1/4 cup Cream or (replace with 4wedges laughing cow cheese)

1. Mix all the ingredients for the marinade Add in chicken thighs and allow it to marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes. If you need to marinate for longer, put in the refrigerator.

3. The Instapot gets hottest in the center so allow the chicken thighs to rest toward the center of the container so that they can lightly brown on one side, 3-5 minutes.

6. Remove the chicken on to a plate and add 1/4 cup cream (laughing cow) into the pot, mixing well with the liquid in the pot.
