Healthy Chicken Piccata in the Instant Pot (Whole 30 Compliant)
Healthy chicken piccata isn't breaded, but it still has all the flavor of the original. Plus, it's ready in less than 30 minutes using your pressure cooker!
1.5 - 2
boneless skinless chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
reduced-sodium chicken stock (see note)
fresh lemon juice
jar (4 oz) capers, drained
Heat Instant Pot to Saute and add oil. Salt and pepper both sides of the chicken and add to hot Instant Pot. Brown chicken for about 4 minutes on each side and then remove to a plate.
Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly for about 1 minute or until fragrant.
Add broth, lemon juice, oregano, and basil and scrape any brown bits off the bottom of the Instant Pot. Return chicken to Instant Pot and sprinkle capers on top.
Put cover on (make sure vent is turned to “seal”). Set Instant Pot to Manual (or Pressure Cook, depending on the model) for 10 minutes.
Once done, quick release the pressure. Use an instant read thermometer and ensure chicken has an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit.
Serve chicken with sauce in pan.
Note: Many chicken broths and stocks contain sugar or honey. If you’re doing Whole30, make sure to read the label and find one that is compliant. Making your own is always a great option, too!
