Ingredients

  • 2 pounds chicken bone-in thighs, drumsticks and if you prefer breasts as well
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 pounds baby potatoes peeled and cut in half
  • 1 red onion roughly diced
  • 2 carrots cut into large pieces
  • 8 oz mushrooms cleaned and halved
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 3 sprigs fresh rosemary

Instructions

  1. Using a 6-quart Instant Pot, turn on Saute mode to High.
  2. Pat dry chicken pieces and season them with salt and pepper.
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the Instant Pot and once hot, brown the chicken on both sides, about 4-5 minutes per side. Work in batches not to overcrowd the IP.
  4. Once done, set the chicken aside and add the broth, using a wooden spoon scrape up any brown bits from the bottom to avoid the burn notice.
  5. Add the trivet to the bottom.
  6. In a large bowl, toss the vegetables with the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, Italian seasoning, paprika, oregano, basil, and minced garlic. Add on top of the trivet.
  7. Add chicken pieces on top of the vegetables.
  8. Top with fresh rosemary sprigs.
  9. Set IP to high pressure and cook for 13 minutes, followed by Natural Release of 5 minutes and after that a quick release.
  10. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
