Instant Pot Lemon Chicken

15 min
35 min
3-4 servings

Anyone looking for an incredibly easy dinner? That’s pretty healthy for you too? And made in the Instant Pot? Oh good, you came to the right place.

This is Instant Pot Lemon Chicken and you will be super hooked. I added some pasta with a little lemon garlic sauce but you could do this alone, with rice, cauliflower rice, veggies. The chicken turns out super moist (sorry) and full of that lemon flavor.

This comes together in minutes which is a major bonus for dinner. Add this one to your easy dinner list to try. If you do, take a pic and tag #lolohk. I love to see what you are making! Follow me @lolohomekitchen on Instagram and Facebook.
