I want to make chicken soup on a pressure cooker using a stewing chicken. How long should I cook it to get it tender?

I have one of those old laying hens which are supposed to be the best for soup but using the normal pressure cooker chicken soup recipe leaves it too tough (20 minutes) since it's for a regular chicken. How long should I cook the stewing chicken for?

While not specifying the type of chicken, these old threads suggest 45 minutes to an hour: https://food52.com/hotline... and https://food52.com/hotline...
