If you did not know, the Instant Pot is the latest must-have kitchen accessory. It is a programmable pressure cooker that will put your standard pressure cooker and crock pot to shame. There are so many things you can cook inside of it, in a very short time. Here are some of our favorite recipes and easy cooking tips.
I have an Instant Pot myself and do things slightly different from this video. I put mine in saute mode, season my chicken, top and bottom, drizzle some oil in the bottom and drop my chicken in when the indicator says hot. After a few minutes, I turn it over and brown both sides of the chicken. After, I switch the pot to Poultry mode. The Instant Pot comes with a metal rack. I remove my chicken, put in the rack, pour in one cup of water, then put the chicken on the rack. Next, I seal the pot closed and set the timer for 30 minutes. Once the timer goes off, I release the pressure. Once the pot has stopped hissing, the chicken can come out. The meat will be so tender and juicy that it will fall off of the bone.

3 Minute Oatmeal
This recipe is super easy and very delicious. You get perfectly cooked oats in just a few minutes. Once it is done cooking, allow it to sit for 20 minutes (natural release) instead of opening the valve. This will allow the oats to finish cooking through and your food will stay hot inside the machine.
