So Many Reasons to Love this Chicken Recipe!
I love being able to try and make different recipes in the Instant Pot that can help change up the dinner plans here and there.
The Thai chicken comes out so tender! After cooking this in the Instant Pot, you should place it on a sheet pan and place under the broiler in your oven. This will help give it a nice browned looking appearance.
Instant Pot Thai Chicken Thighs Recipe
This recipe calls for the use of skinless and boneless chicken thighs; however, you can just use skinless with the bone in chicken thighs. Can you use chicken thighs with the skin on? Yes you can, it’s a texture thing for me…so I say leave it off. If you were going to make this in the oven or even the crock, I would say leave the skin on. It’ll have a different consistency.
You can always make this with chicken breast meat or chicken tenderloins, and they’ll turn out pretty fabulous!
One trick to this recipe is to add enough liquid to the peanut sauce prior to cooking. If the sauce is too thick, the Instant Pot may not be able to reach adequate pressure. So, if you decide to add more peanut butter, be sure to adjust the amount of liquid, as well.
I hope you enjoy this recipe, as much as I enjoy sharing it with you!
