Instant Pot Buttery Lemon Chicken

Course Main Course


  • 2 lbs. chicken breast or thighs
  • 2 tbsp. ghee or butter
  • 1 onion diced
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 4 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp paprika
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • ½ cup lemon juice (2 lemons)
  • 4 tsp. arrowroot flour


  1. Set the Instant Pot to sauté mode. When it’s hot melt ghee or butter.

  2. Add onion, garlic, paprika, parsley, and pepper to melted ghee, and sauté until onions soften.

  3. With your Instant Pot still set to sauté, sear the chicken on each side for about 3-5 minutes. The chicken should be a caramelized brown color.

  4. Pour chicken brother, lemon juice, and salt over chicken and stir.

  5. Lock lid into place and close steam valve. Set Instant Pot to poultry setting.

  6. Once done, let depressurize naturally – it shouldn’t take very long.

  7. Remove the chicken from the Instant Pot, but leave the sauce in the pan. Gradually stir in arrowroot flour to thicken sauce.

  8. If you’re serving chicken on top pasta, mix cooked pasta in with thickened lemon sauce. Otherwise drizzle sauce over chicken.
