Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings – Gluten Free

Nothing says comfort food like Chicken and Dumplings!  The gluten free dumplings can be made with Bisquick if you have it on hand or from scratch if you do not have Bisquick in the house.

To begin I cut up some boneless, skinless chicken thighs into bite size pieces.

Next I chopped up all the vegetables.  This included potatoes, carrots, celery and onion.

I then added olive oil to the Instant Pot and turned it to saute normal.  Once it said HOT I added the cut up chicken and cooked until just a little bit of pink remained.  Then I removed the chicken from the Pot.

While the chicken was cooking I prepared the dough for the dumplings.  In a small bowl I mixed the almond milk, salt, melted margarine, egg, Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend, baking powder and meringue powder.

You can choose to make your dumplings with Bisquick if you prefer.  I have included that recipe on the recipe card as well under the Notes section.

I used a fork to blend the dough ingredients together well.  I set the dough aside until it was needed.

After removing the chicken from the Pot I turned the saute function back on and added the chopped up onion.  

When the onions softened I added the minced garlic, carrots and celery.  I cooked it for about 1 minute.

I then turned the saute function off and added one cup of the chicken broth.  I used it to deglaze the Pot by scraping any brown bits off the bottom.

Now I added the chopped potatoes, the remaining 4 cups of chicken broth and the browned chicken thighs.

I dropped the dumplings on top with a small scoop that measured out by the tablespoon.

To cook I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set it to Pressure Cook High for 3 minutes.

When finished I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 15 minutes then turned the steam release handle to the venting position.

I stirred in a cup of frozen peas.  At this point it will be like soup so if you want a more stew like consistency turn it back to saute normal and add the 3 packets of chicken gravy powder and stir until thickened.

Serve and enjoy!
