I love comfort food and I think one of my favorite comfort food dishes is chicken & dumplings! The dumplings are the best part! I could honestly leave out everything else and just have dumplings in broth. But, then it wouldn’t be called chicken & dumplings, would it?

I received an instant pot last year for Christmas and have only used it once. There is an instant pot group on Facebook so I can find some good recipes and everyone talks about how much they love their instant pot, but I just couldn’t seem to find anything I wanted to cook in mine. While stalking Pinterest, I finally came across this recipe for Instant Pot Chicken & Dumplings and I thought I would try it.

I LOVED it! I’m so glad I came across it because it is super easy and super quick to make. And it’s delicious!!

Chicken Broth

To make this you will need, chicken broth (I use the kind with less sodium), water, olive oil, chicken breast – cubed, refrigerated biscuits, carrots, peas, oregano, onion powder, basil, garlic, salt and pepper. (I left out the salt).


First, you will flatten the biscuits and cut them into 1/2″ strips. I use a glass to flatten my biscuits, but a rolling pin works fine, too.

Put oil, chicken, oregano, onion powder, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper into the instant pot and mix to coat.
