Susan's notes for this recipe:
My Husband, Mom and friends, love this chicken I make in my electric pressure cooker! All the flavors mingle and you're left with a treat for your taste buds!

To me, the hero in this recipe is the cheesecloth! Read on and see!

Directions

1
Make your stuffing first. Put stuffing in a bowl and add 1 ½ cups warm water, stir it around till moist then set aside.
2
Wash potatoes, chop carrots and onions. I leave the potatoes whole with the skins on. Set aside

Wash chicken inside and out (makes sure to take out any giblets that might be packaged up inside.) Pat dry. Set aside.

Take out your cheesecloth and cut enough off to wrap the chicken “twice” leaving the ends long enough to tie a knot on the top. This serves two purposes . . . It’s so much easier to lift the knot out of the cooker, the chicken doesn't fall apart in the pot, and all the bones and stuffing stay put! I also do this with chicken noodle soup.
3
Once you have opened and cut the cheesecloth, unwrap it on a cutting board or counter. (It will be very thin, that’s why I double it.) Place the chicken on one end of the cheesecloth and stuff the chicken. Once it’s stuffed, roll the chicken, with the cheesecloth, to the other end of the cheesecloth. There should be enough cheesecloth on the ends to tie in a knot. Set aside
4
Add the chicken broth to the pot, add the crushed garlic and onion, place the potatoes on the bottom of the pot . . . place your stuffed chicken on top of the potatoes. That will serve as a rack for the chicken.

Add the chopped carrots, salt and pepper. If you think you want more broth, add it now.
5
Close the lid and set timer for 50 minutes. (It’s stuffed so you have to be careful.) When done, let pressure release naturally.
6
Open lid and take out the chicken holding the knot and place on a platter or plate. (Careful knot will be hot) Grab with the hot pad or tongs. Cut off the cheesecloth and check to see if it's done. If for some reason it’s not fully cooked, place back in cooker, close lid and leave on warm for another 5 minutes or so.

Voila! One pot meal that’s tender and juicy!

Very nice touch with the cheesecloth! I have a smoker pressure cook sometime I smoke other time just pressure cook the chicken is ten times better. Did you add paprika too?

I add paprika to my "Chicken Paprika" not the stuffed chicken, it sounds good though! Maybe I will now that you mention it! Did you figure out my instructions with the cheesecloth? I'm not a very good teacher so I hope it made a little sense! I'll have to make a video!

I use the cheesecloth when I make chicken noodle soup too, I don't get bones in my soup!

Thanks David!

I got mine on HSN, it's an Elite 8 quart but Wolfgang Puck has one that's really good! I just made my chicken paprika and it came out delicious.
