Directions Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Season the chicken with teaspoon each salt and pepper. Brown in batches, 4 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate; reserve the pot.Add the celery, carrots, onions, thyme, and garlic to the drippings in the pot and cook, stirring, until the vegetables begin to soften, 5 to 7 minutes.

Shred the chicken with 2 forks and return it to the pot (discarding the skin and bones).Whisk together cup of the flour, 2 cups of the cooking liquid, and teaspoon each salt and pepper in a small bowl. Slowly whisk the flour mixture back into the pot and simmer until slightly thickened, 8 to 10 minutes.Make the dumplings: Whisk together the remaining 2 cups of flour, the baking powder, baking soda, and teaspoon each salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Whisk in the butter, buttermilk, and parsley. Reduce heat to low and drop the mixture into the broth in 8 large spoonfuls. Simmer, covered, until the dumplings are firm, 12 to 15 minutes.
