Juiciest Instant Pot Chicken Ever

2 large chicken breasts

Salt brine (2 quarts of water and 1/3 C of sea salt)

3 T of vegan mayonnaise

1 T diced garlic

1 t cumin powder

Paprika

 

In a bowl, mix up the brine water and add the chicken breasts. Brine for 1 hour. 24 While the chicken is brining, mix mayo, garlic and cumin in a small bowl. After 1 hour, remove the chicken from the brine and pat dry. Using a fork, punch holes in both chicken breasts, as many as possible. Add ½ cup water to the Instant Pot and lay the chicken on the raised trivet. The chicken should not be touching the water. Using a spatula, spread the mayo mixture on both breasts and lightly sprinkle on paprika. Pressure cook for 6 minutes on high pressure. Allow a 10-minute natural release and remove the breasts to a plate, allowing an additional 5-minute resting period.

I love chicken, but hate cooking it because…well, it always comes out dry for me! This will give you amazingly juicy chicken that is sure to be a hit with the family. Add a couple of sides and you’ve got a complete meal.
