  • 2 pounds (907g) red potatoes baby or regular,
  • ¾ cup (177ml) chicken stock
  • 4 tablespoons butter cubed
  • 2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • salt to taste


  • Wash the potatoes, dry and cut in half (if using smaller baby potatoes) or into quarters for larger red potatoes.
  • Put potatoes in the Instant Pot insert. Pour chicken stock over the potatoes and sprinkle on the Italian seasoning, garlic and salt.
  • Place the lid on and turn the valve to the sealing position. Set to high pressure for 7 minutes.
  • When done, perform a quick pressure release. Open the lid and gently stir so that the potatoes are coated in the mixture (carefully so they don't break).
  • Top with herbs if desired and then serve.


  • Cut the potatoes to the same size so they cook at the same rate.  
  • These potatoes are not peeled – just wash and cut – really eaaaaaaasy.
  • If you want the potatoes crispy, you can broil them for a few minutes after cooking.
  • Use baby potatoes or other potatoes you already have to hand.
  • Feel free to double up the recipe - as long as you don't go past the fill line of the pressure cooker.
  • There are 7 Blue Plan SmartPoints in one serving of this.
