How to Cook Instant Pot Braised Chicken Thighs Recipe

Makes 6-8 servings

Ingredients: 2 tablespoons (60 ml) olive oil, 8 bone-in, and skin-on chicken thighs, sea salt, and freshly ground black pepper, to taste, 1/3 pound (160 g) Italian pancetta, 1 large white onion, a pinch of red pepper flakes, 2-3 cloves garlic,ย  1 cup (250 ml) dry white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc, 1-2 cups (250-500 ml) low-sodium fat-free chicken broth, 4 sprigs fresh thyme

Instructions: On a cutting board, dice the pancetta into 1/2-inch (1.25 cm) dice. Peel and julienne the white onion. Peel and mince garlic cloves. Wash, trim, and slice mushrooms.

Cook Chicken in Instant Pot

Heat the olive oil in a pressure cooker (instant pot) turned to the sautรฉ function. Sprinkle chicken thighs with salt and black pepper. Working in batches, add to the hot oil and brown on both sides until golden. Transfer browned chicken to a large plate, removing any excess fat from the pan.

Add diced pancetta and cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, then add julienned onion, and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened, for about 3 minutes.

Stir in red pepper flakes and minced garlic. Continue cooking and stirring until fragrant, for a further 30 seconds. Pour in the dry white wine and bring to a boil. When boiling, pour in 1 cup (250 ml) of chicken broth and stir in the fresh thyme.

Return the reserved chicken to the pot along with any accumulated juices. Add the remaining cup of chicken broth and bring the chicken mixture to a boil.

Close the instant pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 12 minutes.

Using the Quick Release method, bring pressure to normal. Discard the thyme. Using tongs, transfer cooked chicken thighs to a serving bowl. Cover and keep warm.

Taste the sauce for salt and black pepper. Stir well. Stir in the reserved almond purรฉe. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove the sauce from the pot. Place chicken thighs on serving plates. Pour the liquid over. Serve immediately.
