“Cook time between 4-6 hours. I love the original recipe from them, so this should also be good. I will sub cooking sherry for the white wine. I got the sherry trick from ATK from a different chicken soap recipe and I now add that to all my chicken soup recipes.”

  1. FOR THE STEW: Pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Brown half of chicken all over, 5 to 8 minutes; transfer to slow cooker. Repeat with 1 tablespoon oil and remaining chicken.
  2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon oil in now-empty skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add onions, celery, and carrots and cook until soft, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in garlic, tomato paste, bay leaves, and thyme and cook until fragrant and tomato paste is starting to brown, about 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in flour and cook for 1 minute. Slowly whisk in wine, scraping up any browned bits. Whisk in 1 cup broth and bring to simmer; transfer to slow cooker. Stir remaining 3 cups broth into slow cooker. Cover and cook until chicken is tender, 4 to 6 hours on low. Stir in peas.
  4. FOR THE DUMPLINGS: Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in large bowl. Stir in milk and melted butter until just incorporated. Using greased ¼-cup measure, drop 8 dumplings around perimeter of stew. Cover and cook until dumplings have doubled in size, 30 to 35 minutes. Remove bay leaves and serve.
