Gotta love a pressure cooker to shorten what is usually an all day project when simmering the stock on the stove. A helpful hint: To deepen the chicken flavor, I first roast the chicken parts in a baking pan or roaster, at 350 degrees, until they brown, which takes about 45 minutes to an hour. Then I add the parts and all the drippings into the pressure cooker. I also stir the water into the roasting pan first to pick up any flavors left from the roasted parts, scraping up any bits left stuck to the pan. That "brown stuff" stuck to the bottom of the pan imparts a lot of yummy chicken flavor into the finished stock. I hate wasting flavor. And Yes! I am glad you specify to leave the onion unpeeled. The skins add a nice flavor and deepen the color of the stock. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Hey Jude!
Great stock and a real time saver. Don't think the flavor was compromised in any way cooking it this way..... saved me at least a couple of hours. thanks
I'm using this recipe again! Always perfect!
5 stars for a super easy recipe. I also used roast chicken bones from a whole bird as I think the flavour deepens a lot. I got seven beakers that hold about one and a half cups each of stock, as I find that the beakers are quicker and easier to get the frozen stock out of than plasic bags. Personal preferance of course. I skipped the chicken feet as my birdie had lost those already when I bought it... Please see my rating system: 5 stars for a great stock recipe that can be adapted to personal taste. Thanks!
Absolutely the best stock recipe. I added a couple of whole cloves and some dill weed. I thought I was the only one that used chicken feet still? This is how I do stock now.
This is a good starting point for pressure cooker chicken stock. I've adapted it some to fit what I prefer, and I make my version of it alot. I use the carcass of a roasted chicken (usually my Basic Roast Chicken) instead of raw chicken parts. I like the flavor better that way. I peel the carrot, and the onion before quartering, and use a whole palmful of peppercorns. I also add flat leaf parsley and dried bay leaves. I up the water amount to 10 cups, and the cooking time to 40 minutes. That yeilds me 8 cups of stock. I like to freeze it flat 2 cups at a time in quart sized freezer bags. (This is much easier to do if you use a canning funnel to fill the bags.) I'm only giving this recipe 3 stars as is because I tried it with raw chicken parts, and I found the flavor way too subdued for my taste.
I also like the fact that this recipe gives you 7 cups of homemade broth. That is equivalent to 7 cans of the storebought stuff. A real savings!
This recipe is fast, easy and good! I added the traditional "bouquet garni" ingredients (parsley stems, cloves, bay leaves and thyme). I have already made this on numerous occasions; it has now become the way I make chicken stock!!
Yum. I did this with a longer cooking time so that it would be absolutely infused with all the tastes and really enjoyed it. You can't go wrong with a pressure cooker.
Used it for turkey stock. In addition, I also added a couple chicken bouillion cubes for flavor. Unbelievable how much more richer and flavorful it was done in the pressure cooker. It beats all other vessels, hands down!
