Add a little oregano and lemon zest for extra flavor! That's what I did and it turned out great. I also used all boneless, skinless chicken breast. It pairs perfectly with a salad or other green vegetable.

Delicious, hearty, and full of flavor. I used red potatoes and they turned out great. I served it with fresh sautéed garlicky spinach. I had no idea I could use the steam rack and basket to cook two things at once. I've had my pressure cooker for awhile and used it only a handful of times. Now that I know this trick, I'm going to be using it much more.

This is the first recipe I made with my new Multipot! It's quick, super easy to clean (win), and cooks the food to perfection. The meat came out tender and the flavor was spot on. Such a convenient, delicious meal.

The chicken was super moist and tender! I didn't use honey but thought the lemon flavors were perfect. The garlic and thyme are a must, I even added extra!

I made this recipe with leg quarters and the meat was really tender and juicy. From start to finish this took under 1 hour, which is a win for me. My family loved it, even my picky kids (they never like anything). Glad I found something healthy, quick, and kid friendly.

This was my first use of the appliance. In terms of time, I was definitely not disappointed! My only complaint is that the sauté heat was really high and we had a surprising amount of spatter from the pot. The chicken was not very flavorful, but again this could be because of something I did wrong in my first use.

I used boneless skinless thighs, because that’s what I had on hand. After sautéing them, and removing from the pot, I added the garlic & also mushrooms and onions to the pot for a few minutes, then deglazed per the recipe. I only had vegetable stock and no thyme; however I had fresh tarragon! The whole family loved this - I’ll have to not have the correct ingredients again :) Also, I crisped the chicken a little with the crisp lid at the end.

Delicious! I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts and seasoned with garlic powder, Italian seasoning and salt and pepper. Used petite gold potatoes since that’s all I had on hand. This was a major crowd pleaser, including my 4 year old! So good, so quick and so easy.

I use boneless skinless chicken breasts and replace the wine with chicken stock. Comes out wonderfully every time!



Delicious. But I used salt, pepper, garlic powder and Italian seasoning for more flavor. The rest was perfectly cooked and yummy.

Chicken was moist but not very flavorful, the potatoes on the other hand were dynamite.

OMG, I've never liked cooking until I bought the Instant Pot last year! This Pandemic has pushed me to try new recipes. This lemon chicken is to die for. Moist chicken and tender potatoes. I don't like sweet chicken so I didn't use the honey. I wasn't going to make a trip to the liquor store so as someone else suggested I used extra broth instead (didn't have stock). I had some frozen green beans so after I took the chicken and potatoes out, I used the broth to quckly cook them. Try it you'll like it. Easy peezy!
