Food in a flash with your pressure cooker - Chicken Stew

Pressure cookers have been used by the home cook for ages – and with good reason. They can reduce cooking time by two-thirds. This tasty chicken dish will become one of your go-to favourites. If you have extra time (who really does?), browning the chicken first will add more depth of flavor. And as your trusty pressure cooker will save at least an hour’s worth of cooking time, you may well have a few minutes to spare on the preparation. It’s worth it.

Ingredients (serves 4 people)

  1. 4 large russet or white potatoes, peeled and cut into 2-4cm chunks
  2. 1 large onion, sliced
  3. 1 large red bell pepper, cut into 2cm chunks
