Ingredients
  Chicken 1 , cut into serving pieces and skinned
  Celery stalk 1 Large, sliced
  Yellow onion 1 Large, sliced
  Carrot 1 Small, peeled and sliced thin
  Garlic 2 Clove (10 gm), minced
  Low sodium chicken broth 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Dried thyme 1⁄2 Teaspoon, crumbled
  Dill weed 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Whole cloves 4
  Low fat plain yogurt 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Cornstarch 2 Tablespoon, blended
  All purpose flour 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs), sifted
  Baking powder 1 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1⁄8 Teaspoon
  Snipped fresh dill/Minced parsley 2 Tablespoon
  Unsalted margarine 2 Teaspoon
  Ice water 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Directions

In a heavy 6 quart Dutch oven, simmer the chicken, celery, onion, carrot, garlic, chicken broth, water, dill weed, thyme, and cloves, covered, for 30 minutes.
Let stand to cool.
Remove the meat from the bones and cut into bite size pieces.
Strain the broth and return it to the pot.
Bring to a boil over moderate heat, then remove from the heat and whisk in the cornstarch yogurt mixture.
Cook, stirring, for 1 minute or until slightly thickened. (Do not allow the sauce to boil or the yogurt will curdle.)
Return the chicken to the pot and keep warm.
For the dumplings, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and fresh dill in a medium size bowl.
Cut in the margarine with a pastry blender or two knives until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
Stir in just enough ice water to make a light but workable dough.
Shape into 12 balls.
Bring the chicken to a boil, drop in the dumplings, spacing them evenly, and lower the heat so that the broth bubbles gently.
Cover and cook for 20 minutes.
Ladle into soup plates, and serve with Roasted Vegetable Salad,
