Instant Pot Chicken and Potatoe

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy. With an Instant Pot, chicken breasts are fall apart tender in just minutes! The Instant Pot is multi-functional, cooking soups, sauces, entrees, pastas, and desserts with the use of steam. The dish is often served with mashed potatoes or vegetables or can be served by itself.

Can I Use Chicken Thighs for This Recipe?

Yes, if you have chicken thighs or prefer chicken thighs, then you absolutely can substitute them for the chicken breasts. I would cook the chicken a little less time though, about 10-12 minutes. The potatoes should still be done.

Can I Use Frozen Chicken?

No time to thaw your chicken or you just forgot (we’ve all been there)? The Instant Pot can take care of that for you, too. However, I would recommend you thaw the breasts a little in the microwave first. Otherwise, the spices and parm will not stick to your breasts the way they should in this recipe if they are frozen solid. From there, you can follow the rest of the instructions, but increase the cooking time by about 20 minutes. (Source: www.lecremedelacrumb.com)

What Sides Would You Serve With This Dish?

I usually serve this with an easy side salad. But other sides that would go well with this (and that don’t take up too much time) include this Lemon Parmesan Roasted Asparagus, Roasted Lemon Garlic Broccoli & Cauliflower, corn (any which way you like it), beans, or a nice dinner roll or some French bread.

Can You Bake Potatoes in an Instant Pot?

If you like the idea of potatoes in an Instant Pot but you only want to bake potatoes, you can do that, too. An Instant Pot can hold about three pounds of potatoes at a time (but check your specific model to be sure first). Set the cleaned, whole potatoes on the rack and then add a cup of cold water. Cook on high pressure for 15-20 minutes, depending on how big your potatoes are. Release the pressure according to your pot’s directions. If you want a crispier skin, you can follow up the cooking process in the oven with a little olive oil glaze. You can also cook potatoes in an instant pot with beef, as seen in this Instant Pot Pot Roast recipe.
