Does it matter which pressure cooker I use?
The short answer is yes and no. If you are following this recipe, you will want to use an Instant Pot, as that is the cooking time that has been tested for these ingredients. If you are opting to use a different brand of pressure cooker, ensure that you check the required cooking time for both frozen and thawed variations of chicken.
I am adding this to our favorite Easy Family-Friendly recipes which include Instant Pot Leftover Turkey Bone Broth and California Pizza Kitchen Pizza.
Making recipes at home is a great way to get the rich restaurant flavor without spending a ton of money.

3 chicken breasts (frozen or fresh)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 clove of garlic; crushed or chopped finely
2 cups mushrooms; sliced
1 tbsp of basil
2 tbsp olive oil

Add chicken on top of the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper;
Add broth to the Instant Pot. Close the lid and change setting to Manual Pressure High for 12 minutes. Ensure the vent is set to “Sealing”. If the Chicken is frozen, adjust cooking time to 18 minutes;
After the cook time has completed, vent to release pressure, be careful, stay away from the hot steam. Remove chicken from the pot, shred, and place it in a serving bowl. To the pot, add milk, and cornstarch and water;
Sautee and as soon as the sauce starts to bubble, add the broccoli;
Simmer for about 5 minutes or until the broccoli is cooked through;
