[INSTANT POT / Pressure Cook RECIPE] Easy Homemade Chicken Broth

INSTANT POT RECIPE, Become A Ramen Master At Home, Easy Homemade Chicken Broth Food & Recipes

I am not bragging about “homemade chicken broth”, but, I don’t have trouble with the shortage of chicken broth because I keep making the bone broth after roast chicken (turkey) dinner.

Also, from the point of the Japanese culture “Mottainai”, we often make homemade broth from the remains. (we often hesitate to throw bones and shells without making broth.)

So, it is not so hard to make homemade chicken broth to me, but I am here if can give you a hint on how to make homemade chicken broth quickly.

You can use store-bought chicken broth anytime, indeed, it’s handy and reasonable, but, homemade chicken broth is much healthier (sodium volume) and comfy.

This recipe is based on the traditional Japanese (Asian?) flavor, but, you can change the flavor while changing the vegetables and herbs.

All you need is a whole chicken.

No, no. All you need is “bone-in” chicken.

When using chicken legs or drumsticks, you can easily and quickly get the broth rather than a whole chicken, giblets, and neck.

How To Change This Chicken Stock Flavor To Not-Asian

Switch vegetables to those flavorful vegetables.

  • An onion (peeled or with skin)
  • Celery
  • Carrots
  • Garlic (peeled or with skin)
  • herbs or bay leaves
