  4. Once all of the chicken is browned, add in 1 cup of water to the pan. From there, set the instant pot back to sauté and wash away the brown on the pan. Toss the brown out and then add the pot back in the instant pot.
  5. Slip the trivet in the pan that’s in the pot and spray the area with a bit of Pam. This will prevent the chicken from sticking.
