Under Pressure.

Aunty L recommended a pressure cooker to me.  I have bought one.  We can have risotto in six minutes and casseroles in 30 minutes.  She told me how to do a roast chicken in the pressure cooker.  These pressure cookers have a wonderful browning capacity.  I browned the chicken after stuffing it with lemon and thyme and seasoning it.
Then I added a cup of stock, more thyme and lemon and raised the chicken on a trivet.  It cooked for 30minutes.
I browned it a little again at the end of the cooking time.  It was delicious, very moist.
I love the fact that a proper meal can be thought of and prepared in such a short amount of time.
