This Instant Pot honey mustard chicken is so simple, made with ingredients that you probably already have in your kitchen, and perfect to make on the busiest weeknights!
I’m one of these people that try to eat homecooked food as much as possible. Both my husband and I love cooking and eat in all the time, except for times when we really want to go out for a nice dinner or want to check out a newly opened restaurant in town.
Meal prep makes it easier for us to stay on track, and eat healthy meals at home. But sometimes, things get in the way and I get tired of cooking. You know the feeling when you just want to get a takeaway and eat in front of the TV? Sometimes that becomes an excuse to eat lots of junk food and can happen a few times a week. So to avoid that, I started experimenting with really easy recipes that I can make in my Instant Pot.
IP recipes are a life changer! You guys have no idea how much do I love my Instant Pot, and honestly, I don’t know what I would do without it!
So this Instant Pot honey mustard chicken is a great example. Easy and quick recipe, very simple ingredients, healthy and tastes amazing!

HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT HONEY MUSTARD CHICKEN
For this recipe, you can use a skinless chicken breast and cut it into cubes (you’ll have to reduce the cooking time), but I strongly recommend that you get boneless thighs with skin. You’ll get incredible flavors and the chicken will be juicy.
Start by clicking on the “saute” mode for 10 minutes. Heat vegetable oil, season the chicken thighs and brown them. The chicken will release juices as it cooks and this will be used for the sauce.
Add water to “deglaze” the pan (you can skip this step), then add the rest of the sauce ingredients. Garlic, honey, and mustards.
Throw in the potatoes and the carrots. I use new baby potatoes, but regular potatoes can work if diced to smaller chunks.
Season with more salt and pepper, cover with the lid and make sure that the valve is in sealing position.
Click on manual or pressure cooking, high pressure, and cook for 6 minutes.
When the cooking is finished, quickly release the steam and carefully open the lid. Garnish with chopped parsley and serve.
