    03 Method
    • Step 1
      Melt the butter on low in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add the onion and leek along with a pinch of salt and saute until very soft, about 15 minutes. Add the flour, increase the heat to medium, and stir with a whisk for 2 minutes.
    • Step 2
      Pour in the stock and whisk as it comes to a simmer and starts bubbling. Simmer the stock for 30 minutes, whisking as needed. (Mix the dumpling batter now.)
    • Step 3
      Add the carrots, celery, salt, pepper, thyme, and bay leaf. Bring back to a simmer. Add the cream and diced chicken.
    • Step 4
      Once the soup has come back to a simmer, drop in the biscuits in generous tablespoon-sized amounts into the soup.
    • Step 5
      Reduce the heat to low, cover, and cook for 10-12 minutes, or until the dumplings are fluffy and cooked through. Taste and adjust the seasonings as needed. Serve with extra chopped chives over the top.
    • Step 6
      In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, pepper, baking powder, and baking soda. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and melted butter.
    • Step 7
      Pour the buttermilk mixture into the flour. Sprinkle the chives over the top. Using a large silicone spatula, mix the dumpling batter together in a few swift strokes. Do not overmix.
    • Step 8
      Set the batter aside until it is time to add the dumplings to the soup.
