Step 1

Preheat the sauté function on the Instant Pot at the highest setting, and add oil to the pot.

Step 2

Season one side of the chicken breasts.

Step 3

After the display reads "hot," carefully add the chicken breasts, seasoned side down, to the pot. I use tongs to avoid hot oil splatter.

Step 4

Add seasoning on the second side.

Step 5

Cook about 3 to 4 minutes on each side, and remove from pot with the tongs.

Step 6

Add 1 cup water to the pot (may need more for 8 quart pots), plus the trivet.

Step 7

Place the chicken on the trivet.

Step 8

Lock the lid, and cook on manual high for 5 minutes.

Step 9

Allow the chicken to naturally release for 5 minutes, and then quick release the rest.

Step 10

Remove the chicken from the pot, and allow to rest for about 5 minutes before serving for maximum juiciness.
