Instructions

Instant Pot Instructions

  1. Set Instant Pot to regular sauté function. Add olive oil to the pot. Lightly sear the chicken breasts on each side about 2 minutes. Remove the breasts to a plate and set aside. The chicken will not be cooked through, but this is ok.
  2. Add in the celery, carrot, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.  Sauté for 2 minutes or until slightly translucent. Add in small cut potatoes + stir.
  3. Lay the chicken breasts on top of the vegetable/small potato mixture. Add large potato quarters on top of chicken. Pour in broth.
  4. Turn the Instant Pot to High Pressure (manual on older models), sealing and cook for 9 minutes. Allow it to natural release for 5 minutes. Manually release the rest of the pressure after 5 minutes.
  5. Remove the large potato pieces + chicken breasts.
  6. Place large potato quarters, coconut milk + 1/2 cup of broth *from the pot* (a few ladels full!) into a blender until smooth. Add back into the pot
  7. Place chicken breasts on a cutting board and shred.  Put the chicken back into the pot. 
  8. Stir together until combined and smooth. Garnish with parsley and serve.
