In a medium bowl, whisk together milk and oil. Gradually stir in flour, baking powder and salt until a soft dough forms. Set aside.
Cut each chicken breast in half, and place halves in the bottom of an oiled, 11‚ĀĄ2-quart casserole dish or 8- by 8-inch glass baking dish. Cover chicken with onion, celery and carrots. Sprinkle sage and

Distribute 2-inch balls of the dumpling dough evenly over the casserole. Cover tightly and bake at 325 degrees F for 90 minutes.
