    I don't know specific recipes, but places that serve a high quantity of fried chicken typically use a pressure cooker. After it is cooked, it's then breaded and fried for a short time.

    I know people do it, but it's not a good idea to make fried chicken in a pressure cooker. There are pressure fryers you can use. I'm not sure what the difference is, but I've always seen warnings against pressure frying in a regular pressure cooker.

    I picked up a brand new, in the box electronic pressure cooker at a really good price a few years ago on eBay.

    OK, before everyone goes completely away from the recipe. I did not say Deep Fried Chicken, but rather fried chicken. The frying is not done under pressure.

    The recipe I use comes from an older Pressure Cooker book.
    Ingredients:

    3-4 lb fryer
    ¼ cup Flour
    1 ½ tsp salt
    Dash of pepper
    1 teaspoon paprika
    ¼ cup fat
    1 small onion
    1 cup water


    1. Cut chicken into individual services. Mix Flour, Salt, Pepper and Paprika and dredge chicken.

    2. Brown in hot fat in pressure pan. Add onion and water. Place chicken on rack.
    3. Cover, set control at 10 and cook 18 to 25 minutes (depending on age of chicken) after control jiggles.
    4. Reduce pressure normally for 5 minutes, then place under faucet.
    5. Place chicken under broiler for a few minutes to crisp. Serve with gravy.

    Old Chickens require 30-40 minutes of cooking time.

    I cheat and use a pre-seasoned flour that I really like and skip the salt, pepper, and paprika.

    The onion is important and the chicken itself taste nowhere near as good without it. Make sure to line the broiler pan with something or the chicken will stick.

    I got a Presto electric pressure cooker last year, and it came with a small cookbook combined with the instruction booklet.

    I have an old OOP cookbook called Pressure Cooking is Pleasure Cooking which I think is pretty good. It has more home-cooking style recipes, not so much the gourmet-type meals.

    I've been drooling over those neat electric pressure cookers for a year now, but can't justify the price since I have an almost brand new stovetop one that I've only used 5 times and works great. This thread inspired me to use it yesterday-- I made chicken and gravy for Sunday dinner in it yesterday. Yum!
