Instant Pot Chicken Broth

Instant Pot Chicken Broth

If you’re like me and never seem to have enough time in the day, this recipe is for you. It’s simple, easy and can be made from start to finish in about 15 minutes! Plus, it’s another way to use your Instant Pot so that it doesn’t just sit there collecting dust. The best part about making broth with an Instant Pot is that there isn’t any need for tending or babysitting the pot because all of those hours of simmering are done by machine!

prep: 15 mins cook: 1 hr 40 mins additional: 4 hrs 30 mins total: 5 hrs 85 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 8 cups



2 stalks celery, leaves included, coarsely chopped

2 medium onions, roughly chopped

1 chicken carcass

1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar

5 cloves garlic, whole

1 tomato, roughly chopped

2 medium carrots, roughly chopped

½ teaspoon salt, or to taste

6 black peppercorns


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking pan with aluminum foil.

Place chicken carcass, onions, carrots, celery, and garlic on the prepared baking pan.

Bake in the preheated oven until carcass is browned, about 1 hour.

Remove pan from oven; scrape carcass and roasted vegetables into an electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Add tomato, peppercorns, cider vinegar, and salt. Fill pot 2/3 full with water; close and lock the lid. Select the Soup setting according to manufacturer’s instructions and set timer for 30 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer’s instructions, 10 to 40 minutes.

Strain broth through a layer of cheesecloth into another container. Let cool, at least 20 minutes. Cover and refrigerate until a layer of fat solidifies on the surface, 4 hours to overnight. Remove and discard the fat.
