So for Christmas I received an Instant Pot® and immediately thought how cool. I had heard about them in podcasts that I listen to, but then thought will I really use it? Yes! I love it... cuts down cook time and everything is super tender and flavorful. I am a fan! This Greek chicken was done in no time!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Select the Saute function on your multi-functional electric pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®). Add oil and roasted garlic to the pot; cook and stir until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  • Season 1 side of chicken breasts with 1/2 of the garlic and herb seasoning, garlic salt, and black pepper. Place chicken in the pot, seasoned side down. Cook until browned, about 2 minutes. Season the top with the remaining garlic and herb seasoning, garlic salt, and black pepper. Flip and cook until other side is browned, about 2 minutes.

  • Arrange artichoke hearts and olives around the chicken in the pot, filling in any gaps on the bottom and on top of chicken. Top with red onion. Pour dressing over chicken.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 15 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Remove chicken from the pot. Add arrowroot starch to the liquid in the pot and whisk until combined. Return chicken to the pot. Allow sauce to thicken, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper and top with feta cheese.

This was delicious! I wasn't sure if the chicken was supposed to be frozen or thawed but since the recipe called for browning it I thawed my chicken. It worked well. I don't like artichokes so I left those out but other than that I made as directed. Once the chicken was done we shredded it and ate it with pita bread. I had some homemade tzatziki sauce which my son loves so he used some of that as well and said it was really good. Great recipe! Read More

Excellent even though I was forced to make some changes I loved it. I didn't have garlic and herb seasoning so I had to use Herbs de Provence and I didn't have a red onion so I had to use celery. I also threw some fresh roma tomatoes in and made a greek oil dressing I found on this site. Really thought this was delicious though and will make again. Hopefully correctly next time. Thanks for a great recipe. Read More

Made this last night and it was delicious! I used 4 chicken breasts and found that I didnt have enough seasoning to cover them so I will double the seasoning next time. The chicken is so tender and has intense flavor permeating throughout. Definitely going in my file!:) Read More

Really nice recipe. I don't have an Instant pot so I browned the seasoned chicken and arranged the rest of the ingredients in a baking pan at 350 for about 35 minutes. Made my own salad dressing (6 T olive oil 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1 T lemon juice 1 clove garlic minced 1 t Dijon mustard 1 t dried oregano). Try this chicken recipe you won't be disappointed.

Super easy and very tasty. I sauted the garlic in olive oil in the IP and then just threw everything in (I'm lazy). It really turned out great! Hubby suggested using lamb next time. Read More

Oh my gosh this was Devine! I did not add the feta and I m glad because the flavors were strong enough without it. Next time I will cut back on the olives too. I liked it how it was but my spouse declared it slightly too olivey. Read More
