instant pot chicken and dumplings
I love making this instant pot chicken and dumplings on a cold winter night or to take to friends, family, people who are not feeling well, new moms, newly pregnant moms or really whoever will eat my food! 
 
When people do this for me, I feel like it’s always an answer to prayer and a huge help. 
 
There are a few things I tend to make for people that are kid friendly, easy to make, re-heatable, freezable, and just plain comforting.
 
One of my favorite dishes to make is this chicken and dumpling soup recipe. It is one of those ultimate comfort food recipes that is easy to make!
 
I love soups or stews because they are so comforting and easy to eat for many families. You can make a large quantity to feed both your family and another family with just one recipe.
 
I use these plastic containers to transport the hot soup for no spilling.  I also love to give people a couple sides like a salad or fruit, and then a yummy dessert.  My all time favorite dessert to take to people in need are these Chocolate Chip Cookies.  You really can’t go wrong.
 
So let’s get cooking! Here are some of the common questions I get from this recipe. 
 

Can I use canned biscuits for dumplings:

You definitely can opt for canned biscuits to make chicken and dumplings. This dumpling recipe is really fool-proof and easy though if you want to try homemade ones. 
 
In my opinion the homemade ones just add a whole lot to the dish and are worth it! 

Can you freeze chicken and dumplings:

Yes, you can freeze chicken and dumplings and it’s quite easy. I like to let the mixture cool a little bit before putting it into a freezer safe container. 
 
When I am taking this to a friend or someone who is sick, I like to use these containers. 
 
When you are ready to reheat you will want to thaw the chicken and dumplings completely before placing it on the stovetop to re-heat. This will help the dumplings to not get gummy. 
 

What to serve with chicken and dumplings:

Chicken and dumplings can be a meal in it of itself, but if you would like a side to go along with it I would suggest a simple salad like my copycat nuts about berry salad. 

You can also serve this with some crusty bread or some soft pretzel rolls!
