You will love serving this fine dining chicken dish for 2. You can double the recipe which will take a little longer to prepare because you have to brown only 2 breasts at a time. The pressure cooking time will be the same as with 2 portions.

Suggested accompaniments: baked or mashed potatoes, white or brown rice, broccoli, green beans, peas.

Note that the cooking time takes into account the time the Instant Pot takes to start cooking as well as the cooking and resting time before releasing pressure.
