additional chopped parsley.
