Step 1, Using Chicken Thighs

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, I am going to show you how to make chicken broth with a pressure cooker.

Steps

  1. 1
    The first thing we are going to need is chicken.
    For this tutorial, we will be using two pieces of chicken thighs.

    Next we are also going to need a pressure cooker.
    Our pressure cooker should be made out of Stainless Steel, although it is possible to find Aluminium pressure cookers for cheaper they can be dangerous. It is possible that some of the Aluminium may seep into the broth. We highly encourage our viewers to use a Stainless Steel pressure cooker to avoid this from happening. It is also possible to use a Slow Cooker to make chicken broth, however, we will show how to do that in a different video.

  3. 3
    Now we are going to put our two pieces of chicken thigh inside of our pressure cooker.
    We do not need to add any oil to our pressure cooker. If the chicken starts to stick to the bottom of our pan that is okay because the broth will de-glaze the bottom as it is cooking. The chicken itself will also produce some natural oils.

  4. 4
    Once we have our two pieces of the chicken inside of the pressure cooker, we will put our pressure cooker onto the stove and brown the bottom and the top of our chicken.
    This will make our broth more flavorful. In this tutorial, we are using chicken thighs and keeping the meat on the chicken, however, a lot of people also just use bones to make their broth. Some people choose to roast an entire chicken and then they will eat the chicken, keeping the bones so that they can make broth with them later.

  5. 5
    Once we have browned our chicken, which should take about 5 minutes on each side, the next thing we are going to do is add the water into the pot.
    Now, our water should be filtered water unless we trust our cities tap water to not be contaminated.

  6. 6
    We are going to fill the pressure cooker up to about three-quarters of the way full.
    This really depends on how much broth we want to make. In our case, we are planning to keep a lot of broth in our freezer so that we can use it whenever we need to without having to wait to make it. Broth can be used a lot in various recipes, it is also useful to have on hand if we come down with a cold.

  7. 7
    The next step that we are going to take is adding some Apple Cider Vinegar to the broth.
    This step is important because if we are using bones, which we will now have exposed bones from cooking the meat, the Apple Cider Vinegar helps to draw all the minerals out of the bones.

    We are now going to add 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar into our pot and then cover our pressure cooker.

Step 2, Adding Vegetables and Spices

Now after we have let our broth soak for about 15 minutes we can take the lid off of our pressure cooker. The next thing we are going to do is add in our vegetables and our spices. The vegetables and spices that we are going to add are completely up to the maker. As has been previously mentioned, the broth we are making is going to have a lot of flavor because it will be used on its own from time to time.

Steps

  1. 1
    First we are going to add a small piece of ginger.

  2. 2
    Then we will add a hand full of roughly cut celery.
    We do not have to worry about how our vegetables are cut because we are going to drain them out of the broth in the end.

  3. 3
    Next we are going to add a handful of small carrots.
    We may also choose to add one large carrot instead.

  4. 4
    Then we are going to add some yellow and green onions.
    We will be adding in about one-half of a yellow onion, and one or two green onions. While the carrots, celery, and onion are important ingredients, the ginger and green onion are optional. These can be added for flavor but are not necessary.

  5. 5
    Next we are going to add our spices, starting with adding two Bay Leaves into our pot.
    This is another important ingredient that needs to be added.

  6. 6
    We are also going to add about a teaspoon each of pepper and salt into our broth.

  7. 7
    From here we can add any other spices that we'd like.
    In our case, we like Italian spices, so we are going to add a little bit of Oregano, Basil, Thyme, and Caraway. Caraway can easily overpower our other ingredients, so be careful not to add too much. Similar to this, we do not want too much of one vegetable because the taste of the vegetable will overpower the rest of the broth. If we would prefer not to add these spices now, we can add them after we have finished the broth before we use it.

    Once we are done adding all of our ingredients, we are going to stir them all together.

    Next we are going to put our lid onto our pressure cooker and lock it into place.

    We are then going to turn our stove top onto high.

    We are going to wait for the pressure cooker to start releasing pressure, once that happens we are going to lower the heat and then continue to let it cook.
    If we were using a slow cooker we would have to let it cook for 24 hours or more to get the good nutrients and minerals from the chicken or the bones. A pressure cooker allows us to reduce that time. Some people say that they prefer the taste of slow cooker broth to pressure cooker broth while some people don't notice the difference. It is completely up to the maker which method they prefer to use.

Step 3, Finalizing and Storing

Once the pressure cooker has been on for about 2 hours we are going to turn off the heat.

Steps

  1. 1
    Then we will wait for the pressure to all be released from the inside of the pressure cooker.
    Do not open it before the pressure is released. On our pressure cooker, there is a red button that indicates when the pressure has fully been released. This button will slowly go down and when it is completely flat we will know all the pressure has been released.

  2. 2
    Once the pressure indicator has gone down completely we can open up the lid.
    Our broth is almost done, now we just need to strain out the other ingredients.

  3. 3
    What we are going to need to do now is get rid of all the vegetables and meat from the broth.
    We can do this by placing a small colander or sieve on top and scooping the ingredients into it. There will also be chicken inside of our broth we need to remove, we can eat it if we so choose. However, all the flavor will have been removed and absorbed into the broth.

  4. 4
    Now that we have finished making the broth we can store it in some containers such as the one shown, and keep it in our fridge or our freezer for later use.
    Whenever we need a cup of broth for a recipe we can easily take out one of our pre-made containers.

    This broth will last about two months in the freezer, and about a week in the fridge.
