Many chicken recipes found in cookbooks and online are not developed specifically for pressure cooker or instant pot preparation. Trying to turn those chicken recipes for cooking into a pressure cooker or Instant Pot can be a bit tricky. Often, beginners use a longer cooking time than necessary, resulting in overcooked chicken.
The good news is that all the recipes I share on Pressure Cooking Today are thoroughly tested before being shared with you. If the instructions are followed as written, this ensures that the recipes you make from this site will end up tasting delicious.
All the recipes I share on Pressure Cooking Today can be prepared in an electric pressure cooker or on a stove. Including electric multicookers, such as the Fagor LUX, Cuisinart, Power Pressure Cooker XL or Instant Pot.
Tips for preparing chicken recipes in a pressure cooker:
- Should your chicken go swimming? When making soups, stews or chili, immersing the chicken completely in liquid during the cooking process is fine. If possible, use a kitchen trivet or steam basket for chicken recipes when the desired end result is steamed or gently cooked chicken.
- Don’t overcook your chicken. No one likes rubbery or hard chicken, so I recommend finding a similar recipe that uses the same cut of chicken. Then follow the instructions and cooking time in that recipe, and substitute your preferred ingredients.
