The Best Instant Pot Chicken Thighs

Instant Pot Chicken Thighs are so easy to make, tender, and full of flavor. I used bone in chicken thighs, but this method would work with boneless skinless chicken thighs as well.

Printable Recipe:

6-8 Bone in Chicken Thighs, skin removed
Salt and pepper to taste
1 teaspoon Garlic powder
1 teaspoon Smoked paprika
2 tablespoons Avocado oil
1 Cup water

Lay the chicken thighs out on a cutting board and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and smoked paprika.
Turn the Instant Pot on HI Sauté . When the display reads “hot” add 1 tablespoon of the oil. Brown the chicken thighs on both sides in batches adding additional oil as needed.
Remove the chicken from the pot and add the water. Scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to remove any burned bits. Cancel sauté function.
Add the trivet to the pot, then the chicken. Seal the lid and pressure cook on high for 10 minutes.
When the Instant Pot is finished cooking, do a 10 minute natural pressure release, then release the rest of the pressure with a quick release.
Remove the chicken from the pot and serve.

  1. I’ll try this but it seems like more work when you can get the same from grilling and it’s so much easier. Just bought an insta pot and am an avid camping/outdoors cooker so I’ll certainly put some effort into making it work for me while at the house.

  2. Towards the end when she said she put the pot on manual setting, Does that mean the basic pressure cook button? Forgive me….I'm new to instant pot cooking and trying every recipe I can. I've noticed that some have a different or older version than mine.

  3. My partner can't stop taking about instapot. She loves it, talks about everything it can cook and how easy cleanup is and I guess that's for my own good since I do the majority of cooking. I've made a real nice pork butt roast now I'm going to do this
