  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons herbes de Provence
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 8 cloves chopped fresh garlic
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream


  1. Mix oil, mustard, vinegar, salt, pepper, garlic, and herbes de Provence, using a wire whisk to emulsify the oil and vinegar together.
  2. Add in chicken thighs and allow it to marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes. If you need to marinate for longer, put in the refrigerator.
  3. When you are ready to cook, turn on your pressure cooker and using the Sauté button.
  4. When it is hot, add the butter and allow it to melt.
  5. Add chopped garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
  6. Add in the chicken leaving behind as much of the marinade as you can. Do not discard the marinade.
  7. Electric pressure cookers get hotter in the center so allow the chicken thighs to rest toward the center of the container so that they can lightly brown on one side, 3-5 minutes.
  8. Add the marinade and 1/4 cup water.
  9. Cover the pot and allow it to cook on high Pressure for 15 minutes (you can check your specific pot for the accurate cooking time).
  10. Remove the chicken on to a plate and add 1/4 cup cream into the pot, mixing well with the liquid in the pot.
  11. As soon as the sauce thickens, pour it onto the chicken thighs and serve.
