Instant One-Pot Meals (Countryman Press, 2017) by Laura Arnold has outrageously easy recipes, designed for the 7-in-1 electric pressure cooker, that will make homemade weeknight meals a reality.

Homemade stock can make any recipe that much richer, but stock is a hassle to make using traditional methods and requires hours of work at the stove. A pressure cooker changes all of that. Make large batches of this quick chicken stock in advance and then freeze for easy weeknight meal preparations.


  • 1 chicken, broken down into 8 pieces or roasted chicken bones
  • 1 small onion, halved
  • 1 carrot, peeled and cut into large pieces
  • 1 stalk celery, cut into large pieces
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • 2 teaspoons black peppercorns
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme 


  1. Place all the ingredients in the bowl of the pressure cooker and cover with water, about 8 to 9 cups. Secure the lid and set on Manual with high pressure for 50 minutes. Allow to naturally release.
  2. Strain the broth and allow to cool completely. Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or freeze for up to 3 months.
