Make Chicken Broth In 30 Minutes Using A Pressure Cooker

A pressure cooker is an amazing appliance with many uses, but making hearty soup and savoury broth in minutes is one we hadn’t initially anticipated. Thankfully, this video from Bon Appetit shows you exactly how to do it, and in less than a half-hour to boot.

The video tells the tale, but to put it simply, toss some onion, carrots, ginger, garlic, herbs, peppercorns and, of course, chicken (the video uses chicken wings) into the pressure cooker. Fill with water and cook on high pressure for 30 minutes. Strain out the big stuff, give it a second straining to catch anything smaller, and you’re done. You can even finish off that chicken by shredding it up to use in a soup that uses the broth, or in another dish (just don’t toss it out!)

Simple and easy — and quick enough you can even do it sometime you’re not feeling well and could use a little hot broth to soothe your stomach. Plus, chicken broth is the savoury, flavourful basis for a ton of recipes, from stew to better steamed rice, so it’s always good have in a pinch. Homemade is always better than canned, so it’s time to learn to make your own. Hit the link below to check out the video at YouTube.
