Pressure cooker braised porcini chicken. Chicken thighs with vegetables cooked in a pressure cooker. Very delicious and easy chicken recipe! I used bone-in and skin-on chicken thighs to make this dish. Serve with cooked polenta.

What are the health benefits of pressure cooker braised porcini chicken?

Braised chicken dishes are a great way to make food more healthy. Chicken is low in fat and high in protein, which makes it a great option for people on weight loss diets.

Pressure cooking makes the dish low-fat and high in nutrients. It also has a longer shelf life as with pressure cooking, proteins retain their texture and nutrients.

Pressure cooking braises chicken with aromatics such as onions, garlic, carrots, celery, parsley, and thyme, which creates an earthy flavor that is perfect for this dish!

What are some other ways to prepare a pressure cooker braised porcini chicken?

There are so many ways to cook the pressure cooker braised porcini chicken, but we will show you two very different methods.

Method 1:

Leave the chicken in the pressure cooker with all of the ingredients and cook on high for 30 minutes. Once 30 minutes is up, take everything out of the pot and let it sit for 5 minutes with the lid on. Remove from heat and serve.

Method 2:

Place all of your ingredients into a saucepan, including olive oil and butter, set to medium-high heat. When everything starts to brown, add in salt and pepper as well as thyme leaves. Cook this for about 8-10 minutes then add in your chicken pieces and cook for about 3-4 minutes more before removing from heat.
