Y’all! I may be late to the Instant Pot team, but when I tell you I’m glad that I am here. I’m so glad I made the decision to purchase one and begin using it. It truly saves me so much time in the kitchen. 

When it comes to cooking in the pressure cooker, I do not want to pull out anything else. No other pots or pans. Everything in the Instant Pot. All the ingredients! 

This leads me to the recipe that I will be sharing with you today. It has become a new favorite and I have made it every week for the past month. It is chicken and potatoes with green beans. So delicious and worth giving a try.

Using the handles of the trivet or tongs, carefully remove the chicken, potatoes, and green beans. Serve warm and store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 3 days. 

Tips for making the best instant pot chicken and potatoes with green beans:

  • Place the trivet in the bottom of the instant pot before adding any ingredients
  • May use any kind of potatoes. I’ve also chopped russet potatoes into small pieces and used them as well. 
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper or a little of the ranch seasoning mix. 
  • May substitute chicken breast for chicken thighs. 
  • The same recipe can be completed in a slow cooker using the same process. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours or high 4 hours, depending on your slow cooker.
