Pressure Cooker Easy Chicken Vegetable Stew Recipe
Boneless and skinless chicken breasts with vegetables and herbs cooked in a pressure cooker.
Makes 2-4 servings
Ingredients: 1 double boneless and skinless chicken breast, sliced, 4 carrots, peeled and chunked, 4 potatoes, peeled and cubed, 2 celery stalks, chopped, 1 yellow onion, peeled and sliced, 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed, 2 cups (500 ml) chicken stock, 4 oz (120 g) all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon (5 ml) chopped fresh parsley, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) dried thyme, salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Instructions: In a small mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, salt, and black pepper. Stir well. Coat sliced chicken with an all-purpose mixture.
In a pressure cooker, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Working in batches, add the seasoned chicken and cook until golden brown. Transfer cooked chicken pieces to a large bowl. Repeat with remaining chicken. Return cooked chicken pieces to the pressure cooker along with onion and garlic and cook for a further 3 minutes.
Pour in chicken stock, then increase heat to high and bring to a boil, stirring to scrape off any brown bits at the base of the pan.
Cover the pressure cooker and lock the lid. Set the burner heat to high pressure. When the cooker reaches high pressure, reduce heat to low. Set a timer to cook for 20 minutes.
Open the pressure cooker, using the Quick Release method. Stir well before serving. Serve chicken vegetable stew with chopped fresh parsley. The recipe is also great for chicken thighs, especially if you prefer to have more flavor.
