Step 1

For the canned biscuits, roll each one flat and cut into 6 equal slices. Do this to all 6 and set aside in a bowl. You can also just cud them and not roll them flat.

Step 2

Put all ingredients except milk in a bowl and use a pastry cutter or a fork to mix well and incorporate the shortening into the dry ingredients.

Step 3

Stir the milk (and chives, if using) in and combine, until just moistened. Set aside.

Step 4

Turn the pressure cooker on to the Sauté setting. When the pot is hot, add the olive oil and the butter. Then add the onion and bay leaf. Stir.

Step 5

Add the carrot, celery, and garlic. Cook for a few minutes, scraping the bottom of the pot to get up any brown bits (deglaze).

Step 6

Add the salt, pepper, poultry seasoning, sage, thyme, and rosemary. Cook for a few seconds to let the spices become fragrant.

Step 7

Add the chicken broth. Put a glass lid on the pot and let the contents warm up to barely a simmer.

Step 8

Add the potato and chicken and stir.

Step 9

Add the dumplings.Homemade: Drop heaping teaspoonfulls into the broth (not too large as they need to cook through, and they expand).Biscuits: Add the sliced biscuits into the broth and gently stir to distribute them.

Step 10

Cancel the Sauté function.

Step 11

Place the lid on the pot and lock in place. Turn the steam release knob to the sealing position.

Step 12

Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button (or dial) and then the + or - button (or dial) to select 7 minutes.

Step 13

When the cooking cycle has finished, do a Controlled Quick Release of the steam/pressure. Start by using a wooden spoon or other long handled utensil to turn the steam release knob towards Venting, and start letting the steam out gradually.Do this several times, and back off if any of the sauce starts to spew out with the steam. Then open it all the way when you feel certain only steam will be coming out. It will take a couple of minutes to fully vent.

Step 14

When the pin in the lid drops down, open the lid carefully, and stir in the frozen peas or mixed vegetables. You may need to push the dumplings aside if you made the fluffy kind.

Step 15

Stir in the heavy cream (if using) and put the glass lid on to let it sit and heat through for 3-5 minutes.

Step 16

Taste and adjust salt, if needed.
