Directions

1. To make the Instant Pot Lemon Garlic Chicken Breasts: Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

2. Press the Sauté function (Normal setting in the Instant Pot) and add the olive oil to the insert.

3. Place chicken breasts in the Instant Pot and allow to sear on each side for 2 minutes, or until golden brown. You may have to work in batches depending on the size of the chicken breasts. Once the chicken is browned, remove it from Instant Pot and set it aside.

4. Melt butter in the Instant Pot and stir in the onions and garlic. Add lemon juice to deglaze the insert pan. Cook for 1 minute then add Italian seasoning, red chili pepper flakes, Sriracha, and chicken broth.

5. Place the chicken breasts back into the Instant Pot, close the lid, and make sure to turn the valve to SEAL. Select the Manual or Pressure Cook mode and adjust the timer to 7 minutes. The Instant Pot should take about 5-10 minutes to come to pressure and start counting down.

6. When time is over, allow to naturally release for 2-3 minutes then push the valve to RELEASE, then remove the lid. Sprinkle the Instant Pot Lemon Garlic Chicken Breasts with chopped parsley, and serve hot with your favorite sides – We recommend these delicious grilled zucchini or zucchini noodles, cauliflower rice, pasta. Spoon The lemon garlic sauce over chicken and garnish with lemon slices. Enjoy!

Tips for the Instant Post Lemon Garlic Chicken Breasts Recipe

  • Feel free to customize your own spice mix, but make sure to season the Instant Pot chicken. Chicken breasts are pretty bland so you might want to maximize the flavor profile! Cooking under pressure helps all the flavors to permeate the meat.

Can we use other cuts of chicken?

Sure, this Instant Pot chicken recipe works well with boneless, skinless chicken thighs.

Can we use frozen chicken breasts?

Yes, you can, but you’ll have to skip the sauteeing and lose some flavor. Set the Instant Pot for 15 minutes and make sure each chicken breast is separated. Otherwise, simply thaw chicken breasts on the counter or refrigerator overnight until ready to cook.

Can we cook bone-in chicken breasts?

Yes, all you really need to do is cook it a little bit longer, like 10 minutes instead of 7.

How and how long to keep the Instant Pot Chicken Breasts leftovers?

This Instant Pot chicken breasts recipe keeps for 4 days in the refrigerator in an airtight container. Reheat in the skillet with a few drops of water to loosen the sauce.
