These are 9 of the best recipes for Instant Pot chicken thighs. I love to cook with and eat chicken thighs. I also love my Instant Pots. No, that isn’t a typo. I have 2 Instant Pots and my mother has 2 Instant Pots. I like how I can just throw the ingredients in and come back later and my meal is cooked. I love how easily and quickly it is to cook Instant Pot chicken thighs.
I also love the versatility of chicken. Chicken thighs are my favorite because they are dark meat. I like how dark chicken meat is moister than chicken breasts. It also has more flavor because it has a little bit more fat on it. Chicken thighs are less expensive too so that’s another plus.
I like how an Instant Pot meal is basically a one-pot meal. There are a lot of advantages to that, less dishes, no side dishes, easy etc.

Instant Pot Chicken Thighs
1. Chicken and Rice – A Pinch of Healthy
This is an easy peasy meal to throw together and make on a week night when you want a good healthy easy meal. It’s bound to please everyone in the whole family no matter what their tastes are. I love Jasmine rice, it’s my favorite kind of rice. If you’ve never eaten it you really should give it a try.
2. Peri Peri Chicken – It’s A Keeper
A lot of the recipes here are a little spicy which I love, but I know some people who don’t like spicy food. My dad is one of them. He would really like this because it isn’t one of those spicy hot meals. Yet it still has a lot of flavors in it. It’s bound to please also.
3. Asian Sticky Ginger Chicken Thighs – The Kitchen Whisperer
This would be great with some rice and or salad of your choice. Vegetables are always good, I love my veggies. What would you serve with this sticky chicken? Something Asian like snow peas and rice? This is a little Asian style spicy so if you think it’s too hot just use less sriracha and ginger.
4. Mississippi Chicken – Recipes That Crock
Now this is what I call an easy to make meal. It’s already easy because it’s made in the Instant Pot but it’s also super easy because all you do is open a bottle, a can and a couple packages and throw it all in the pot together. I like to use the boneless frozen thighs from Costco so even the chicken is easy. I cook mine in the Instant pot frozen all the time. I might add a couple minutes to the cooking time is all.
5. Easy Barbecue Chicken Thighs – Instantly Delicious
I love BBQ chicken and this has got to be a really simple way to make it. Just follow the directions and you can’t go wrong. What do you eat with BBQ chicken? I like baked potatoes or homemade fries and a nice green salad. Sometimes I like to make roasted veggies instead of the salad. I basically roast my homemade fries so I could cook them all at the same time. That would save a lot of time wouldn’t it? I think roasted veggies are easier to make than salad. I don’t like to make salad. There are too many things to cut up.
6. Easy Green Chili With Chicken – Serious Eats
I remember the first time I ever ate green chilies. I went to visit a relative of my sisters with her. She put a can of green chilies in the tuna fish for a tuna sandwich. Before that I didn’t know green chilies existed. I actually like the flavor it added to the tuna but I’ve never made it since. In case you couldn’t tell my mom and grandmother aren’t into hot spicy Mexican food. But I sure am, I love it. This looks really good to me.
7. Honey Garlic Chicken – Nurse Loves Farmer
Chicken Thighs – Honey – Ketchup – Soy Sauce – Garlic – Corn Starch
This is really easy to make too. In case you couldn’t tell I choose the recipes that are easy to make for this blog. I don’t know anyone that really likes to spend their whole day in the kitchen. There are so many other things to do with our time. Sometimes I just like to get my tummy filled up and get on with my life. Don’t get me wrong, I like to cook sometimes. But other times I don’t so I like quick easy recipes like this one.
8. Lemon Garlic Butter Chicken Thighs – Spoonful of Flavor
I love lemon chicken! I have my own Lemon Chicken Recipe that I love but it isn’t made in the Instant Pot. I’m really anxious to try this one and see if I like it as much as mine. You should try them both and let me know which one you prefer. I’d try be interesting to know. I’d definitely serve this with rice and veggies.
9. Creamy Wild Rice and Chicken Soup – 365 Days of Slow Cooking
Chicken and rice soup is something I love. Personally, I can’t eat pasta so chicken noodle soup is out for me. So I do eat a lot of chicken and rice soups. This one looks delicious and I know it’s going to be pretty quick in the Instant Pot. You don’t even cook the rice separately. You just throw it in the pot and cook it with all the other ingredients.
