Under Pressure

The crockpot died again!  Why does the stoneware always crack on those?  We found a pressure cooker at Costco and decided to give it a try.

What a cool toy!  I made one of my favorite recipes that we used to do in the crockpot, shredded chicken for tacos.  In the crockpot, it takes about 6 hours.  In the pressure cooker, it was done in under 30 minutes.  So cool!

Shredded Chicken

     
6     Boneless, skinless chicken thighs
1 chopped   Serrano or Jalapeno Pepper
1 chopped   Poblano Pepper
1 chopped   Yellow Onion
0.5 cup   Lime Juice
0.5 cup   Tequila
0.5 teas   Chili Powder
0.5 teas   Cayenne Pepper
1 tbls   Minced Garlic
2     Salt
1     Ground Pepper

Pressure Cooker:  Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes, then on browning for about 5 minutes to reduce liquid.  The chicken should fall apart easily with a fork.

CrockPot:  Cook on high  for 4-6 hours.  The chicken should fall apart easily with a fork.
