    DH LOVES this recipe and asks for it on lazy Sundays!

    2 tablespoons butter
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 onion - chopped
    3lbs chicken thighs and/or legs
    2 cups chicken broth
    2 carrots - peeled and chopped
    2 stalks celery - chopped
    1 tablespoon minced flatleaf parsley
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    salt to taste
    ***dumpling recipe to follow below***

    1. In a large pan, brown onion in butter and oil until tender. Brown chicken
    parts and place in a 6qt. crockpot.

    2. Add remaining ingredients and cook on HIGH 2 - 3 hours, or LOW 5-7

    3. After cooking for appropriate time, remove chicken parts and let cool,
    then de-bone. DO NOT TURN CROCK POT OFF.

    4. While chicken is cooling, prepare the dumplings:

    2 cups flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 eggs
    1 cup buttermilk

    5. Sift all the dry ingredients.

    6. Beat eggs and milk . Slowly add sifted ingredients to egg/milk mixture.

    7. Add de-boned chicken meat into crockpot.

    8. Drop tablespoons of dumpling dough into hot broth - enough to cover the
    top of the crock. Cook dumplings until done and no longer "doughy"
