Seriously, after having bought this electric pressure cooker, my retired life is made easier :) Seriously tastier food in a short time ! People say pressure cooked food is take the joy of cooking. But let me tell you that it is not the case. This cooker can do everything and it is not just a dump everything in and cook thing. We still have to marinade the meat or saute the veggie first before putting into the cooker. The benefits are we don't have to watch over the stove fire and less cooking time...food taste better because the aroma is deeply infused into the meat....and lastly the meat remains juicy and tender. I marinated one half chicken breast with a wing still attached with my own special sauce..ahem....actually I took whatever sauces and dry herbs available in the fridge and mix them together and marinate the chicken meat.....and of course chinese cooking wine.
this how the marinated chicken looks like after a few hours
lay a piece of parchment paper on the base
for easy cleaning and at the same time act as
collector of drippings from the chicken as it is cooking
away in the pressure pot
place the marinated chicken on the base,
set the pressure cooker to bake mode for chicken.
It took just 18 minutes for a braise and you can extend
the baking time if you want a more burnt look but I wanted
a braised chicken with a bit of gravy from the marinade sauce
this is how the braised chicken looks like
after the bake process in a pressure cooker
the meat is tender and juicy and not to forget to
mention it is finger licking good...aromatic too

If you want the chicken to be more brown and have a burnt color...you can extend the baking time.
As soon as the mode has changed to keep warm. Off the electricity and take out the chicken . Once the chicken has cooled down. Cut into bite sizes and pour the gravy from the drippings over the chicken and serve hot.
