“A wonderful meal for a cold night. (I hate cooked carrots. Cooking them this way makes them fall apart & become part of the broth. You still get the nutrients without actually biting into them.)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Sprinkle a small amount of salt, pepper, cumin, & paprika on the chicken. (About 1/2 teaspoon of each spice for all 3 pieces of chicken).
  2. Pour 1 1/2 cups of water into the pressure cooker. Add the olive oil, tomato paste, garlic, & the rest of the spices into the pot. (Don't forget 1/2 teaspoon of salt, pepper, cumin, & paprika).
  3. Note: If you are using a regular pot instead of a pressure cooker the cook times are tripled & you may need more water.
  4. Place the chicken into the cooker & add the onions & carrot. Cook for 10 minutes, after it begins to hiss. (Regular pot, roughly 30 minutes).
  5. Remove chicken & place on a plate. Put the potatoes & 1 1/2 cups of water into the pot & cook for 4 more minutes, after it begins to hiss. (Regular pot, 12-15 minutes).
  6. While the potatoes are cooking break the chicken into small pieces (disregard the bones).
  7. Once the potatoes are done add the chicken back into the pan & stir. Pour into a serving dish & serve with warm bread.
