These juicy and easy Instant Pot chicken breasts come out perfect every time and make for a great meal prep option for weeknight dinners. They are seasoned to perfection and have the perfect amount of chicken broth.



  • 3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsp garlic powder
  • 3 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth 


  1. Season the chicken. 
  2. Set the Instant Pot on saute mode and add the olive oil to the pot.
  3. Sear the chicken breasts on both sides for about 10 minutes. Set aside.
  4. Add chicken broth to the Instant Pot and scrape any bits off of the bottom.
  5. Add the trivet to the Instant Pot and then put the chicken back on top.
  6. Set the Instant Pot to pressure cook for 5 minutes. It will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure. Make sure the valve is set correctly.
  7. Allow the Instant Pot to naturally release for 10 minutes.
  8. Once the red pin drops, it is safe to remove the pressure cooker lid. Your chicken breasts are done!


  • You need 1 cup of liquid to cook chicken in the Instant Pot. You can play around with broths and liquids for the ultimate personalized chicken breast recipe
  • If your chicken comes out rubbery or tough, set the pressure cooker to cook for another 2-5 minutes. It shouldn’t take as long to come to pressure the second time around.
