Instant Pot Chicken Breasts

This is my tried and true method for making Instant Pot chicken breasts that are tender, juicy and delicious!

Instant Pot Chicken Breasts

Ingredients
  1. 1 Tablespoon oil (I use avocado, but you can use coconut or canola - something with a high smoke point is best!)
  2. 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (uncooked)
  3. 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt per chicken breast (or you can use just garlic powder and regular salt)
  4. dash black pepper
  5. 1/8 teaspoon dried oregano
  6. 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  7. 1 cup water

Instructions
  • Preheat the sauté function on the Instant Pot at the highest setting, and add oil to the pot.
  • Season one side of the chicken breasts.
  • After the display reads "hot," carefully add the chicken breasts, seasoned side down, to the pot. I use tongs to avoid hot oil splatter.
  • Add seasoning on the second side.
  • Cook about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, and remove from pot with the tongs.
