I have been completely obsessed with making chicken stock at home. Because once you try homemade, you can never go back.

And thanks to the Instant Pot, you can now make completely homemade chicken stock in just 45 minutes. Some recipes call for 6-8 hours of simmering on the stovetop. But nope, the Instant Pot will take care of it in less than an hour without any kind of babysitting.

You even get to use up all those lingering vegetable scraps that would typically get thrown out when you clean out your fridge once a month. Double win.

But here’s the best part: the homemade stock is so much richer and deeper in flavor, and it’s freezer-friendly for up to 3 months. When ready to use, thaw overnight in the fridge and bring to a boil for 2 minutes. From there, it can be used as a base for stews, soups and sauces.

So say good-bye to those store-bought cartons of chicken stock. You’ll never buy them again after trying this!
