Lemon Chicken Dinner
Ingredients:

  • 2 Chicken breasts
  • 1-2 T. Olive oil
  • 2 T. Flour
  • 1/2 t. Salt
  • 1/2 Lemon, sliced
  • 1 1/2 T. Brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 T. Ketchup
  • 1/2 T. White vinegar
  • 1/2 t. Lemon zest
  • 1/2 Lemon, juiced
  • 1/3 c. Frozen lemonade concentrate

Instructions:

Mix together salt and flour, coat chicken. Pour oil into Instant Pot liner. Arrange lemon slices in single layer in bottom of pot. Place chicken breasts on top of lemon slices and turn pot on ‘saute’. Brown chicken on both sides while singeing lemons into chicken. When done browning, place chicken breasts into stainless steel or ovenproof bowl that fits in Instant Pot. Mix remaining ingredients together to make sauce and pour over chicken. You can discard the lemon slices or use them on top of the chicken dish for presentation. You can add your choice of fresh vegetables to this bowl at this time, if you like, such as green beans, broccoli, asparagus, etc.

Next, in bottom of Instant Pot, with pan drippings, add 1 cup of rinsed, white jasmine rice and 1 1/2 cups of water. Stir and place rack inside of pot and place bowl with chicken, sauce, and vegetables on top of rack. Place lid on Instant Pot with vent in sealing position and press the ‘rice’ button to steam your whole meal. When program is complete, your entire meal is ready.

I’ve included the thermometer reading in the photo so that you could see for yourself that the chicken more than reached proper temperature for poultry even in this short of time.
