Comforting Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings 

For having success in cooking,  I highly recommend using frozen vegetables. When you use canned they have a tendency to break down during the cooking process a bit more and can end up being slightly mushy. Using frozen vegetables I find gives you that spot-on texture you want when you eat veggies like that in any recipe. I like to buy the bagged mixed vegetables and just keep them in stock in my freezer for a handful of my favorite Instant Pot recipes. 

I have made chicken and dumplings for years, and it wasn’t until the Instant Pot came into my life, I realized how easy they are. Before the Instant Pot, it would take me a good hour to get stuff going at times. With making the dumplings, cooking the chicken, veggies, etc, it just was time consuming. Now, I just dice some chicken and mix ingredients together and get cooking. I also have realized that the electric pressure cooker really helps to hold in the flavor of the food better. Not just in this homemade chicken and dumpling recipe but all around in recipes. From tenderizing meats, infusing flavors, with every single recipe cooked. 

If you love Chicken and Dumplings you will also Love My Instant Pot Chicken Pot Pie Casserole, Chicken Cordon Bleu, Or Even my General Tso’s Chicken 🙂

Instant Pot Sealing Ring Tip 

One thing I will also share for the newbies to the Instant Pot. When you are cooking a variety of dishes in your Instant Pot, consider buying colored sealing rings. This is a great way to remember which color you use for savory dishes like this chicken and dumplings, and which you use for sweets for say lava cake! That way you can do all you can to prevent flavors from meshing together. It took me a long time to get the cabbage odor out of my sealing ring, I would have hated to ruin a cheesecake because the odor soaked into the cheesecake. The sealing rings don’t cost much and they are so worth buying.

Used this recipe tonight and it was wonderful! We used a combo of thigh and breast meat. I also didn’t have cream so I substituted for a can of cream of chicken and added a little orzo to help thicken it up. I added pepper, garlic powder, and parsley. Definitely saving this recipe for future use! Thank you!!! 🙂

I’ve been making chicken & dumplings for 45 years, and eating it for 60. Finally a recipe that is Close to mine! I do make my dumplings from scratch, and use fresh veggies instead of frozen though. Was helpful on the time needed to make my recipe. Without this dish my husband, son and myself would literally have starved to death back in the lean years. I used nothing but chicken wings because back then they were super cheap, made my own broth, and used homegrown green beans. Some weeks that was all we could afford and ate it every day! Surprisingly, we all still love it, lol. Thanks!
