    1. Sprinkle the chicken pieces with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a heavy frypan and cook the chicken in batches until browned, about 5 minutes a side. Remove and set aside.
    2. To the frypan, add onions and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the flour and cook another minute.
    3. Add the hot water and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Add mushrooms, carrots, celery, thyme, salt and pepper.
    4. Return the chicken to the frypan with any accumulated juices and bring to a simmer over low heat. Cover and cook 30 minutes.
    5. After the chicken has been cooking 10 minutes, make the dumplings. Mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. In a saucepan heat the milk and butter just to a simmer.
    6. Add the milk to the dry ingredients and stir with a fork until the dough just comes together. Roll dough into about 18 little balls.
    7. Push the chicken down so it is submerged by the juices and lay the dumplings on the surface. Cover and simmer last ten minutes.
