Do I Have to Saute Breasts Before Cooking?

ifoodreal.com)I just had to comment. Many recipes online ask you to saute chicken breast before pressure cooking in an effort “to lock in most of juices”. I can assure you I have cooked chicken breast in Instant Pot over 20 times and it comes out juicy if you follow my recipe.

Can I Cook Just One Breast?

Yes, you can. You can cook as many instapot chicken breasts as you need or as little as long as they fit into a single layer. Same cooking time. 

Does Size of Breast Matter?

6 oz or 10 oz – doesn’t matter. 10 minutes or 15 minutes of pressure cooking is enough time to cook standard American supermarket chicken breasts. (Source: ifoodreal.com)

Can I Use Bone-in Skin-on Chicken Breasts?

Absolutely! All you really need to do is cook them a little bit longer. Go ahead and sear the breasts the same way, and instead of 5 minutes, it will take 10 minutes to cook the chicken on high pressure. Follow the rest of the steps as instructed. (Source: www.jocooks.com)

What Size Instant Pot Can I Use?

That’s the great thing, you can use any size. This will work for 3 quart, 5 quart, 6 quart or 8 quart. I have an 6 quart Instant Pot. With the smaller Instant Pots you may need to cook less chicken breasts at a time because you want to make sure they are in a single layer. Don’t pile up the breasts, this could result in undercooked chicken.
