    2 Tablespoons Butter
    2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
    cups All-purpose Flour
    1 whole Chicken, Cut Into Pieces (cut Up Fryer)
    Salt And Pepper
    cups Finely Diced Carrots
    cups Finely Diced Celery
    1 whole Medium Onion, Finely Diced
    teaspoons Ground Thyme
    teaspoons Turmeric
    6 cups Low Sodium Chicken Broth
    cups Apple Cider
    cups Heavy Cream
    1- cup All-purpose Flour
    cups Yellow Cornmeal
    1 Tablespoon (heaping) Baking Powder
    1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
    1- cup Half-and-half
    2 Tablespoons Minced Fresh Parsley (optional)
    Salt As Needed


Sprinkle chicken pieces with salt and pepper, then dredge both sides in flour.
Melt butter in a pot over medium-high heat. In two batches, brown chicken on both sides and remove to a clean plate.
In the same pot, add diced onion, carrots, and celery. Stir and cook for 3 to 4 minutes over medium-low heat. Stir in ground thyme and turmeric, then pour in chicken broth and apple cider. Stir to combine, then add browned chicken. Cover pot and simmer for 20 minutes.
While chicken is simmering, make the dough for the dumplings: sift together all dry ingredients, then add half-and-half, stirring gently to combine. Set aside.
Remove chicken from pot and set aside on a plate. Use two forks to remove chicken from the bone. Shred, then add chicken to the pot. Pour heavy cream into the pot and stir to combine.
Drop tablespoons of dumpling dough into the simmering pot. Add minced parsley if using. Cover pot halfway and continue to simmer for 15 minutes. Check seasonings; add salt if needed. Allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.
