Units Scale
  • 1 cup water
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (6 to 8 ounces each)
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon granulated or powdered garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Zest of 1 small lemon (I use a microplane grater to grate off the peel)
  • 2 pounds gold or new potatoes, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 2 to 4 carrots, sliced into 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick pieces (don’t slice them thinner, or they’ll be mushy)
  • 1 small bunch chives, for garnishing potatoes and carrots before serving (or parsley)
  • Butter, for flavoring potatoes and carrots before serving



The broth in the bottom of the Instant Pot is flavorful and tasty; consider serving it with the meal.
