Instant Pot Greek Chicken

This Instant Pot Greek Chicken delivers a gorgeous presentation with promises of a delicious and crispy reward that partners well with Tzatziki sauce. The chicken remains extremely tender and full of marinated juice and once removed from the broiler the aroma will turn your house into a home. The chicken keeps well in the refrigerator but is best enjoyed fresh from the Instant Pot broiler. Serve with your favorite greek style salad and have a well balanced Mediterranean meal.
