Zesty Instant Pot Chicken Thighs, From frozen to ready to eat all done in the Instant Pot and oven in only 30 minutes.
How long does it take to cook thighs in Instant Pot?
For Boneless Thighs: Pressure cook on high for 8 minutes for fresh or 12 minutes for frozen thighs. For Bone-in Thighs: Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes for fresh, or 15 minutes for frozen thighs. Allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then turn the valve to “venting” to release any remaining steam.
Can you put frozen chicken in an Instapot?
Yes, you can safely cook frozen meat in an Instant Pot because pressure cooking cooks foods quickly. Unlike a slow cooker, in which frozen food may stay in a dangerous temperature range for too long, the Instant Pot can quickly bring frozen food to a safe temperature.
