  1. Mrs. Shereen, great hearty recipe for soup, very close to mine, i will have to try the fresh lemon. For the amount in your recipe, i add 1 level teaspoon of poultry seasoning & any brand will work , even store or dollar store brand as i have tried several & they all taste the same to me & the instapot is a real time saver, well worth the money to purchase one for folks, subs & viewers alike. God bless you all., btw, that was one plump chicken, lol, here in rural Kentucky we call them yard birds, lol.
