How To Cook Chicken Meat in Pressure Cooker

Instant Pots produce fast, consistent results for a wide range of recipes and cooking styles, and you’ll wonder how you ever got along without them. Short cooking times and excellent results are achieved by using pressure cooking at various temperatures and settings.

Basic instructions for cooking meat in a pressure cooker 

  1. Pour the appropriate amount of liquid over the meat in the cooker. Always check your recipe for the amount of liquid required for cooking. The general rule is that you should use at least one cup of liquid and not use more than half of your cooker.
  2.  Cover your cooker and make sure it is securely fastened. Lock the lid and cook on medium-high heat until pressure builds up.
  3. Once pressure is built up inside the cooker, most pressure cookers will whistle. Most modern cookers have a pressure indicator that indicates that there is already pressure inside the cooker.
  4.  Reduce the heat when pressure builds up in the cooker and set your timer for your pressure cooker.
  5. Cook the meat until it’s done, then release the pressure.
