> 1 lb golden potatoes, scrubbed
> 3 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
> 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
> 3 tbsp olive oil
> 8 sprigs fresh oregano, plus more for garnish, if desired
> 1/2 tsp dried thyme
> 3 cloves garlic, minced
> 1 medium lemon


Halve the potatoes lengthwise. To an Instant Pot®, add the potatoes, chicken, chicken broth, oil, oregano sprigs, thyme, and garlic. Zest and juice entire lemon over mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine.
Seal and set to high pressure. Cook 8 min. Let pressure release naturally for 10 min., then quick release. Arrange chicken and potatoes on a platter. Season with salt and pepper to taste and then spoon some cooking liquid over chicken and potatoes. Garnish with fresh oregano, if desired.

TIP To serve as another meal for 4, reserve half of the chicken and roughly chop. In a large bowl, toss chicken with 1 (5 oz) container Nature’s Promise Organic Baby Butter Lettuce; 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved; and 2 mini cucumbers, thinly sliced. Toss with ¼ cup balsamic vinaigrette. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
