Use an Instant Pot to make Chicken Stock in only an hour! Full of nutrients and minerals, homemade chicken stock and broth is perfect for making soups and more. A great way to use up leftover bones and veggie scraps.

Searing The Chicken
Set the Instant Pot to 'sear' and brown the chicken carcass. Chop the vegetables as the chicken bones brown.
Add the oil or clarified butter, then sear the chicken carcass and bones for 5 minutes on each side until golden brown.
Toss in the chopped vegetables, garlic, and peppercorns followed by the water.
Pressure Cooking The Chicken Stock
Turn off the Instant Pot, and securely close and latch the lid. Ensure the steam valve is set to 'sealed'.
Select 'manual' program and adjust the cooking time to 40 minutes. Press manual again to start the program. The Instant Pot will take about 10 to 15 minutes to heat up before fully pressurized and the cooking timer commences.
Once the 60 minutes are over and the Instant Pot beeps signaling the program is finished, unplug the pot and let it cool to de-pressurize. Do not use the quick release vent or attempt to open the lid before the pressure gauge is fully lowered.
Using a dry kitchen towel 'vent' the lid by turning the steam valve to 'venting' to release any excess steam.
Open the Lid and ladle out the chicken stock. Use a strainer to remove and small particles.
Cool and store/freeze the chicken stock for later use.
Note: This recipe calls for 5 liters of water. When making stock in the Instant Pot do not exceed the Max Pressure Cooker Fill Line or 2/3's full. In the 8 quart model I have, this lets me add 5 liters of liquid. Simply use as much water as is appropriate for your model size.Do not use the quick release vent or attempt to open the lid before the pressure gauge is fully lowered.
