  • Yield: 4-6 1x


Learn how to make the juiciest chicken thighs right in the Instant Pot. It takes no time at all and you can sear, set it, and forget it.


  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2lbs. chicken thighs (I used boneless + skinless here)
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1 pinch paprika


  1. Set the Instant Pot to “Saute” for 12 minutes.
  2. After 2 minutes, add the oil, let it heat for 1 minute, and then add the chicken thighs.
  3. Sear on both sides, flipping about halfway through.
  4. Once the cycle finishes, add the remaining ingredients to the Instant Pot.
  5. Place the lid on the Instant Pot and turn the knob to “Sealing”.
  6. Select “Pressure Cook” on high pressure and set the cycle for 5 minutes.
  7. Allow the cycle to run and immediately perform a manual release.
  8. Enjoy!


  • the chicken can be eaten as is, or it shreds wonderfully for salads,  tacos, dips, whatever!
  • Reserve the liquid from the pot & add it to soups or sauces once the fat separates from the top!
