Instant Pot Chicken Stew

Whole30, Dairy-Free and Gluten-Free

If you know anything about me by now, it’s probably that I have a real love affair going with homemade chicken broth. For some reason, I find it almost drinkable with a straw. Maybe that had something to do with me going head-over-heals for the invention of the Instant Pot? Homemade chicken broth has never been easier. And let me tell you… there’s nothing else like it that will elevate your soup recipes to the next level! So I often create recipes like this Instant Pot chicken stew that use a whole chicken. The best part about starting with a whole chicken is that there’s no broth to prepare before hand; as the chicken cooks, it produces incredibly flavorful homemade broth. All the possible flavor, cheapest possible price, and nothing goes to waste!

      It can vary based on size of chicken, onion, etc, but it should be between 3/4 cup to 1 cup.
