Instant Pot Garlic Lime Chicken

This Garlic Lime Chicken will sure bring you a sweet and sour taste! The seasonings, lemon juice, and lime sure make this chicken recipe delicious!

If you have ever had chicken like me and you know what you usually like on your chicken then why not try a new recipe. I decided to add lime in mine to make it a little more sour. I love sweet and sour flavors. Whenever I making chicken I add in some of my favorite seasonings such as basil, seasoning salt, and garlic. If I am eating chicken I want to have as much flavor as possible. I especially love using the instant pot as it only took 3 minutes to cook.

This recipe is weight watcher friendly and only 2 points per serving. This recipe should be 4 servings. Instead of using lime in this recipe you can also use some cut up lemon. Enjoy this chicken with mashed potatoes, rice, and or some broccoli on the side.

Instant Pot Garlic Lime Chicken Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil: Use just enough to coat the bottom of pan. Also you can use any kind of olive oil you want.
  • 1 Cup of Chicken Broth: This also gives some nice flavor for your chicken.
  • 2 tbsp of Butter: This is for the pan to help not make everything stick to the bottom.
  • 3 tbsp of Lemon Juice: This gives the chicken more flavor as it can soak up the chicken.
  • 1 tsp of Oregano: If you would rather use rosemary, this is also a good seasoning for chicken.
  • 1 tsp of basil: I use basil because it is one of my favorite seasonings to use on chicken.
  • 1 tbsp of flour: this is to thicken the sauce up.
  • 1 lime sliced: This adds a more sour taste to your chicken. If you would rather use 1 lemon sliced, that will work as well.
  • A pinch of parsley: I always like adding parsley as a garnish.
