Bisquick Dumpling Recipe

I cooked my first real meal yesterday but I needed a little help since I am still on bed rest. Everyone chipped in because we were all in the mood for my Bisquick Dumpling recipe and I am so happy that we pulled together to make them because they were such a treat.

This Bisquick chicken and dumplings recipe is a real treat and a true show stopper. You need to check it out. 

The full recipe for Bisquick drop dumplings 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.

There are so many delicious vegetables that you can serve alongside your Bisquick dumpling recipe. The options are endless.

Do You Thicken Chicken And Dumplings?

chicken and dumplings recipe

I don’t think you need to thicken this Bisquick chicken and dumplings recipe at ALL, but if you want to thicken the soup base on your chicken and dumplings, you’ll need to do it before you add in your dumplings.

So, this is a decision you will have to make before you get started which is strange because usually, it’s something you decide while you are cooking, right?

But we are using a pressure cooker for this Bisquick dumpling recipe! So, the lid will be closed and we can’t really watch the progress of our dinner as it cooks. Not like a soup on the stove.

If you know in your heart you like a THICK Bisquick chicken dumplings, then take about 1/3 cup of the prepared liquids, place it into a bowl, and whisk in 2 teaspoons of cornstarch. Pour it back into the pressure cooker and stir. This will thicken your Bisquick Dumpling recipe.

What Are The Benefits Of A Pressure Cooker?

The best benefit for me is that a pressure cooker reduces cooking time by as much as 70%. For someone who doesn’t want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen, this is a life saver. 

How Much Does A Pressure Cooker Cost?

I have to say that it really does matter of the make and model of what you choose. It can be anywhere from $50 to $200! It all depends on your taste. This InstaPot is $99 and has many functions in one – including pressure cooking. We have also thoroughly enjoyed this one.

What Can Be Cooked Inside Of A Pressure Cooker?

Oh my goodness – what CAN’T be cooked? Vegetables, meats, soups, grains, stews, stocks, lentils  You can also brown, boil, steam, poach, steam roast, braise, stew, or roast food.

  3. 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
