Slow Cooker & Homemade Chicken & Dumplings

My Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings and my Made From Scratch Chicken and Dumplings are my favorite comfort foods.  The problem is I do not always plan ahead of time.

Pressure Cooker Chicken And Dumplings

When I do not plan ahead of time, I can toss everything into the pressure cooker and within minutes you dinner is ready.  It took 25 minutes on high pressure the chicken, vegetables, and seasonings.  After you release the pressure in the cooker, remove the chicken and shred it.  Once you remove the chicken, turn the pressure cooker to browning mode and added the dumplings.  It did not take long to cook the dumplings because the liquid in the pressure cooker is extremely hot.

First Step:  Put Ingredients In The Pressure Cooker

  • Add the chicken breast, minced celery, minced onion, bay leaves, black pepper, Cajun seasoning, cream chicken soup, chicken stock, poultry seasoning, heavy cream into the bottom of the pressure cooker.
  • Cook on high pressure for 25 minutes.

Second Step: While Chicken is cooking, make the dumplings.

  • In a large bowl mix flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, and salt together.  Do not worry about Cayenne pepper being too hot.  It is not hot when mixed in all the flour.  It adds a whole lot of flavor.
  • Slowly add half and half until a batter has formed into a ball.

Third Step: Roll Out The Dumplings

  • Flour the surface.
  • Roll dough out to 1/8 inch thick.
  • Flour both sides and the rolling pin before rolling the dough out.
  • Cut into 2-inch squares.

Fourth Step: Release The Pressure On The Pressure Cooker

  • After 25 minutes, place a towel over the release pressure valve and release the pressure.
  • Once pressure is released, remove the lid.

Fifth Step:

  • Remove the chicken.

Sixth Step: Drop Dumplings

  • Drop dumplings in the pressure cooker as soon as you remove the lid while it is hot.
  • The dumplings will cook in minutes without turning the pressure cooker back on.

Seventh Step:  Shred The Chicken After Dropping The Dumplings

  • Shred the chicken and drop it back into the pressure cooker.
  • Stir well.
