Nothing beats the flavor of homemade chicken broth in soup. It's rich and concentrated and it's so much faster to make in the instant pot. When you make the broth yourself, it becomes inexpensive real quick than if you were to buy some from the store. And you can adjust the flavor of the broth by adding in any kind of vegetables, herbs, and spices you have on hand!
In a lot of cases, broth is made mostly of chicken meat whereas chicken stock is made with both chicken meat and chicken bones. Chicken Stock has a much richer and a more concentrated flavor because of the bones and the collagen. So technically, this recipe is chicken stock, since I usually do use some sort of bones with meat when I make homemade "broth".
Absolutely! It's so flavorful and so easy to make with this instant pot recipe! You can easily make a big batch of chicken broth in less than an hour. And you can use this for many things besides soup, such as, strew, sauces, and many main course dishes too! It adds that homey in depth flavor to so many recipes. Making it yourself because inexpensive really fast:)
Store the chicken broth in the refrigerator for up to a week if you've already meal prepped for the whole week! Or you can put them in your freezer for up to 6 months.
I really like using glass mason jars for storing the broth in the refrigerator, but if you prefer to store them in your freezer for future recipes, I recommend using plastic jars with a twist top. There's no chance of the containers accidentally breaking like the glass will. And they won't spill or pop off. Make sure to leave some room at the top, since the broth will expand as it freezes.
