Chicken & Dumplings is one of my new favorite crock pot recipes. It’s so easy to throw everything in the crock pot, turn it on and let it go until dinner time. Unfortunately I don’t always plan ahead so I decided to test the recipe in my electric pressure cooker. Guess what? It turned out great! Less than 30 minutes and it was on the table! Yum!!
4 Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 T butter
1 Can Cream of Chicken soup
1 Can chicken broth
1 Can refrigerated biscuits
Seasoning to taste
Chives or parsley for garnish
Place chicken in electric pressure cooker and top with chunks of butter. Pour in soup and broth. Set pressure cooker to 8 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes to pressurize and when the timer goes off carefully do a quick pressure release. Remove chicken breasts and cut into small pieces. Return to electric pressure cooker. Cut each biscuit into 9 pieces then stir into chicken mixture. Replace lid and set timer for 3 minutes. Once the timer goes off do a quick pressure release then add seasonings to taste and garnish with chives or parsley. The biscuits should be doughy like dumplings but not raw in the center. If they aren’t quite done just put the lid back on the cooker and let them sit in the hot mixture for a couple of minutes!
To make this in the crock pot instead just cook for 3 1/2-4 hours on high, remove and cut chicken into pieces then add the biscuits and cook for an additional hour or so.
