Braised Chicken with Red Potato in Pressure Cooker

Have you ever used red potato for braising? Well, for me I never buy any red potato for stewing or braising..I always use Idaho potato which have buttery texture for cooking but never red potato..Couple weeks ago when I shop at Meat Farm,saw bag of bags of 5 lbs red potato on the rack.So I grab a pack and throw in my shopping cart,there you go...but I have no idea what to do with this red potato..I should use this red potato for braising before it's grow sprout or rotten...To my surprised, red potato texture is not as buttery as Idaho potato but it's have soft and smooth texture which it's a great pairing with chicken..Furthermore, I used pressure cooker when cooking this hearty spicy-sweet tangy delicious dish..The chicken meat just fall off from the bone itself..

10 chicken drumstick
5 red potato,scrub and cut 1/2 each(no peeling)
2 tbsp minced garlic
2 inch old ginger,peeled and sliced
10 dry small pepper
2 tbsp oil
4-5 tbsp sesame oil
4 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp chicken bouillon powder
1 tbsp salt
1 cup water


1:Heat pressure cooker at medium heat with oil,garlic,dry small pepper and ginger.Fry garlic and ginger for 1 minute,then add in chicken,potato ,water and all the seasoning into the pressure cooker..
2:Close the lid and knob tightly before increase the heat to high..Cook for 10-15 minutes before shut off the heat or remove the cooker from heat.
3:Slowly release the knob of cooker before remove the lid.Check the seasoning..If necessary add some salt or soy sauce.
4:Dish out and serve warm with rice.

Yes pigpigscorner. The pressure cooker is one of my kitchen superpowers. This braised chicken sounds like a "Pochero" I guess - or maybe its the combination of all goodness as seen in the soupy sauce. Just wonderful. Thanks Lesley.
