Combine first 8 ingredients in a 6-quart pressure cooker. Close lid securely, and bring to high pressure over high heat (for about 13 minutes). Adjust heat to medium or level needed to maintain high pressure; cook 17 minutes. Remove from heat; let pressure drop. Remove lid. Remove chicken from cooker; cool slightly. Remove chicken from bones, and shred with 2 forks. Return shredded chicken to cooker. Stir in carrot and remaining ingredients. Close lid securely, and bring to high pressure over high heat (about 7 minutes). Adjust heat to medium or level needed to maintain high pressure; cook 3 minutes. Remove from heat; cool under cold water. Remove lid. Discard bay leaf.
This has definitely been my favorite soup for many years! My friends and family ask for it often . Not only is it easy to make, it's versatile and freezable. I like to add fresh thyme and parsley and I do not use the pressure cooker.
