Among all pressure cooker recipes, one simple, healthy one everyone must know is the chicken soup. Used to rid flu and a great body warmer, the benefits of chicken soup is only made better using a pressure cooker.
First, gather the following ingredients. For the main flavoring, get a pack of chicken breasts that has a lot of skin. The additional flavorings can be made using the following vegetables: carrots, parsnips, shallots, and garlic. To make the soup more fragrant, also include herbs like dill and parsley, as well as salt and pepper.
The first thing you will want to do is to cook the chicken. In order to do this, put the chicken into the cooker’s pot and fill enough water until its pressure is increased to its maximum. Then, heat the pot on medium-high until the indicator indicates that enough pressure is built. You can then set the heat to low, and leave it be for 20 minutes.
After the 20 minutes, turn the heat off and leave the pressure cooker on its own until the pressure drops down low enough for the pot to open on its own. An alternative is to run cold water over the lid so that the cooling process will be faster. When the soup has become slightly cooler to deal with, pick up the chicken breasts with a strainer. Remove the bones, and then put the meat back into the pot of soup.
As the taste of the soup will not be as fragrant without any herbs, add some water, the remaining ingredients listed earlier according to your liking. This way, you will not need to add in any artificial flavorings, as the flavors would have come from these ingredients instead. Make sure your ingredients are fresh in order to get the best of its nutrients. Cook these for an additional 5 minutes, and let it cool naturally.
