Sweet BBQ Pressure Cooker/ Grilled Chicken

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Heather Campbell

This is a combination of two recipes that I have used. I have been obsessed with my pressure cooker lately and thought this would bring tenderness and juiciness to grilled BBQ chicken. It turned out awesome!

OMG! This was wonderful! I did not use beer, just added 12 oz more water and some fresh rosemary and sage to the broth. Followed the times with my electric Nesco pressure cooker and the grill. We used all drumsticks and they did not get crispy, but were so tender and not greasy at all. 5 lbs of legs disappeared in minutes! And I can't wait to make soup from the fragrant broth.
