1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning

1 cup pineapple juice, (you can also use low sodium chicken broth or water)

HOW TO MAKE TENDER AND JUICY INSTANT POT CHICKEN BREASTS

Step 1: Start by rinsing the chicken with water. Then, pat them dry using paper towels.

Step 2: Into a small bowl, combine the garlic powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder, salt, ground black pepper, and paprika. Drizzle with olive oil and mix until well blended, and you have a mixture that resembles a paste.

Step 3: With the paste, rub each chicken breast, coating the chicken well.

Step 4: Set the Instant Pot to “Saute”, then drizzle 1 tablespoon olive oil into the pot. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken breast to the pot and sear for about 2 minutes on each side or until golden brown. To a plate lined with paper towels, transfer the chicken breasts.

Step 5: Into the pot, pour the pineapple juice. Deglaze the pot and return the chicken breasts. Put the lid on and cook on a high setting for 5 minutes.

Step 6: When the time is up, natural release the pressure. Set the chicken breasts aside when done and let them rest for a couple of minutes.

Step 7: For the gravy (optional), set the Instant Pot to “Saute” and let the sauce boil. Stir in the slurry and simmer for a couple of minutes until the sauce has thickened.

Step 8: Over the chicken breasts, pour the gravy, and serve garnished with some fresh herbs. Enjoy!
