This Instant Pot Chicken Dumpling Soup is the perfect comfort food! It’s a hearty soup full of veggies, tender chicken, and topped with dumplings.
Instant Pot Chicken and Dumplings are one of my family’s favorite meals lately. It’s heartier than chicken noodle soup, and my kiddos love the drop biscuit dumplings.
This recipe is one that I’ve used for as long as I can remember for the stovetop and I just modified to cook in the Instant Pot.
I was nervous about how the dumplings would cook under pressure, but they turned out great! I will admit that they aren’t quite as fluffy as their stovetop-cooked counterpart but for the time cooking in the Instant Pot saves me, I think it’s worth it.
Cooking Tips for Instant Pot Chicken Dumpling Soup:
- Don’t have an Instant Pot? No problem! This can be easily made on the stovetop. Follow the direction in the recipe through mixing the dumpling batter. Bring the soup to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Place small spoonfuls of dumpling dough into the soup, cover pot and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until the dumplings are set. Cooking on the stovetop yields less tender chicken, but is still delicious!
- Instead of using frozen veggies, feel free to use up any veggies you have in the fridge/pantry. Carrots, zucchini, brussels sprouts, potatoes, green beans, corn, spinach, etc. all work well and will make the soup your own!

Tools I Use For Instant Pot Chicken Dumpling Soup:
- The Instant Pot 🙂 : This is the model that I have and LOVE. My Instant Pot has been with me for over a year and I’ve definitely put it through the ringer, but still works like new! It’s changed the dinnertime routine at our house and helps me make meals in under an hour that used to take HOURS!
- OXO Handheld Slicer: I love this little tool when making soup because it slices small amounts of veggies quickly and easily and I don’t have to dirty a cutting board– I just slice right over the pot! I especially love it for carrots and celery.
