Chicken with Parsley Dumplings

I got out the ingredients for a big pot of Chicken soup and decided to make dumplings with it, these dumplings are a little different with added Parsley, a nice flavor and a hearty warm comfort food to brighten your cold days.Try a pot!! Enjoy

What You will Need:
1 teaspoon vegetable or olive oil
2 cups chopped onion
1 cup sliced carrots
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces, about 2 cups
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 cup frozen peas
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
8 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tablespoon olive oil

Directions
In a large stock pot over medium high heat, add the oil. Add the onions and carrots and saute for 1 minute. Add the chicken and cook just until the chicken starts to brown, but is not cooked through. Add the mushrooms, peas, and 1/4 teaspoon salt and stir to combine. Add the chicken broth and set pan over high heat. Bring to a boil. Let simmer 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, parsley, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Add buttermilk and oil and stir with a fork until mixture comes together. Using a large spoon or a small ice cream scoop, drop 8 golf ball size (mold with your hands, if necessary) dumplings into simmering liquid. Cover pan and cook 5 minutes (no peeking allowed!), until dumplings are puffed up and cooked through.
