  • Season the skin of the chicken thighs with poultry seasoning along with salt and pepper. Add a little olive oil to the bottom of the Instant Pot and place it on sauté. Once the oil starts to warm up add your chicken thighs skin side down.
  • Cook for 3-4 minutes or until you have some lovely colour on your skin and its starting to crisp up.
  • Turn off the Instant Pot, remove the chicken thighs and peel and dice your root vegetables. Dice some baby potatoes into quarters.
  • Add the potatoes and the root vegetables to the Instant Pot.
  • Add the chicken stock.
  • Layer the chicken thighs skin side up on top of the potatoes and vegetables.
  • Place the lid on the Instant Pot, set the valve to sealing and cook for 12 minutes on manual.
  • Use quick pressure release and remove the chicken thighs.
  • Remove ¼ of the stock from the bottom and with the remainder add a gravy thickener and stir until the chicken thigh casserole is lovely and thick.
  • 10. Serve while still warm.


We bought a pack of 750g chicken thighs. This worked out at 5 medium sized chicken thighs. Here is info of who we recommend.
For a gravy thickener we like this one the best and it does what it says on the tin! For a good chicken stock that will enhance your chicken thigh casserole and give it the ultimate flavour, then this ONE is the best.
