You have to try our Perfect Instant Pot Chicken Broth! You will never go back to store bought. After a 5 days of my girls both requesting a can of chicken noodle soup in a thermos for lunch (bleech) I decided to try a homemade version. I knew that I could make homemade chicken broth pretty quickly in the Instant Pot but I had no idea how delicious it would be with a few personal tweaks. It is amazing! I start with this broth recipe and make a batch of the Best Chicken Noodle Soup Recipe once a week. I’ve even started eating it for breakfast. We are all addicted! With the help of an Electric Pressure Cooker, Perfect Instant Pot Chicken Broth from scratch doesn’t have to be an all day affair.
