  • Total Time: 35 minutes, plus time to marinate
  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 14 oz. bottle Simple Truth Organic Caribbean Jerk Marinade
  • 2 Tbsp. Harris Teeter Olive Oil
  • 1 bunch of scallions, chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper, cubed
  • 1 15 oz. can Simple Truth Organic Lite Coconut Milk
  • 1 cup pineapple chunks
  • 1 cup HT Traders White Basmati Rice (do not substitute brown rice)
  • Garnish with sliced scallions and lime wedges

  1. Add chicken to a resealable gallon-sized bag.  Pour in the jerk marinade and 1 Tbsp. olive oil.  Massage the marinade into the chicken and refrigerate for 30 minutes or up to overnight.

  2. When ready to cook, remove the chicken from the marinade and discard the bag and sauce.

  3. Add the remaining 1 Tbsp. olive oil to a large skillet (that can be fitted with a lid).  Heat the skillet over medium high heat and once piping hot, add the chicken in an even layer.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cook undisturbed for 4-5 minutes, before flipping and cooking for another 4-5 minutes.  Remove the chicken to the plate.

  4. Add the green onions and bell pepper to the skillet and cook for 1-2 minutes.  Add in the coconut milk and rice, stirring well to combine.  Bring to a simmer, then fold in the pineapple.  Add the browned chicken on top.  

  5. Reduce the heat to low, then place the cover on top.  Cook for 20-25 minutes, undisturbed, until most of the liquid is absorbed and the rice is done.  Serve immediately and garnish with scallions and lime wedges, if desired.

Spend an extra hour at the pool, because dinner will be a breeze with this Instant Pot Honey Mustard Chicken recipe.  Serve with a side of steamed broccoli for an easy weeknight family supper this summer.

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 25 minutes
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings

Sauce Ingredients:

  • 2 Tbsp. Simple Truth Organic Mustard
  • 2 Tbsp. Simple Truth Organic Honey
  • ½ Tbsp. Harris Teeter Apple Cider Vinegar
  • ¼ cup Harris Teeter Olive Oil

Meal Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ pounds Harris Teeter Chicken Breast
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. Olive oil
  • 1 cup Harris Teeter Chicken Broth
  • 1 lb. Harris Teeter Baby Red Potatoes, halved
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • Optional: fresh thyme leaves or fresh chopped parsley

Directions:

  1. Whisk together the sauce ingredients in a medium bowl until you reach a smooth and creamy consistency.

  2. Sprinkle 1 tsp. dried thyme, salt, and pepper to taste on the chicken and toss with ¼ cup of the sauce.

  3. Set the Instant Pot to ‘sauté,’ then add ½ Tbsp. olive oil.  Once hot, add the chicken in an even layer and sear for 2-3 minutes without moving.  Flip and sear for an additional 2-3 minutes.  Remove the chicken to a plate. 

  4. Pour the chicken broth into the bowl of the Instant Pot.  Use a wooden spoon to scrape up any browned bits at the bottom of the pot, then return the chicken to the pot.  

  5. In a medium bowl, toss the potatoes with the remaining ½ Tbsp. of olive oil, the remaining thyme, garlic powder, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste.  Layer the potatoes on top of the chicken.

  6. Seal the pot, then set to cook for 7 minutes on high pressure.

  7. After the timer goes off, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.

  8. Plate the chicken and potatoes on a platter and drizzle with the sauce.  Enjoy!

Note: No instant pot? No problem.  Instead of searing in the Instant Pot in step 3, sear on the stove top in a skillet over medium heat, using the same timing. When you remove the chicken, return the skillet to the stovetop and pour in the chicken broth and scrape up any of the stuck on bits.  Add the chicken and broth to the pot of your slow cooker.  Proceed with layering the seasoned potatoes and cook on low in a slow cooker for 6-7 hours.
