Instant Pot Chicken and Potatoes

Juicy chicken breasts and tender potatoes with a bit of parmesan is an ideal one-pot dinner you can make in only 25 minutes!

It cannot get easier than this as we are sure you have all the ingredients in your pantry already.

Which potatoes to use?

We used new potatoes, but you can go with golden or red potatoes. Just make sure they are small enough.

Can I use frozen chicken?

Yes, you can use frozen chicken, just thaw overnight. I do not recommend going with frozen chicken in the Instant Pot since the potatoes will cook faster and the chicken will stay raw.

Can I use chicken thighs instead of breasts?

Absolutely. The chicken thighs are the juiciest part of the chicken. If using one, decrease cooking time by 5 minutes. Just make sure you are using really small potatoes or small cuts of potatoes. This ensures all is cooked the same.

What about spice blend?

This recipe uses Mediterranean herbs. Still, you can use any types of herbs and spices you like.

    This was super tasty!! However, mine burned to the bottom. All the liquid evaporated and I even added a little extra chicken stock because I didn’t feel like it was enough. How can I fix that? I’m new with an instant pot.

    1. Ashley says:

      I just made this for dinner! Used 1 cup of chicken stock instead of half. No burning or sticking, but I had to add 20 mins to the cook time (35 mins total). Not sure why… after 15 mins, chicken was very obviously not done yet.

        Thank you for letting us know Ashley! That’s so good to know!
