Instant Pot Chicken And Dumplings Recipe

This Instant Pot Chicken And Dumplings recipe is so easy and delicious to make, it will become a dinner staple.  You have to love an easy comfort food meal to make.

I have to admit, I was really late on the Instant Pot train.  Sure I saw all these delicious pressure cooker recipes pop up on my Pinterest and Facebook feed but I really did not believe it would be so great as everyone claimed.  And then I broke down and bought an Instant pot and now I am hooked.  I started off slow and make this Broccoli & Cheese Soup and then I tried my hand at an Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese.  Amazing is how they turned out!

I was motivated to make ALL THINGS INSTANT POT after that.  My husbands favorite meal is Chicken and Dumplings, so of course that had to be next on my list!  Truth is, I am really really bad at making Chicken and Dumplings.  I have attempted it on the stove and in a Crockpot.  All fails.  Third time is a charm, they say.

  • We made this and it looks nothing like the picture you posted. It’s brown and runny and doesn’t taste a thing like true chicken and dumplings.

    • That is so strange, I make this regularly and have never had this problem! Do you do the quick release on your Instant Pot?

  • I’m planning on making this tonight! What size tube of biscuits do you use? There are like three different sizes and none of them struck me as ‘normal’ size.

  • I made this tonight! My husband and kids really liked it! I did have to give it an additional 5 minutes at the end because the dumplings weren’t all the way done after the listed 5 minutes. All and all though definitely something I will make again!

  • This is a wonderful recipe. I used 3/4 of grands biscuit roll, added another 1/2 cup of broth and two medium potatoes diced fine to thicken, plus I added the extra 5 minutes of cooking time. Turned out delicious!!!
