The first thing I did was combine a bit of olive oil, dried parsley, dried basil, salt and some black pepper in a small bowl.

Then I rubbed this mixture all over four chicken breasts.

Next I turned the Instant Pot to the Saute Function and added a bit of olive oil.  When it was hot I added the chicken breasts.

I browned the chicken breasts on both sides before removing them and setting them aside.

While the chicken was browning I prepared my broth. I used a powdered broth and boiling water.  

I find using a hot liquid decreases the time it takes for the Pot to come to pressure.

Then I used the broth to deglaze the Pot and scrape any bits from the bottom to avoid the “Burn” message later.

Next I poured in some honey and some mustard.

I stirred quickly to combine them with the broth already in the Pot.

Then I placed the trivet in the Pot and arranged the chicken breasts on top of it.

Finally I added a small bag of baby potatoes and placed them around the chicken breasts.

I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 5 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to Natural Release for 9 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position to finish with a quick release.

When the Instant Pot was almost done with the Natural Release I had prepared a slurry of corn starch and water to thicken the honey mustard sauce.

After removing the chicken and potatoes I turned the Pot back to the Saute Function and stirred in the slurry.

Once the sauce bubbled and thickened I turned the Instant Pot off.

      Excellent recipe. Really great! Perfect level of herbs. A new family favorite, and that’s saying a lot. Pretty presentation with baby yellow, purple, and red potatoes from the garden. Can’t wait to try it with thighs.
      Thanks, Brian
