The dish that used to take hours at the hot stove comes together in a matter of minutes thanks to the magic of the instant pot. But there is absolutely no sacrifices in the flavor department.
Soft, pillow like biscuits are cooked to perfection, soaking in the flavorful chicken broth infused with herbs and are accompanied by lean chicken meat and vegetables. All the complimenting flavors with delicately tasting biscuits really caring out the other flavors beautifully. This meal will fix the carb cravings in no time.
