PRESSURE COOKER CHICKEN RECIPE
- 2 tbs canola or olive oil
- 6 breast halves, lightly floured
- 1/4 cup chopped onions
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1/4 cup white wine (no cooking wine)
- 1 tbs red wine vinegar
- 1 tbs tomato paste
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1 bay leaf
- 3 1/2 cups chicken broth or something I recently started using is a 1 ounce tub of Knorr Homestyle chicken flavor stock with 3 1/2 cups of water instead of the chicken broth (no need to dissolve it, the pressure cooker will take care of that)
- 2 tbs flour dissolved in 1/2 cup water or chicken broth (instructions below)
- Heat oil in pressure cooker. Add chicken pieces a few at a time, browning well on all sides. When all chicken is browned, remove from cooker and set aside.
- Add onions and cook for one or two minutes. Add garlic and cook for an additional minute. Place chicken pieces back into the cooker. Add chicken broth or stock, white wine, vinegar, tomato paste, oregano and bay leaf. Stir to combine. There is no need however, to totally dissolve the tomato paste into the mixture. Secure lid according to manufacturer’s directions and set pressure cooker on high for 4 minutes.
- When cooker goes off, release steam and lid according to manufacturer’s instructions. Remove chicken from pressure cooker. For making the gravy, pour all at once the flour and chicken broth mixture into the cooker. Turn cooker on high and cook for 3 to 5 minutes or until gravy thickens to your liking. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve this chicken with mashed potatoes, gravy and some buttered peas with fresh cracked black pepper.
