Yup, I know July is definitely NOT chicken and dumpling weather, but I just HAD to test out this 30 Minute Electric Pressure Cooker* recipe this eve. Thank you, Linnet Wainwright for this delicious recipe!!30 Minute Pressure Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
2 Tbs. unsalted butter
1 1/2 – 2 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1 1/2″ chunks (feel free to sub chicken breasts)
kosher salt and black pepper, to taste
1/2 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. oregano
1/4 tsp. turmeric
1/2 tsp. poultry Seasoning
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 yellow onion, diced
3 ribs celery, diced
2 cups baby carrots
6 cups chicken broth
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup frozen peas
1 3/4 cups Bisquick baking mix (**see below for directions to make your own Bisquick baking mix)
1/3 – 2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup heavy cream
Season chicken pieces as desired with salt and pepper.
Set Electric Pressure Cooker (EPC) to sauté setting and add butter to pot; when butter is sizzling, add chicken pieces, working in batches, until all chicken is browned, approx 5 minutes. Return all chicken to EPC pot, along with all the spices, stirring to combine well.
Stir in onion, celery, and carrots; add chicken broth and stir to combine. Lock EPC’s lid into place and choose High Pressure Setting for 7 minutes. When timer sounds, perform a quick release to remove all pressure from EPC.
Remove lid and set EPC to sauté setting; stir in corn.
Meanwhile, combine Bisquick mix with milk to make dumpling dough; drop by spoonfuls (mine were about 1 1/2″ in size) into the pot and let dumplings simmer for 10 minutes. Turn off heat; stir in peas and cream. Adjust seasonings as desired.
**Here’s how I make my own “Bisquick” baking mix:
Into food processor bowl, place 2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 Tbs. baking powder, 1 tsp. kosher salt, 1 tsp. granulated sugar; pulse to combine. With motor running, pour in 1/4 cup canola or vegetable oil; process just until oil is well incorporated into dry ingredients. Store in an airtight container. Recipe can be easily doubled or tripled to keep more on hand.
