  • 1⁄4 cup diced salt pork

  • Add the meatier pieces of chicken, skin side down, and brown until crisp. Add 1 tablespoon parsley and the remaining ingredients except for the tomato paste.
  • Lock the lid into place. Bring to low pressure; maintain pressure for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the pan from the heat and quick-release the pressure. Place the chicken on a serving platter and keep warm.
  • Return the pan to the heat, stir the tomato paste into the sauce in pressure cooker, and simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened. Pour the sauce over chicken. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon parsley over the top.
