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.
