Defrost the chicken
If the chicken is placed in the freezer, you need to remove it one night before cooking it. This way, the entire moisture will be dried out from it and there will be no issues while cooking it. In case you have forgotten to remove it from the freezer, there is another way of defrosting the chicken. Place it in the microwave oven for some time and you will get the desired results.
Wash the chicken properly
It is always important to wash the chicken properly before cooking it. There will be a lot of excess fat on the chicken, which has to be removed with a knife. Wash the chicken with warm water and then dry it out in the microwave oven.
Heat the pressure cooker
Just like you preheat the oven before a baking something, the pressure cooker needs to be heated on high flame. However, you need to add a couple of table spoons of olive oil to the cooker, so that the chicken does not burn.
Marinate the chicken
Although you can cook the chicken without marinating, it is better to add some seasonings to it in order to get a wonderful taste. Before coating the chicken with seasonings, make sure that you put some cuts on it. This way, the spices will dissolve in the chicken and will taste delicious after being cooked.
Put the chicken in pressure cooker
When the oil gets heated, place the chicken in the pressure cooker. Make sure it gets golden brown from both sides before moving onto the next step.
Cap the cooker
You can now cap the pressure cooker and allow the chicken to cook. Once the pressure reaches the highest point, lower the heat and cook for another 25 minutes to get your tender chicken.
