  • Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper on both sides; add to Instant Pot(R). Cook one side at a time until both sides of the chicken are a golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Remove chicken from the pot and set aside.

  • Add onion and sauté for 1 minute. Add garlic and cook for 1 more minute. Pour in white wine and stir to scrape brown bits from the bottom of the pot. Stir in chicken broth and lemon juice; bring to a boil and cook until broth has reduced slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Turn off the Sauté function.

  • Return chicken Instant Pot(R). Close and lock the lid. Select High pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 10 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, for 10 minutes. Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid.

  • Remove chicken from the pot and set aside. Select the Sauté mode and bring sauce to a boil. Whisk in butter or margarine, heavy cream, salt, and thyme. Cook until sauce has thickened slightly, 2 to 3 minutes. Serve chicken drizzled with the sauce.

Decent taste but sauce was thin and didn t taste of lemon. I spent 10 minutes trying to reduce the sauce. Any longer and the chicken would get cold. I m going to cut the chicken broth and wine in half next time. Read More

this was the first time using my new Instant Pot and the chicken turned out perfectly. I did not care for the lemon taste and the sauce was too thin so I reduced it as much as I could. I would probably eliminate the broth next time and perhaps thicken the sauce. Read More
