  2. It doesn’t seem like there is enough liquid in here to come to pressure. My 8 qt requires a cup and a half and even a 6qt needs a cup of liquid. How does this work?

    • You are correct…there was an ingredient omitted. You need to 1/2 cup of chicken stock. The recipe is now updated. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.
