Pressure Cooker Chicken and Stuffing Recipe

This dish came from one of our favorite oven meals, a dish Jamie brought to our marriage. So we decided to try it in the pressure cooker and it worked great and in far less time!! We managed to cut out a couple of steps by cooking it all at once in the pressure cooker!

Pressure-cooker-chicken-and-stuffing-finished-pic

Pressure Cooker Chicken and Stuffing

This is so easy, cut chicken into bit sized pieces, open a couple of cans of green beans, combine the 2 cans of soup and that’s pretty much it! Set the pressure cooker to poultry for 10 mins and get ready to eat it’s just that easy. One tip to this meal is to not over fill the pot with the stuffing, it can cause the cooker to not pressurize.

This is perfect for families on the go that need a quick but  hearty, healthy meal.  We are still experimenting but expect to have many other recipes soon. 

Serves 8-10

Pressure Cooker Chili Mac Recipe

Here is a hearty Chili Mac in minutes with the pressure cooker. Browning the sausage and burger takes as long as the pressure cooker does to cook the rest. Truly dinner in about 15 minutes from start to finish.

This is so easy, chop onion, mince garlic and add to beef as it browns.

Pressure Cooker White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake

There are quite a few steps to this one, but nothing to difficult. It is a little time consuming so don’t think you can throw this treat together in short order. As with all cheesecake there is a cooling, set period after cooking. The pressure cooker does speed up the baking part. You can use milk chocolate and regular Reese’s cups if you prefer. 

Dessert is the best way to finish off a great meal. At least I think so!!
