I made Instant Pot Chicken Feet Broth in under 3 hours!
I went to make some Ginger Squash Soup because I had an abundance of cooked squash, but I realized I did not have any chicken broth left… Instant Pot to the rescue!
I usually brew chicken broth overnight in the crock pot after I make a roasted chicken. I also use my crock pot for Chicken Feet Broth overnight as well.
Well I didn’t have time for that and as much as I prefer to slow cook broth in the crock pot, I decided to use my Instant Pot for broth and I couldn’t be happier with the results!
It made a gelatinous, nutritious broth in under 3 hours and I was able to go forward with my plans to use up all the squash I had in the refrigerator that day.
A win win situation.
It is so easy to throw frozen chicken feet packs and frozen bones or backs that you may have saved in the freezer, into the Instant Pot.
It will take longer to get up to temperature when using frozen bones, but still, under 3 hours is amazing for the quality of this broth.
I get my packs of 4 feet and 2 heads from my farmer and they are already blanched and peeled. If you don’t have blanched and peeled chicken feet, you can use the Instant Pot to boil water (saute feature), throw the feet in for 30 seconds, remove them and peel off the skin.
Use a paring knife to cut away any funky looking patches. You can do this in batches. Then cancel the saute function, pour out the water and follow the directions below.Print
