Directions

  1. Heat olive oil in a pressure cooker over medium heat. Stir in red bell pepper and onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until golden.
  2. Dissolve tomato paste in 1 cup water and pour it into the pressure cooker. Place chicken thighs and drumsticks in the pan so the pieces are evenly spaced. Add enough water so that the chicken is nearly covered.
  3. Seal the pressure cooker and bring up to pressure over high heat. Reduce the heat to low, maintaining full pressure; cook for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and allow the pressure to drop naturally, about 20 minutes. Season chicken with salt to taste.

This was sooo good. I'm Cuban American, I forgot all about this recipe (DUH). It brought back Tons of memories of my Mom in the Kitchen. I'm extremely afraid of a presure cooker ( Boom!! comes to mind) but I used a Dutch oven, over the stove. I made it how my Mom showed me. I made it with Chicken thighs and legs and browned them in the pan a little but not cooked through. My Mom would add Green olives to the Fricasse. I also used Green bell pepper, Onions, Lots of Garlic and a Bay leaf with some Vino Seco, (dry white wine) tomato sauce with a little water. Don't forget to scrape the bottom of the pan for the chicken drippings. Took about 35 to 45 minutes and the chicken was coming off the bone. Mmmmm, so good my family loved it. I'll be making this again. Con platanitos fritos.

I have not tried this recipe, although it sounds great! I'm commenting because of the picture that is used. One should NEVER fill their pressure cooker that full as it could clog and present a SERIOUS safety issue. The picture should be replaced or removed.

Turned out good - I think I added too much water - my sauce was pretty watery.
