Recipe by redsparklies

Pressure cooker recipe for Chicken and Dumplings. Very easy to modify to stove top cooking. This has become a family favorite, and is requested over Grandma's Pennsylvania Dutch recipe (shhhh).

Since I don't have a pressure cooker, I had to improvise and just cook stove top in a dutch oven. But this is the recipe I was looking for. The dumplins are wonerful, the chicken is moist, and it has a wonderful chicken flavor to it. Growing up the recipe we were given was a milky, tasteless soup with chicken and biscuits from a can. I love this homemade from scratch recipe with rich flavors and honest to goodness dumplins. Thank you for posting!
