These Instant Pot Barbeque Chicken Thighs start in the instant pot and finish up under the broiler. They come out juicy and fabulous
Making Instant Pot Barbeque Chicken Thighs is a 35 minute or less dinner that you can throw together. They are great on weeknights when you have worked all-day or just don't feel like taking a long time fixing dinner.
Our house is definitely a mostly chicken home. Leading me to share mostly chicken recipes CrockPot Creamy Mushroom Chicken Buffalo Chicken Tenders. I love a good steak but the hubby rarely veers far from chicken. We always ate mostly boneless skinless breasts because we thought that was the healthiest. It seemed no matter how I prepared the breasts they always seemed to get dried out.
Well, we recently started buying bone-in skin-on thighs and wow! Thighs have so much more flavor. Putting them in the instant pot makes them even moister. That's what I really love about the instant pot, everything comes out so moist and delicious. Even those breasts that were so dried out, come out of the instant pot so much moister.
