  • Put in all ingredients except peanut butter into your Instant Pot and set your cooker to High Pressure for 10 minutes. I used a frozen block of chicken thighs which took about 15 minutes, so just adjust cooking time based on what cut of meat you’re using.
  • Allow it to release pressure naturally and open the lid carefully.
  • Mix in the peanut butter a little at a time. Taste with each addition as your reward for cooking. Taste the peanut butter too, make sure it’s good stuff.
  • Serve hot and enjoy!
