    It says, “see note above.”
    There aren’t any notes.
    Also, what do I do with this lemon?
    So you recommend cooking in an
    instant pot without liquid?

      Hi, You have a note above-“Please note, that cooking time may vary, depending on your cut of chicken. The internal temperature for tender chicken is 165º F (80º C).”
      You cook it in olive oil and do not need any other liquid. Lemon is for garnish only. Regards

        I thank you for your response. Tried to make this per your directions, the instant pot shut down displaying the “BURN” mode.
        I removed the ingredients to a small casserole. Added 2 cups of water, inserted the trivet and put the casserole on top of the trivet. Pot in a pot.
        Really good flavor, making again tonight.
