This is a great recipe for getting a meal on the table fast. It also works great without a pressure cooker....just simmer about 20 minutes longer until the chicken starts to fall apart. I also feel strongly about not using chicken stock w/MSG in it - buy the all-natural kind! Its so much better!
This is a good basic pressure cooker risotto recipe. I was skeptical at the idea of quality risotto from a pressure cooker, but this produces the texture and consistency of normal risotto without the continuous stirring. I wouldn't make this with canned chicken broth - the flavor ends up overly salty and metallic.

This risotto is reason enough to buy a pressure cooker. Forget all those wive's tales about these things blowing up... they have a new, safer generation. This is a no-stir risotto that could compete with the best! I serve it as is, but you could add a cooked vegetable or bits of meat after the pressure has fallen and the rice is cooked.

This is a quicker version of my Recipe #145910. The only real difference between this and the long simmering version is that you don't have to remember to soak the beans overnight, and the beans retain more texture. My dad loves the original recipe, and he declared this to be just as good.
I like to cook this and afterwards put the broth through a sieve and use later for making french onion soup. I figure the vegetables are way overcooked but makes a wonderful broth. I like to cook all fresh vegetables to serve with the roast.
Up to you. Everyone is different...............which is a good thing.
Modified from "Pressure Perfect" by Lorna Sass. I got a pressure cooker last Christmas and until yesterday, it was still sitting in the box. I vowed to use it before this Christmas, and this was the first thing I made in it. I made a few substitutions based on what I had on hand, and I was so happy with the results.
Serve with rice, pasta or potatoes.
Of all the recipes there are for baked beans, this is one of the simpler ones to make. If you're not into pressure cooking you should try it, try it with baby steps at first, and I know that you will enjoy immensely, starting with this recipe!!
