This Quick Bone Broth with Rotisserie Chicken (Instant Pot) is made with a carcass of a chicken, carrots, celery, and herbs in an Instant Pot.


  • Carcass and bones of 1 chicken (start with rotisserie chicken)
  • 10 cups filtered water
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup chopped parsley and thyme
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons whole peppercorns
  • Generous amount of salt


  1. In an instant pot, add the chicken bones, carrots, celery stalks, apple cider vinegar, parsley, bay leaves, peppercorns and season generously with salt.
  2. Pour in the water.
  3. Pressure cook on high for 3 hours at least, or longer. The longer it cooks, the better it will taste and the more nutritious it will be.


  • Use High-Quality Bones: The quality of the bones you use will directly affect the flavor and nutrient content of your bone broth. Look for bones from grass-fed, pasture-raised animals whenever possible.
  • Use Plenty of Vegetables: Adding onions, carrots, celery, and other vegetables to your bone broth will give it extra flavor and nutrition.
  • Add Herbs and Spices: Adding herbs and spices such as thyme, rosemary, parsley, and bay leaves can enhance the flavor of your bone broth.
  • Don't Overfill the Pressure Cooker: Make sure you don't fill the pressure cooker more than two-thirds full to prevent the broth from boiling over during cooking.
  • Use Enough Water: Make sure to use enough water to cover the bones and vegetables. You can add more water if needed during cooking.
  • Skim off Any Foam: During the initial stages of cooking, foam may rise to the surface of the broth. Skim this off with a spoon to keep the broth clear.
  • Let the Pressure Release Naturally: After cooking, allow the pressure to release naturally instead of using the quick-release method. This will help prevent the broth from splattering out of the pressure cooker.
  • Strain the Broth: Once the broth is cooked, strain it through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth to remove any bones, vegetables, and impurities.
  • Let the Broth Cool: Let the broth cool to room temperature before transferring it to storage containers. This will prevent the containers from cracking or breaking due to rapid temperature changes.
  • Store Properly: Store the bone broth in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days or in the freezer for up to 3-4 months. Be sure to label the containers with the date and type of broth.
