    KateL's Note:

    Entered for safe-keeping, adapted from Juliana Grimes from September 2010 Cooking Light. Calls for 8-quart pressure cooker. Includes a bountiful amount of baby carrots, cremini mushrooms, and pearl onions. Produces a reduced savory sauce. For the best textured vegetables, all the carrots, onions and mushrooms to come to pressure, and then immediately take them off the heat and release pressure (using quick release method). Serving = 1 chicken leg quarter, 1 1/4 cups vegetables, and about 1/4 cup sauce. Recommended wine: Iron Horse 2008 Chardonnay (Green Valley of Russian River Valley) has a bushelful of juicy apples balanced with creamy lemon, a hint of gravelly minerality, and the barest touch of toast.
