I recall hours of a stockpot on my stove, waiting for the liquid to become infused with the flavor from the chicken bones and the vegetables. 

Thanks to modern pressure cookers, like the Instant Pot and Mealthy, the flavor is more intense and the gelatin more perfect, but the time it takes is one mere hour.

It’s like three hours fast-forwarded to just 40 minutes!

Chicken stock is a staple at our house, and this recipe is perfect as the Chicken Stock can be made 4 days ahead.

Cover and refrigerator, or freeze in freezer bags or ice cube trays for up to six months.

I love Chicken Stock not only for its versatility and flavor, but it’s a great way to use the entire chicken.

You can use chicken breasts to create a flavorful chicken stock, but it will yield the thinnest bodied stock–and I’d rather eat the chicken breasts because they’re delicious (and expensive).

Instead, I like to use the cheaper, collagen-rich parts that typically no one cares to eat like backs, necks, carcass, wings, and any bone scraps you have (raw or cooked).

Just a note here, chicken feet will produce the most gelatin-rich stock.
