Instant Pot Chicken Dumpling Soup

Tuesday, November 6, 2018

Chicken and dumplings always reminds me of diners with my grandma... and not in a bad way; in an incredibly warm, fond, satisfying way. I'd say it's comfort food at its finest, and when I came across a recipe recently that translated this classic dish into soup (think the tastiest homemade chicken noodle soup, but sub dough-y dumplings for the noodles), I knew I needed it.

The best part is, while most soups like this take all day in the crockpot, this recipe is for the Instant Pot! If you don't already have one, consider investing -- especially for these chilly fall and winter months that will inevitably beg for a big bowl of soup.

The original recipe actually calls for turkey, but if you prefer chicken like me (and my family), just sub two boneless/skinless chicken breasts. Another fun tip I found out first hand: if you find, midway through cooking, you're out of baking powder (oops), baking soda can be subbed at 1/4 the amount of the amount of baking powder that is called for, plus a little vinegar to react with it. For this recipe, I subbed 1/4 teaspoon baking powder and a 1/2 teaspoon vinegar and the dumplings turned out great. Another great bonus of this recipe: thanks to the fresh sage, your whole house will smell like Thanksgiving!

Recipe is taken and adapted a bit from Cooking Light, found here. Enjoy!
