    ¾ tsp. Hy-Vee black pepper, divided
    4 tbsp. Hy-Vee salted butter, divided

    2 stalk(s) celery, sliced
    ⅓ c. Hy-Vee Short Cuts chopped white onions

    Things To Grab

    • Paper towels
    • 8-quart electric pressure cooker
    • Plate
    • Medium bowl
    • Glass lid with a venting hole


    1. Pat chicken dry; season with salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons butter on saute setting of an 8-quart electric pressure cooker. Brown chicken in batches in pressure cooker, about 5 minutes per side, then transfer to a plate. 

    2. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons butter in pressure cooker; cook in carrots, celery, onions, and garlic. Cook for 2 minutes or until softened. Add browned chicken and 4 cups broth. Cover and cook on HIGH pressure for 12 minutes. Once chicken has finished cooking, release the valve and allow steam to escape. Carefully remove lid. Transfer chicken to a cutting board; cool slightly.

    3. Shred chicken; add to pressure cooker. Turn on saute setting. Whisk together remaining 1 cup chicken broth, flour, and poultry seasoning. Add to pressure cooker. Stir in peas.

    4. For dumplings, combine baking mix, parsley and/or sage, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in milk just until combined. When mixture in pot reaches a simmer, drop 12 small dumplings by spoonfuls into pressure cooker. Cover with a glass lid with a venting hole and cook on saute setting for 5 to 7 minutes or until dumplings are tender. Garnish each serving with additional parsley, if desired.
