Pressure Cooker French Onion Soup Chicken Thighs

Beef broth-based chicken-vegetable soup cooked in an electric pressure cooker. Very delicious!

Ingredients: 1 tablespoon (15 ml) unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) olive oil, 8 bone-in and skin-on chicken thighs, trimmed, 3 large yellow onions, peeled, halved and sliced into thin half-moons, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) sugar, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) salt, 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry white wine, 1/2 cup (125 ml) beef broth, 2 teaspoons (5 ml) stemmed fresh thyme leaves, 1/2 teaspoon (3 ml) freshly ground black pepper, 1 cup (250 ml) finely grated Gruyère cheese

Instructions: In a 6-quart (6 L) electric pressure cooker, turned over the browning functions, melt the butter in the oil. Add half of the chicken thighs and brown well, turning once, for about 6 minutes. Remove browned chicken from the pressure cooker and transfer to a large bowl. Repeat with the remainder of the thighs.

Add the onions, sugar, and salt. Cook, stirring, until onions are golden and sweet, for about 12 minutes. Pour in dry white wine, scraping up all the browned bits on the bottom of the pot. Stir in beef broth, fresh thyme, and black pepper. Return browned chicken with any accumulated juices to pressure cooker. Stir well.

Set the electric pressure cooker to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook at high pressure for 18 minutes. Unlock and open pressure cooker. Sprinkle grated cheese evenly over the top. Cover loosely and set aside for 5 minutes or until cheese melted.

Remove chicken thighs from the pot and transfer into soup bowls. Ladle onion soup over and serve.
