Instant Pot Mediterranean Chicken Recipe - Primavera Kitchen

I bought my Instant Pot last November and I’m hooked since the first time I tried to make a recipe with it. I was amusing how fast I could make a healthy and delicious dinner. Isn’t it absolutely amazing to be able to cook entire dinner in 10 or 20 minutes? Yes, it is! Gotta love it and of course I do.

The best thing about the Instant Pot is you don’t have to watch it! You set the time and go. That’s the miracle of the Instant Pot. You have a dinner idea, separate the ingredients you need from your pantry and fridge and put together a healthy meal for your whole family in no time.

Do you want to know what I did to make this super easy Instant Pot Mediterranean Chicken recipe? Well… First I sealed the chicken in a sauté mode, then I browned the onions and finally I added all the spices and the diced tomatoes in the Instant Pot. I waited for only 8 minutes and all done! I have to say that the ability to throw chicken, spices, onions and tomatoes into a pot and have dinner ready to go in less than 10 minutes is just absolutely awesome. On top of that, you made this delicious Instant Pot Mediterranean Chicken with almost no work at all.

This recipe is so good that I believe you will make it many times. You will be impressed with how fast the chicken cooks and how moist it is. Also the chicken thighs are so tender, juicy and flavorful because it’s cooked in a sauce under pressure. So good! Perfect recipe for a busy weeknight meal!
