Add all ingredients to the instant pot in the order listed and lock on the lid.
Cook on high pressure for 2 hours.
Allow pot to run on natural pressure release for 30 minutes, then pop open that lid and take in the amazing aroma of the delicious broth you just cooked!
Remove the carrots, onions and anything else you wish to keep to use in a soup and set aside.
Strain the rest through a sieve into a large bowl, then transfer into jars or containers and store in fridge or freezer.

Instant Pot Chicken Bone Broth
- 1 roasted chicken carcass (great way to use up rotisserie chicken leftovers and bones)
- 2 carrots washed, peeled, quartered
- 2 onions quartered
- 2 medium potatoes peeled, halved
- a few cloves of garlic peeled, smashed
- a handful of greens such as celery stalks + leaves, spinach, kale, chard, collard greens (anything you have on hand)
- 1 thunmb sized piece of fresh ginger peeled
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary (or 1/2 tsp dried)
- a few sprigs fresh parsley
- 2-3 bay leaves
- 1/2 tsp ground turmeric
- 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar (the good stuff with the mother is best)
- 1 tbsp soy sauce (optional but adds flavour)
- 8 cups water (or fill pot to just under the max line)
- Add all ingredients, in order into the instant pot.Lock on the lid, and turn steam valve to sealing.Choose pressure cook and set timer to 120 minutes (2 hours).
- When time is up, let pot and timer proceed with natural release for 30 minutes.Open lid, and take in the delicious aroma of your broth...yummmm!Do a taste test and adjust flavour with salt and pepper to your liking, I used the bones of a store bought rotisserie chicken which had plenty of flavour and seasonings already so my broth didn't need any extra.
- At this point, you will want to remove the carrots, onions, celery and any good chicken meat that is in the broth, and reserve for using in a chicken noodle soup (which of course you can also make using this broth).
- Place a fine meshed sieve (or cheesecloth) over a large bowl and pour the broth over it, then ladle the clear broth into a couple of large mason jars (or smaller ones, if you want to do ready to go portions).This broth will last at least a week in the fridge, or many months in the freezer.To use simply pour yourself a cupful, heat it up and sip away
