  • ½ cup chicken broth (affiliate)
  • ¼ cup apple juice
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar (affiliate)
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons butter (affiliate)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the chicken broth, apple juice, lemon juice, and all spices.
  2. Add the chicken thighs to your electric pressure cooker/instant pot and pour liquid ingredients over top.
  3. Lock lid and set to high pressure for 9 minutes. When time is up, let pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then release all remaining pressure.
  4. Remove chicken and broth from pot into a large bowl.
  5. In the pot on the sauté setting, melt butter then whisk in flour until a smooth roux forms. Slowly pour chicken cooking liquid back in and stir until a smooth gravy is formed.
  6. Add chicken back into the pot, stir to coat, then serve over rice.
