Lemon and Herb Chicken Ingredients

  • Chicken Thighs
  • Garlic
  • Oregano
  • Parsley Flakes
  • Onion
  • butter
  • Potatoes, any kind you like
  • cooking oil
  • chicken stock, or water
  • Carrots
  • Lemons

This one-pot lemon and herb chicken and mashed potatoes use all the typical ingredients. Mix up the recipe by using different types of potatoes. I like to use red potatoes for more sweet and creamy mashed potatoes.

How to make Instant Pot Lemon and Herb Chicken

After you have gathered all of your ingredients you will need to start by peeling the potatoes and slicing the garlic and onions. Slice the potatoes into about an inch thick and then set them aside.

Turn the pressure cooker on and hit Chicken/Poultry (or Saute) and fill it with cooking oil. Fry the chicken thighs skin down first and add salt and pepper to taste. Flip and add more salt and pepper to taste. Add the garlic, slice lemon and onions and saute for 2 minutes.

Adding the Lemons and herbs

Add the chicken stock, squeeze 1-2 lemons inside and toss in the carrots. Add steam rack to the top of the pot, layer the potatoes evenly throughout the rack. Close the lid and wait for the pot to come to pressure from using the Chicken/Poultry setting, or manual and cook as directed on the recipe card.

Instant Pot Lemon and Herb Mashed Potatoes

Release the pressure and wait for the lid to unlock, remove the chicken thighs out carefully, and set them on a pan to broil in the oven for 5-10 minutes (the longer your broiler the crispier the skin will be).

Add the Oregano and Parsley and Mix. Scoop out the carrots and vegetables into a measuring cup or bowl. Pour some of the sauce over the chicken and then set it in the oven to broil. Leave some sauce in the pot and add the potatoes back into the pot. Set the pot to Saute or hit Chicken/Poultry.

Let the sauce thicken and then mash the potatoes and add the butter and milk. I highly recommend you leave them semi-chunky because they are amazing that way.

This recipe is definitely NOT instapot mini friendly. We got the 3 quart one as a wedding gift this was the first recipe I tried and it failed miserably :(

If using an instant pot, do you follow the same recipe or does it need to be adjusted? Thanks.
