These Instant Pot Chicken Thighs are an easy, healthy dinner made right in your electric pressure cooker! Add your own sauces and seasonings or bbq sauce. Quickly and easily cook chicken thighs in your Instant Pot from FRESH or FROZEN -- no need to thaw!
Season both sides of the chicken thighs with salt and pepper.
OPTIONAL: Turn Instant Pot to saute and wait until it says "hot". Add 1 tablespoon oil, and brown chicken thighs on each side for 1-2 minutes per side. Turn off. If you brown the chicken, you'll need to make sure the bottom of the pot is clean before starting to pressure cook -- see notes above.
Add chicken broth, close the lid, turn the valve to sealing, and set to Manual, high pressure, for 8 minutes.
Once the cook time is up, turn the Instant Pot to off and let pressure release naturally for 10-15 minutes. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid and drain the rest.
Stir together the ketchup, honey, Worcestershire sauce, corn starch, vinegar, garlic, mustard and reserve cooking liquid. Pour into Instant Pot and turn to saute.
Let cook until thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Serve immediately.
