When we tell you this is a true Dump and Start Chicken Recipe in the Pressure Cooker, you will be blown away. This recipe was inspired by our vintage recipe box we scored at a Garage sale.

We made the Swiss Steak you can find HERE. It was so delicious I was excited to choose another oldie but goodie. This recipe is actually called Trash Chicken. I never heard of such a thing. Perhaps that is what they called dump recipes back in the day. Dump sounds better than trash, I suppose.

I tweaked the recipe a tad to our liking. I didn’t want to use the seafood seasoning that the recipe called for. In lieu, we used Sazon Goya seasoning (Cilantro & Tomato). You can find this seasoning in the spice section. There are a few varieties to choose from. Keep in mind you can use any seasoning you like for this recipe. If you want to use Old Bay, Onion Soup, Vegetable stock, etc.

Once you try the Sazon Goya seasonings you will want to have them on hand often. They are fantastic for soups, stews, veggies, and rice.

NOTE: If you can’t find the Goya seasoning, you can make your own with a little tomato paste, cilantro, lemon, salt, and pepper. You can get creative with the base being tomato paste. (Just be sure to mix it in water first.

Once everything is dumped in the pot, you pour the seasoning mixed with one cup of water to the pot. Press start, and Go.

The only seasoning I used aside from the Goya was dried Cilantro. You can use fresh if you choose. The dry was just fine and really tasted amazing.

If you want to serve this recipe as a soup, you can do so, but doubling the Sazon Goya seasoning and water. If not, you still have plenty of juices to drizzle over the meal.
