Instant Pot Chicken Thighs with Potatoes are cooked at the same time in your electric pressure cooker. An easy recipe for beginners to learn to cook two things at the same time.
Carefully remove the steamer basket with the chicken to a plate.
At this point you can either use a potato masher to mash the potatoes right in the pot, or remove them with a slotted spoon and make gravy from the drippings. If you choose to remove them, set them aside and turn on the pot to the sauté mode to make gravy.
Add a cornstarch slurry to the liquid in the pot (mix 2 Tbsp cornstarch and just enough water to make it loose, and whisk it into the hot liquid in the pot). Keep stirring until it thickens.
Add 1/8 tsp Cayenne Powder to the spice mixture for a little kick.
