Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings – Perfect for Beginners

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

Chicken and Dumplings might be one of my new favorites! This recipe is basic that even those that are new or a beginner will be able to make it! And if you are wondering…. the biscuits just a tad soggy, tastes incredible!
