  4. Add the dry herbs and bay leaf, and cook a moment.
  5. Add the flour, and stir in well to coat evenly.
  6. Add the stock, cream and potatoes.
  7. Simmer until the potatoes are soft, about 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure nothing is tuck to the bottom of the pot.
  8. In the last 5 minutes, add the dumplings.
  9. Season with salt and pepper, then add in the freshly chopped parsley and diced chicken breasts.
  10. For the dumplings:
  11. Combine all the ingredients into a dough.
  12. Pull small pieces off and either roll them into balls or keep their more rustic form.
  13. In the last 5 minutes of cooking the soup, drop in the dumplings to cook.
  14. For the pot pie dough:
  15. Heat the oven to 400 F.
  16. The easiest way to make this is in a food processor.
  17. Add the butter, flour and salt, and process until there are no big chunks of butter remaining.
  18. Slowly pour in the water until the dough forms a ball.
  19. Knead a moment, adding a little more flour if the dough is sticky.
  20. Wrap in plastic and let rest at least 20 minutes.
  21. Portion into small balls and roll out to cover the size bowl you will be using.
  22. In that bowl, place the soup with the dumplings.
  23. Cover with one of the pot pie lids, and brush with egg wash.
  24. Bake for 6-7 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
