In this recipe, we use bone-in thighs because we enjoy dark meat. You can try this recipe with other cuts of chicken, you may just need to adjust cooking times.
We cook this chicken under high pressure for 30 minutes because we want fall off the bone chicken that is super easy to shred. If you want your chicken to be less tender, reduce cooking times to 25 minutes.
We've tested this recipe in a 6 quart Instant Pot and 6.5 quart Ninja Foodi. When pressure cooking with larger pressure cookers, you may need to add 1/2 cup to 1 cup more liquid to reach pressure. Make sure not to overfill smaller pressure cookers past their max lines.
