4 chicken thighs, skinned
4 chicken drumsticks, skinned
4 cups fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
3 cups water
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup sliced carrot
3/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (12-ounce) package frozen dumplings (such as Mary B's)
2 teaspoons light butter
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Combine first 9 ingredients in a Dutch oven. Bring to a boil; partially cover. Reduce heat; simmer 45 minutes or until chicken is done. Transfer chicken and vegetables to a large bowl, using tongs; cool slightly.

Bring broth to a boil. Separate frozen dumpling strips; break each strip in half. Add dumplings to broth, 1 at a time, stirring often to prevent sticking. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes.

Meanwhile, remove chicken from bones; cut meat into bite-sized pieces.

Add chicken, butter, and pepper to dumpling mixture; stir well to combine. Simmer 10 minutes, covered, or until dumplings are tender.
