Most people use their PC for quick, I forgot or throw something frozen in it meals.  I like the infused taste of the dishes I cook using a PC and pressure cooking can retain up to 95 per cent of the vitamins and nutrients.  .  As for quickly, I have been known to throw some brown rice in the PC and it was done in fifteen minutes.  One thing you have to remember the pressure cooker may not be as fast as you would wish it to be.  The PC has to come to pressure and according to what you are cooking you may want to get a running start on your meal(s).  Before the dish start to cook the PC will have to build up pressure, this is not part of the cook time.   If you can find one with a removal pot and is electric, then life just became grand.  Clean up is a breeze and you do not have to consider remodeling the kitchen.

Here is my BBQ chicken.  Depending on the size of your cooker will depend on how much you will need for the recipe.  My PC is a four-quart size cooker and I used six legs and a small bottle of sauce. I need to try this with homemade sauce. Even though the PC infused the food I still have a tendency to pierce the meat. And because you are cooking in sauce there is no need to sear the meat.  You will also learn to use less salt due to the infusion of favor.


  • Chicken (I used legs)
  • MSS
    BBQ Sauce
  • Water
  • Apple juice

Piercing the meat is optional but once this is done I use MSS for seasoning and allow the meat to marinate while I am making my sauce which is easy.  Mix all of your liquid ingredients together and pour one third of it on the bottom of the pot.  Place the seasoned chicken into the pot and pour the remaining liquid over the meat.  Make sure you fill the pot according to the directions of your PC.  Close the PC and set the time for fifteen minutes and then I can do other things.




Just a reminder, before the dish starts to cook the PC will have to build up pressure, this is not part of the cooking time.
