Chicken and Dumplings is the perfect (gluten free) comfort food because what could be better than DOUGH in a soup? They’re like little pillows of happiness.
This Gluten Free Chicken and Dumplings taste just like the real deal. The dumplings are light and fluffy and best of all we’re making this recipe in the Instant Pot so it comes together in a flash!
You’ll start by mixing up the dumplings with the Bobs Red Mill Gluten Free 1:1 All-Purpose Flour, baking powder, xantham gum, salt, an egg, and a bit of milk.
For the soup you’ll start by sautéing the onion, carrot and celery with the butter and spices. Add in the bone broth, potatoes, and chicken then place spoonfuls of the dumpling dough on top of the soup. Cover and cook for just 12 minutes and you’ve got one delicious pot of gluten free chicken and dumplings.
One of the key things to make sure your chicken and dumplings are super flavorful is to use a quality chicken bone broth, the kind that looks like jello when cold.
You can make your own pretty easily by simmering vegetable leftovers with chicken bones and a splash of apple cider vinegar for 8 or so hours or you can use your favorite store-bought bone broth.

Mix together the dumpling ingredients in a large bowl just until a dough forms. Be sure not to over mix or they will be heavy instead of light and fluffy.
Press the saute function on the Instant Pot and add in the ghee. Once hot, brown the chicken for 3-4 minutes per side.
Add in the onion, celery, and carrot. Saute for 4-5 minutes until soft. Add in the spices and saute an additional 30 seconds.
Add the potatoes to the Instant Pot and stir.
Pour in the broth and place spoonfuls (about 2 tablespoons per dumpling) of the dumpling dough on top of the soup.
Place the lid on the Instant Pot and set to manual high pressure for 12 minutes. Once done let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes then release manually.
Remove the chicken and shred. Stir in the milk or cream then add in the shredded chicken. Taste for salt and serve.
