Pressure Cooker Chicken Broth

Instant Pot Chicken Broth is like liquid gold. There's no better way to make homemade chicken stock than in the pressure cooker. Instead of using your slow cooker or stove top for hours and hours, pressure cooking homemade bone broth extracts every bit of healthy goodness from your meat and vegetables.

  • 1 pound raw chicken pieces various cuts work, must have bones and skin 
  • 1/2 onion quartered
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 1 carrot chopped
  • 1 whole cloves garlic
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon whole peppercorns
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt


  • Add all ingredients to pressure cooker. Fill with water and cover with lid. Set to high pressure and cook for 120 minutes.  After the cooking cycle completes, allow the pressure cooker to release pressure naturally. This takes about 30 minutes.
  • Strain broth into a bowl. You can pick some of the meat out and add it to the broth if you wish. Use within 3 days or freeze in an air tight container for future use.


Makes about 2 quarts.
Remains of cooked whole chicken including any meat, skin, bones work as well. If you are using the carcass from a roasted chicken, consider supplementing with a few pieces of raw chicken, if possible. The raw chicken will create a richer broth. You can use turkey as well.
