Stew: 6-8 bone-in chicken thighs
2 carrots, peeled, sliced thin
2 stalks of celery, sliced
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 golden potatoes, cubed
1 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed
1 15-ounce can green beans, rinsed
4 cups chicken stock
2 16-ounce cans tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse black pepper
1 sprig fresh rosemary
Just before serving: 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 cup cooked penne
chopped parsley, to taste
Serve with: sourdough bread with olive oil to dip it in

1. Toss chicken thighs, carrots, celery, onion, garlic, potatoes, beans (black and green), chicken stock, tomato sauce, salt, pepper, and rosemary in Instapot.
2. Once all ingredients have been added to the pot, put the lid on the pot, set the steam valve to closed, push the manual setting, and cook for 45 minutes.
3. Once done, let the soup sit for 10 minutes in the pot, sealed, then release the remainder of the steam carefully. Once the steam is released, remove the lid.
4. Transfer chicken thighs to a clean bowl, remove bones and skin, then roughly chop the cooked chicken. Return to the stew and mix in.
5. Add balsamic vinegar and penne and stir.
6. Remove rosemary sprig, sprinkle with fresh parsley, then serve.
