Bisquick Dumplings Pressure Cooker Recipe: Chicken And Dumplings

This Bisquick dumplings pressure cooker recipe is a great one to keep in your back pocket. Chicken And Dumplings is a hearty recipe that your entire family will enjoy.

We had Pressure Cooker XL Chicken and Dumplings and they were fantastic. I cooked my first real meal yesterday but I needed a little help. Everyone chipped in because we were all in the mood for some Bisquick Dumplings and I am so happy that we pulled together to make them while I was on bed rest because they were such a treat. This pressure cooker recipe is a real treat and a true show stopper. You need to check it out. 

The full recipe for Bisquick Dumplins is below. 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. Do not use bone-in chicken. I repeat! DO NOT USE BONE-IN CHICKEN. I am technically on bedrest and barely have my life in order. I can sit up for about 20 minutes a day and I didn’t use it to think about what type of chicken to put in my pressure cooker. UGH. (Again sorry)

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!

  1. This is the best chicken and dumplings receipe I ever tried! Adding Parmesan cheese to the dumplings is a nice touch!

  2. Thanks so much! I’ve made chicken soup before, but wanted to make some dumplings instead of noodles, so this recipe will help me out a lot! I don’t add the cream to mine, but everything else seems to be about the same. I probably would’ve tried making the dumplings with the lid still on, so thanks again so much for the tips!! Darin
