  • Kinds of chicken that works: thighs, breast, drumsticks, cut up whole chicken.
  • For frozen chicken keep same cook time, make sure chicken pieces are separated and know Instant Pot will take longer to come to pressure.
  • Russet potatoes will fall apart more - use if you like more chicken stew like dish.
  • Yellow, red and especially baby potatoes will stay whole better.
  • If you really want your potatoes to stay whole as much as possible, place chicken on a trivet and potatoes on top so they are not sitting in liquid.
  • Substitute rosemary with dried oregano, thyme or Italian seasoning.
  • If you don't have fresh herbs, it will still be delicious with dried herbs
