In this recipe, we’ll show you how to cook chicken and quinoa together in your Instant Pot for an easy weeknight chicken and quinoa instant pot meal!


Chicken Water Thyme and sage Salt and pepper Onion Olive oil Quinoa Liquid gold broth  Salt

Brown the onion in the pot with olive oil using the Sauté setting.

To continue making this a fabulous chicken and quinoa instant pot meal, deglaze the pot with the water.

Set the trivet inside the pot and then place the chicken on top.  Add the citrus peel and herbs,  I simply wrapped the peel around the herbs here, nothing fancy needed.

Select the Manual setting and program the pot so that you cook the chicken for about 5 minutes per pound. So a 4.5 pound chicken would cook for  22 -23 minutes.
