6-8 boneless chicken thighs , skinless or with skin*
sea salt and pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon red chili flakes optional or to taste
2 Tablespoons olive oil
3 Tablespoons butter (swap with ghee for paleo OR Whole30)
1/2 small onion chopped
4 garlic cloves sliced or minced
Juice of 1 lemon
2-4 teaspoons Italian seasoning
zest of half a lemon
1/3 cup homemade or low sodium chicken broth **PLEASE SEE NOTES BELOW
2 Tablespoons heavy cream OR coconut cream
Chopped fresh parsley and lemon slices for garnish , if desired
Instant Pot I have the 6 Quart Instant Pot DUO
OR Cast Iron Skillet

Season the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and chili flakes.
To cook in the Instant Pot:
Press the Sauté function (Normal setting) on the Instant Pot and add the olive oil to the pot. (I use a 6 Quart Instant Pot DUO)
Place chicken in the Instant Pot and cook on each side for 2-3 minutes, or until golden brown. This helps to seal in the juices and keep it tender. (You may have to work in batches depending on the size and amount of chicken you are using). Once browned, remove from Instant Pot and set aside.
Melt butter in Instant Pot and stir in the onions and garlic. Add lemon juice to deglaze pan and cook for 1 minute. Add Italian seasoning, lemon zest, and chicken broth.

Place the chicken back into the Instant Pot, lock the lid, and turn the valve to SEALING.
