One Hour Pressure Cooker Chicken Broth Recipe | Little Spice Jar
Learn how to make chicken broth in a pressure cooker in an hour. This is a simple and basic recipe that can be easily customized to your liking!
And so, I’m tamed and making my Own chicken broth and everything.
But you know what, I’m a cheater. That’s who I am. Because we are making a quick and easy pressure chicken broth that takes an hour plus 5 minutes to prepare. And the countless benefits! Let’s talk about how it’s low sodium, made to your liking, FRESH, you get a whole cooked chicken when you’re done, and something about homemade chicken broth that tastes 1000 times better than store-bought stuff.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m definitely not above store-bought chicken broth. It’s perfect for when you need to dine at the table quickly. Or when you’re under the weather and you NEED chicken soup with noodles FAST and you can’t even think about making your own broth.
But around this time, when the weather starts to cool down, I love making a batch of pressure cooker chicken broth to keep in the freezer. Not only do you get a whole cooked chicken at the end, but you also get about 2 quarts of the freshest, preferentially made chicken broth. You can keep chicken broth or broth in the refrigerator for 5 days. And it will last 2 months in the freezer. Just put it in the microwave for a few minutes and BAM: homemade chicken broth at your fingertips.
This July, I took the plunge and invested in an Instant Pot. And I have to say I LOVE it. I went into everything thinking I would use it as a slow cooker or even to cook rice or quinoa quickly. What I didn’t see myself doing is making chicken broth under pressure. He usually let a large pot of water simmer with vegetables and a whole chicken for at least half the day in the background of the stove. Low and slow. And usually, I mean the TWO TIMES in my adult life that I’ve made chicken broth from scratch without using a pressure cooker.
If you are not familiar with the Instant Pot, let me explain. It is an electric pressure cooker / / slow cooker / / yogurt / rice cooker / / vaporizer // pan // all-in-one porridge maker.
What I love about this pressure cooker chicken broth recipe is that it takes 5 minutes to prepare the chicken and vegetables. Then you add everything to the Instant Pot and let it do it. It will take about 20 minutes for the pressure to build up. Then 1 hour for the broth to PREPARE. So sit back, catch up on a couple of episodes of Gilmore Girls (can you say I’m excited?) while your whole house smells like slow-boiled chicken broth.
You have a few different options for making chicken broth in the pressure cooker. I like to use a whole, raw skin on chicken. Because when it’s done, I have a whole chicken that I can crush and use in a recipe or freeze for later. You can also use 2 1/2-3 pounds of chicken pieces, such as chicken wings, thighs, necks, or thighs. Chicken breasts generally don’t make the best chicken broth, so I suggest pieces that have bones. The last option, use 2-3 roasted chicken carcasses. That’s a terrible word, ‘corpses’ and I’m terribly sorry I used it.
What makes this chicken broth very special, the 5 minutes it took to seal the skin. This causes the skin to brown and adds a lot of flavor to the final product. One thing that sets this chicken broth recipe apart is a couple of teaspoons of nutritional yeast. It is said to help stimulate immune functions and has antiviral properties. Don’t worry, using nutritional yeast is completely optional, but I think it adds good flavor and color to the broth.
