This method is labour-saving and quick I rarely cook my chicken breasts any other way. It is absolutely foolproof. Chicken comes out moist and tender, never overcooked or weird textured, like when you cook them in a crock pot for a long time. This instant pot cooked chicken breasts have been life savers so many times during busy week nights. And the best part you don’t need to defrost them at all.
You can even thicken the sauce right in the pot after the chicken is cooked. After the chicken is done, remove it from the pot and turn your Instant Pot to saute mode. Make a cornstarch slurry by stirring together a mixture of cornstarch and water. Cook, stirring, until the sauce thickens. This will take about 2 to 3 minutes.
