Instant Pot Chicken Bone Broth

In the winter when the rain or snow is coming down and I am sitting by the fire sipping my savory bone broth, I feel so warm and cozy inside. Bone broth has really become a staple in our house for cooking or sipping.

Not only does bone broth taste good but the health benefits make it a super food in my book!

  • Heals a leaky gut
  • Helps reduce liver detox
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Fights infections
  • High in protein
  • And so much more

I had always assumed that making bone broth was time consuming and out of my league. Thankfully my mother in law gave me a good nudge to try it on my own. Come to find out it’s easy and a great way to use up a chicken carcass.

The ingredient list is small but the benefits are large.

  • Carcass of 1 Organic Chicken or more if you have it – Just adjust
  • 1 onion
  • 2 ribs of celery – I actually save scraps in freezer just for bone broth
  • 2 carrots
  • Head of garlic or 8-9 cloves
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water

When you think about bone broth, I want you to think EASY. You basically throw all of the ingredients into the instant pot and hit start.

In 2.5 hours you will have this beautiful and nourishing broth that you can feel good about eating and cooking with. Your house will smell amazing too! I hope after reading this, I have given you the confidence to try on your own.

  • Instant Pot


  • 1 Whole Chicken Carcass and Bones My carcass ended up weighing 1.5lbs
  • 1 Whole Onion Cut into quarters
  • 2 Stalks Celery I always have frozen scraps to toss in
  • 1 Head Garlic
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Water Amount depends on your pot and the size


  • Add all of your ingredients to you instant pot. You can season now if you want, I like to wait and season when I use it.
  • Fill with water to cover bones and veggies – DO NOT FILL higher than 1" below max fill line
  • Secure the lid and make sure the pressure valve is down
  • Click Manual and set to High Pressure for 2 hours
  • After 2 hours, let the broth sit for another 30 minutes for the pressure to release gradually.
  • I let the broth cool before getting a large bowl and putting a colander in the bottom. Then dump the entire contents of your pot into the colander. Lift the colander out of the bowl and there you will see your labor of love.
  • I like to freeze my bone broth in mason jars. Be sure to leave at least 1/2" or more at the top of the jars when filling or they could crack in the freezer.
