    I made this. Flavour is good. But, needs a bit more liquid. I’d suggest 2 cups of broth. Otherwise, yummy.

    Good recipe but I recommend cutting the olives by half and adding a bit more broth. I added previously cooked and it was a good add.

    Remember. Some of us a nervous using this machine and to cooking in general. So, “Easy” means you provide complete details on quanity and perhaps type or suggestions. .ie Broth: what kind? How much? Thanks

    Hi Carmir,

    There is definitely a learning curve when using a new way of cooking. We have great resources on our site to get you started. This recipe is “easy” in the sense of the steps required but we understand any recipe can be intimidating when you are not comfortable yet using your Instant Pot or cooking.

    All quantities can be found in ingredients

    The ingredients state to use either chicken or vegetable broth.
