Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings
My favorite part of owning an electric pressure cooker is how it can help me get a classic comfort food recipe on the table in half the time. This Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings would normally take much longer, but with a little help from the store and with my pressure cooker, this recipe is perfect for those busy weekday nights when you need a quick and easy recipe to get on the table.

Easy Chicken and Dumplings
So, back to the recipe. I did take a little help from the grocery store for this one. I use premade biscuit dough for this recipe, but you can certainly make your own biscuit dough.
This is a great recipe to use up some of the vegetables you already have in the fridge. I sometimes will add a cup of frozen peas to the pot before turning it on, but this time I didn’t have any in the freezer. Feel free to make this recipe your own.
Homemade Chicken and Dumplings
To get started you will add oil, chicken, and garlic to your Instant Pot and cook the mixture using the saute function. If your pressure cooker doesn’t have this function you can do this step on the stove top.
When the chicken is browned, add broth, carrots, celery, and spices and mix well.
Add the cut up biscuits to pot, place the lid on the instant pot and seal shut.
Set the instant pot to manual, high pressure for 5 minutes.
When the cooking cycle is complete, carefully quick release pressure and open the pot.
