    I added rosemary instead of parsley and it was delicious. It was very tender and tasty. Even my teenagers liked it. I am going to try this with turkey breast next.

    I have had a pressure cooker for two years and have always been "afraid" to use it (I would be the one to blow the lid off or have it explode all over the kitchen like an episode of 'I love Lucy'!) But this recipe is so easy to follow and simple, that I felt ready to give it a shot. Now I have used this recipe a few times now and LOVE it!! Today I have improvised a bit, adding oregano and bay leaf. No matter the spices/seasonings I am sure that it will turn out tender and juicy, and that's all I need. Thanks for sharing this one, it is now on my weekly rotation, and so is my pressure cooker! :)

    I'm an extremely inexperienced cook, but I improvised a bit with the recipe: mushroom broth instead of chicken broth (lower in fat); I can't tell a lie -- I found ground garlic with shallots and scallions at my grocery store; dried parsley; and I cut the salt in half since I was using Kosher chicken breasts and they're already salted. The chicken came out beautifully, even with my tinkering. It's moist and tender, and I've eaten it with a tossed salad and my special microwave butternut squash. The only difficulty is that I live in a studio apartment in NYC, and a day later the place still smells slightly of garlic and onion! In the immediate aftermath, my eyes were tearing slightly the odor was so strong. I may have to try less pungent ingredients -- bay leaf? rosemary? -- and see if that'll work.
