small bowl (2)
- 1½ pounds chicken breast
- 3 pounds baby red potatoes
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ¾ teaspoon ground black pepper (more or less to taste)
- 1½ teaspoons garlic powder
- 1½ teaspoon dried thyme
- ½ teaspoon dried basil
- ½ teaspoon dried oregano
- 1 ounce dry ranch dressing mix 1 packet, divided
- 15 ounces chicken broth 1 can
- ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
- ¼ cup butter melted
Add chicken and potatoes to Instant Pot and drizzle with olive oil. Toss chicken and potatoes until they are coated with oil.
In a small bowl, mix together salt, pepper, garlic powder, thyme, basil, oregano, and half of the dry ranch dressing mix. Sprinkle seasonings over chicken and potatoes, then toss gently to coat.
Pour chicken broth into the Instant Pot (try to pour it to the sides of the chicken and potatoes so that you don't rinse off the seasonings).
Place the lid on top of the Instant Pot and set the valve on top to sealing. Press the "MANUAL" button and set the timer for 16 minutes.
Remember that it will take 10-15 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure, so be sure to plan accordingly!
When the Instant Pot is finished cooking, do a "quick release" of the pressure. Remove the chicken and potatoes to a large bowl or serving platter.
In another small bowl, mix together remaining ranch dressing mix, Parmesan cheese, and melted butter. Drizzle butter/seasoning mix over the chicken and serve.
