Cook with Ayden: Making Your Own Chicken Essence
I used to use the fire stove to make chicken essence for the boys. You can read my tutorial on how to make chicken essence the traditional way.
Today, Little Chef Ayden will be sharing how to make chicken essence using the pressure cooker. It is much easier and faster this way. We use our Philips All In One Cooker so we have the option of either making it really fast using the pressure cooker function or boiling it slow and steady using the slow cook function. We choose to do it fast this time.
Whole chicken or cut chicken parts (fat and skin removed)
I usually use black chicken to make chicken essence but today we use antibiotic-free chicken as Little Ayden asked too many questions regarding the black chicken until I don’t know how to answer him. I shall get back to him on that a little later
Remove all visible fats and skin. Use a pestle to crush the chicken bones. The more you crush, the more essence you’ll get.
Place a small bowl (upside down) inside a bigger bowl. Arrange the crushed chicken on it. Cover with a lid.
Place a cloth in the pressure cooker pot. Put the bowl of chicken in it.
Pour water into the pot (not the bowl) making sure the water level reach at least half the height of the bowl.
Put the lid on and select MANUAL. Set the cooking time to 59 minutes (or more if you wish).
Once done, remove the chicken. The essence is collected underneath the small bowl.
We did not add any seasoning at all yet the boys drank it up like a champion. It is tasty as no water is added. What we get is purely essence from the chicken.
