    I made a few modest changes. I used a combination of chicken broth and white wine instead of water and increased amount to 1 cup. After releasing the pressure, I checked seasoning and added salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste, then checked for seasoning a second time just prior to thickening with cornstarch as a last step. Served over a basic rice pilaf.

    After reading the other review I made some changes, I first rubbed the chicken with a pack of rotisserie chicken seasoning. Then I used chicken broth instead of water. Next time I will add a cornstarch thicker to it, to make it more of a gravy instead of a soup.

    This has promise. It's just a bit bland and I'm not sure what to add to it to pep it up.
