Things To Grab

  • 8-quart Instant Pot
  • Wooden toothpick
  • Clean plate


  1. Heat oil in an 8-quart Instant Pot or pressure cooker on SAUTE setting. When HOT displays, add chicken. Cook, uncovered, 4 minutes, turning halfway through.

  2. Turn off Instant Pot. Add chicken broth, garlic, 2 thyme sprigs and poultry seasoning. Lock lid in place and set valve to SEALING position. Cook on HIGH PRESSURE 7 minutes. Allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes. Place towel over release valve; move to VENTING position (Quick Release) to release remaining pressure. Carefully remove lid, allowing steam to escape.

  3. Return Instant Pot to SAUTE setting and bring broth to a boil. Cut each biscuit in half and roll into a ball. Drop dough balls one at a time into boiling mixture; stir to keep the biscuit dumplings separated. Cook, uncovered 8 to 10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in biscuit dumplings comes out clean, stirring occasionally.

  4. Transfer dumplings to a clean plate; loosely cover to keep warm. Remove and discard thyme sprigs. Stir in mixed vegetables, chicken gravy, and sour cream. Stir together corn starch and water; stir into chicken mixture. Cook on SAUTE setting 4 to 6 minutes or until thickened, stirring frequently.

  5. To serve, spoon chicken mixture into serving bowls. Top with dumplings. Garnish with parsley and black pepper, if desired.
