Instant Pot Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs


This Instant Pot Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs recipe is SO good and SO easy, IDK what else to say about it. Oh, yah – it’s fahkin’ delicious.

Instant Pot Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs


  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • One teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 4 6-8 ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • One teaspoon arrowroot starch


  1. Heat Instant Pot on saute setting until the pot is warm
  2. Combine honey, water, and yellow mustard and whisk until fully incorporated
  3. Add chicken thighs – try not to overlap, spread evening across the bottom of the pot
  4. Seal and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes, or ten if your thighs are semi-frozen, or 12 if they’re frozen
  5. Quick-release
  6. Remove the chicken and set aside on a plate
  7. Mix 1 teaspoon of arrowroot starch to 1 tablespoon of water. Add to the honey mustard sauce in the instant pot and turn on saute. Allow to boil and thicken for 2-3 minutes whisking occasionally
  8. Add chicken back to instant pot and coat with sauce, allow to simmer for 2-3 additional minutes

This recipe is on ROTATION, and for a good reason. They are MOIST in the best way, okey. I serve with white rice and green beans, but you can do literally whatever you want.

I hope you enjoy!


Note: If you do not have an instant pot, make chicken thighs as you otherwise would, and then make the sauce in a saucepan on the stovetop as directed. Combine with cooked chicken to coat, and allow to simmer. It’ll taste just as great.
