Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 8 boneless and skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) chicken broth
  • 3 tablespoons capers, rinsed
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method

Step 1

In a mixing bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Mix well. Add chicken, turning to coat all sides. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Step 2

Remove marinated chicken from marinade, reserving liquid. Pat dry with a paper towel. Season marinated chicken thighs with salt and black pepper.

Step 3

In a pressure cooker turned to the sauté mode, and heat the remaining oil and butter. Working in the batches, lightly brown marinated chicken for about 3 minutes per side. Remove cooked chicken from the pressure cooker and transfer it to a plate.

Step 4

Add the shallots to the pot and cook, stirring, until softened. Pour reserved liquid into the pot along with chicken broth and scrape any browned bits from the bottom. Return chicken to pressure cooker. Sprinkle in drained capers.

Step 5

Close the pressure cooker and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 10 minutes.

Step 6

Using the Quick Release method, bring pressure to normal. Open the pot (be careful of the steam as you remove the lid) and stir in lemon zest. Season with salt and black pepper, if need it.

Step 7

Transfer cooked chicken to a serving platter. Pour sauce over and serve immediately.
