Fast and easy is what you’re looking for…BBQ CHICKEN THIGHS in the INSTANT POT is the answer!  It’s also keto-compliant, which makes it ABSOLUTE PERFECTION.  It is inspired by a similar recipe found on Pinterest by blogger Confessions of a Fit Foodie.  Of course, I have made my own alterations to the recipe making it perfect for our household’s taste.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Yields 4 servings


1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs

1/2 cup BBQ sauce (our favorite is Rib Rack Original)

2 tbsp McCormick’s Mesquite Seasoning


  1. Put the chicken thighs in the Instant Pot.  (No trivet, just put directly in the bottom of the pan.)
  2. Add BBQ sauce and mix into chicken well.  Then spread chicken out on the bottom of the pan best you can.
  3. Sprinkle seasoning on top of each piece of chicken.
  4. Put the lid on and close the valve.
  5. Set to MANUAL HIGH PRESSURE for 10 minutes.
  6. Quick release and serve with your favorite veggie!

(We usually serve with Bacon-wrapped Stuffed Asparagus.  BONUS – it’s perfect for leftovers!)
