I cooked my first real meal yesterday but I needed a little help. Everyone chipped in because I was actually getting a bit wiped out while running around in the kitchen. Bill and Natalie were champs!! Liam… played on his iPad. He had THINGS to do. hahahha
Anyway – here is the recipe. ONE MISTAKE I HAVE TO NOTE: I used bone-in chicken. HORRIBLE mistake. It all separated and I had to pull the bones out before I served to the family. Learn from my mistake.
All in – the entire meal took about 25 minutes to make. Not sure what it would take you if you didn’t use a pressure cooker. And it was DELICIOUS. I mean – out of control delicious!
Pressure Cooker Recipe: Chicken And Dumplings
- 2 pounds of boneless, skinless, chicken thighs (I made the mistake of leaving it on the bone – NOT a smart move)
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 1 large yellow onion diced
- 5 ribs of celery chopped
- 1.5 cups of baby carrots chopped (more if you like them)
- 1.5 cups of frozen corn kernels, thawed
- 5 cups of chicken stock
- 1 3/4 Bisquick baking mix
- 1/4 cups of heavy cream
- 2/3 cups of milk
- Salt and Pepper
- 2 teaspoons of oregano
- 1/4 cup of Parmesean cheese
- 2 teaspoons of poultry seasoning
- Place your pressure cooker on HIGH or BROWN and heat up the butter. Season your chicken (poultry seasoning, salt, pepper and oregano (or thyme if you have it) ) and brown.
- Add in the onion, celery, carrots, chicken stock and a pinch of salt, pepper. Lock your pressure cooker and cook on HIGH for 8 minutes.
- MAKE YOUR Dumplings Mix: Whisk together Bisquick, milk, and parmesean cheese. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. (We also added a little oregano in there – optional).
- Perform a quick release. Let all the steam out. Take off top.
- Set the pressure cooker back to high. Add in your corn and let simmer. Leave the lid off.
- Grab a spoon and drop in your dumplings into the bubbling pressure cooker until entire batter is in pot. Let dumplings simmer for 8-10 minutes. Remember to keep the lid off.
- Turn off the heat. When you are ready to serve, stir in your cream. Add some more salt and pepper (to taste) and ENJOY!
I couldn’t get a good shot of the meal. Have to be honest – it’s not the prettiest dish. BUT IT TASTES SO GOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDD. So, forgive the photography and enjoy the flavor.
