Happyme, part of the problem may be that the drumstick is tougher compared to the rest of the chicken. That's why I rarely prepare it - for successful drumsticks, low and slow is the way to cook them. I wonder if a shortened cooking time, plus natural release, would help.
That recipe you made sounds delicious! It would be foolproof with chicken thighs, I bet.
ETA: Weird, but a few minutes ago I popped onto Facebook, and the very first post I saw was on chicken in the pressure cooker! Kenji Alt-Lopez recommends that chicken legs are cooked 15-20 minutes for a tender texture. http://www.seriouseats.com/2015/01/how-to-make-30-minute-pressure-cooker-pho-ga-vietnamese-chicken-noodle-soup.html
15 - 10 mimutes?? I sure as heck didn't cook them that long. I might try it again, though. I love the drumsticks. Thanks for the tips! The pressure cooker is awesome but there most definitely is a learning curve to the whole thing..kinda fun!
I made another yummy lentil soup in the IP! I made it up based on what we had on hand.
I sautéed a large, chopped onion and several cloves of diced garlic in about 1/2 T of coconut oil. Then, I added two chopped chicken breasts (I used my kitchen shears to just chop them up over the pot), diced red bell pepper, and cubed Japanese sweet potato. I added a large dose of Mrs. Dash, three large sprigs worth of fresh rosemary (stems removed), and salt and sautéed for a few more minutes. Then, I turned off the sauté feature and added six cups broth (I used "broth" I had left from making black beans), one pound of red lentils, one can of diced tomatoes, and one (500g) bag of frozen komatsuna (Japanese spinach). I cooked it on HP for seven minutes, allowed a NPR for ten to fifteen minutes, and then released the rest myself (QR). We served it with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top and toast on the side. SO GOOD! We have lots of leftovers to enjoy, too. My pot was filled all the way up to max line, so be sure to plan for extra time for pressure to build at the beginning (it takes it a bit longer with a full pot).
