Brown Chicken Thighs or Chicken Breasts: Heat up Instant Pot using Sauté More function. Wait until it says HOT. This prevents chicken from sticking to the pot.Pat dry chicken and season one side gently with salt + black pepper. Add in 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter or olive oil. Quickly add in the chicken to prevent butter from burning. While one side is browning, season the other side with more salt + black pepper. Brown first side for 3.5 minutes, then the other side for 2 minutes. Set the chicken aside. *Pro Tip: For better browning results, brown chicken in 2 batches using the same cooking times.
Saute Garlic & Mushrooms: Add minced garlic, then saute for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add sliced mushroom, season with salt + black pepper, then saute for a minute. Add 2 tsp (2.4g) Italian seasonings, then saute for another minute.
