I see it has been a bit since my last blog. Life gets busy quick as most of you know. How ever I have been seeing on FB and on Pinterest all these really cool things you can make quickly in a pressure cooker. Then last Sunday we were watching tv and an infomercial comes on with the pressure cooker xl and all the cool things you can make with it. Got the Curiosity up a lot and while out shopping this week I picked one up.
Read the manual (yes I do do that), and went to the grocery to pick up ingredients for my first attempt in joining the pressure cooker family.
Washed the pressure cooker before we started, figured the good Lord only knows how long it’s been in the box and all that :0)
So we are having chicken tenders with carrots, celery, garlic and herbs! I’m also making some dressing on the side to add to the dish.
4 stakes of celery, Half of a yellow onion, 4 red potatoes, clove of garlic, a generous portion of carrots, 1 1/2 pounds of chicken tenders and a cup of chicken broth. Threw in some Italian seasoning, rosemary salt, little garlic salt and ground pepper. Just enough rosemary slot and pepper to cover the tenders.
Cut it up and threw it in the pot….put the lid on and hit the chicken button…fingers crossed…so it took 10 minutes for it to come up to pressure, but things started smelling good. My pot says 15 minutes..so we wait…
After the 15 minutes I let the pressure out a little at a time like 6 times then released it all the way. Took the lid off to see if everything was done…
This was the most tender chicken I have ever eaten! I’m in love with a pressure cooker!
I think turkey breast is next on the cooking front!
I use my crock pot more, but I love my pressure cooker, too! So fast and such tender meat!
I was amazed! I had no idea how quick dinner could be done and I didn’t have to stand there and flip it or watch it! Send me any recipes that you all really like please firstname.lastname@example.org
