Pressure Cooker Whole Braised Chicken Recipe
Makes 4-6 servings
Ingredients: One 4-pound (1.9 kg) whole chicken, any giblets or neck removed, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, 3 tablespoons (45 ml) unsalted butter, 1½ cups (375 ml) dry white wine, 2 medium carrots, peeled and halved width·wise, 1 small yellow onion, peeled and halved, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) all-purpose flour
Instructions: Tie the chicken legs together over the large opening, using butcher twine. Wrap the butcher twine around the chicken body to hold the wings against the breast. Season chicken with salt and black pepper.
In a 6-quart (6 L) stovetop pressure cooker, melt 2 tablespoons (30 ml) butter over medium heat. Add seasoned whole chicken and brown well on all sides, turning occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Pour in dry white wine, then stir in halved carrots and yellow onion.
Close the pressure cooker and lock the lid. Set burner heat to high pressure. When the cooker reaches high pressure, reduce heat to low. Set timer to cook for 35 minutes.
Open the cooker, using the Quick Release method. Unlock and open the pot. Using tongs, transfer cooked whole chicken to a cutting board. Remove the twine. Discard cooked vegetables. Using a flatware fork, mash the remaining tablespoon (15 ml) butter with all-purpose flour in a small mixing bowl to create a thick paste.
Using a flatware spoon, skim the surface of the juices in the pot, then bring defatted sauce to a simmer over medium heat. Stir in butter paste in small bits. Remove the pot from the heat. Carve the cooked chicken and serve with tasty homemade gravy on the side.
