  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 5 ounces carrots (chopped)
  • 5 ounces onion (chopped)
  • 5 ounces celery (chopped)
  • 2 tsps minced garlic
  • 3 cans Chicken Broth (14.5 ounces)
  • 35 ounces raw chicken breast
  • 2 tbsps flour (white)
  • 1 cup flour (white)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg yolk
  • 4 tsps Knorr Chicken Boullon
  • salt & pepper (to taste)
  1. Add the raw chicken breast, 4 tsps Knorr Chicken Bouillon & 4 cups of water to the instant pot. Set the Instant Pot on “Meat/Stew” for 30 minutes. Quick release or natural release depending on time.

  2. Chop the onions, celery & carrots. Add the oil to a large stockpot. Melt over medium heat & then add the chopped veggies & garlic. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes.

  3. Add the 2 tbsps of white flour and stir thoroughly. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

  4. Remove the chicken from the Instant Pot when done & shred with 2 forks. Reserve 2/3 of a cup of canned chicken broth & place in the fridge. Pour the broth from the Instant Pot & the canned broth into the stock pot. Add the shredded chicken.

  5. Bring the soup to a boil & continue cooking over medium heat for 20 minutes.

  6. Nearing the end of the 20 minutes, mix the 1 cup flour & baking powder in a bowl. In a separate bowl, add the chilled chicken broth & the egg yolk & mix well. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients & mix until moistened. Scoop scant teaspoons of the mixture & drop into the boiling soup.

  7. After all the dumplings have been added, lightly stir the soup to keep them from sticking. Cover & cook an additional 15-18 minutes. Enjoy!
