HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN THIGHS IN INSTANT POT
PREP TIME: 5 MIN
– olive oil – butter – chicken thighs bone-in and with skin – small onion peeled and diced – Italian seasoning – minced garlic – salt and pepper to taste – chicken broth – rosemary sprigs – juice from 1 lemon – heavy cream

Season the chicken thighs with some salt and pepper and set aside.
Set the Instant Pot to the sauté mode. Add in the olive oil and butter, allow butter to melt before browning the meat for 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the Instant Pot and set aside.
Add all of the remaining ingredients except for the cream and use a wooden spoon to deglaze the pan and scrape up any bits that may be stuck to the bottom. Return the chicken to the pot and seal.
COOKING CHICKEN SAFELY
It is important to make sure that chicken is always cooked completely. The most accurate way to check for doneness is to use a meat thermometer and insert it into the meatiest part of the chicken thigh.
