Garlic White Wine Instant Pot Chicken Thighs (Gluten Free, Keto)

Do you have a favorite part of the chicken that you use over and over again in multiple recipes?

For me, my favorite are chicken thighs.

Meaty, tender and full of flavor, what's not to love?

So when Draper Valley Farms, a Pacific Northwest company (PNW pride!), contacted me about showcasing their ROXY™ Organic Chicken thighs in a recipe featuring other local ingredients, you know that I was all about that!

While I raise chickens myself (in fact I wrote a whole book about it! Check out my book about chicken keeping here.), I'm only raising the hens in my backyard for eggs.

Since I'm not raising my own meat chickens at home, I love that Draper Valley raises their ROXY™ organic chickens in a reduced-stress, free-range environment and feeds them non-GMO, organic feed right here in the Pacific Northwest.

And since recycling and sustainability are also Northwest traditions, I especially love that ROXY™ the Organic Chicken is packaged on recyclable trays so we can reduce how much of our food-related waste is going to the landfill!

Local Pacific Northwest Ingredients

Not only is ROXY™ the Organic Chicken from the beautiful, Pacific Northwest, but some of my key ingredients are as well!

One of my main flavors for the dish, garlic, is hyperlocal and an homage to our local garlic festival that happens every summer.

Our garlic festival has garlic EVERYTHING - including garlic ice cream!

Don't worry, I didn't make garlic chicken ice cream.

But I do combine a generous helping of garlic (12 cloves!) with sea salt and dry herbs to make a yummy coating for the chicken before cooking it in the Instant Pot.

In fact, every single ingredient on this list is a local Pacific Northwest ingredient except the lemon.

This healthy keto Instant Pot chicken thigh recipe is perfect for boneless chicken thighs. The recipe is dead easy and creates a delicious white wine lemon garlic sauce that you can serve over veggies or pasta (if you aren't whole 30 or keto). Recipe is gluten free, keto, paleo and whole 30. #creativegreenliving #creativegreenkitchen #instantpot #chickenthighrecipe #ketorecipe #whole30 #paleochickenrecipe


About this Instant Pot Chicken Thighs Recipe

In this recipe, I'll teach you how to combine some of the best flavors from the Pacific Northwest (plus a lemon!) to make juicy chicken thighs in the most amazing sauce.

This garlic white wine sauce is nothing short of epic.

It's the perfect combination of fat, salt and flavor and you will absolutely want to save it to put it on all the things.

Like all Creative Green Living recipes since 2015, this recipe is naturally gluten-free, low carb and keto-friendly.

Now, if you aren't low carb or keto, my favorite way to serve this dish is on a pile of GF spaghetti or angel hair that has been tosed in the sauce and topped with the chicken thighs and mushrooms.

The sauce is also amazing on zoodles, steamed broccoli, mashed potatoes (not low carb/keto), sauteed zucchini or roasted radishes (if you're into those).

All that to say: SAVE THE SAUCE

You'll definitely want to use it to dress whatever your side dish is.

Directions

Keto Instant Pot Garlic Chicken Thighs Step 1: Create the Flavor Coating

Before putting the chicken in the Instant Pot, we are going to create a flavorful low carb coating featuring our signature flavor, garlic.

To do this, combine 2 teaspoons sea salt, 1 teaspoon ground black pepper and 2 Tablespoons dry thyme leaves in a small bowl.

Sprinkle about half of the herb coating onto a small salad plate and shake it to make an even layer of spices across the surface of the plate.

On a second salad plate, combine 12 crushed garlic cloves with 2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil until well mixed. Spread in a single layer on the salad plate.

Keto Instant Pot Garlic Chicken Thighs Step 2: Flavor-ize

To flavorize our ROXY™ Organic Chicken Thighs, unwrap the first tray and working one at a time, get a chicken thigh, rub it in the garlic and oil mix until one side is well coated (use a fork or spoon if needed to get some good chunks of garlic stuck to the thigh.

Next, dip the garlicky thigh in the thyme mix so it creates a crust on the top.

Put the crusted thigh on a plate and keep working through the rest of the tray.

After the first four pieces, you will be out of thyme mixture on your plate but you still have half in that small bowl you set aside!

Sprinkle the remaining thyme blend onto the plate and keep working to finish the second tray of ROXY™ Organic Chicken Thighs.

You should have a dinner plate full of garlicked, crusted thighs ready to go into the Instant Pot.

Remember: The trays these come on are recyclable, so rinse it well and then put it in your recycling bin instead of the trash!

Keto Instant Pot Garlic Chicken Thighs Step 3: Sauce base

Set your Instant Pot to saute and melt 2 Tablespoons of butter in the bottom of the cooking pot.

Once the butter is melted, add 1/2 cup of diced onion and saute for 2 - 3 minutes.

Keto Instant Pot Garlic Chicken Thighs Step 4: Load up the Instant Pot

Use tongs to transfer the crusted chicken thighs one at a time to the Instant Pot.

They should all fit in one layer on the bottom of the cooking pot if you are using a pot with a 6 quart capacity or higher).

Add 8 ounces (or more if you love mushrooms!) of baby portabello mushrooms to the Instant Pot along with 3/4 cup of white wine like a chardonnay.

When the Instant Pot is done cooking, allow the pressure drop naturally (takes about 10 minutes) before opening the lid.

Keto Instant Pot Garlic Chicken Thighs Step 6: Serve

To serve your keto Instant Pot ROXY™ Organic Chicken Thighs, remove the thighs and mushrooms from the Instant Pot with tongs. Halve the lemon and generously squeeze one half over the cooked chicken.

Use the remaining sauce in the Instant Pot to toss with GF pasta, mashed potatoes, sauteed zucchini, your favorite steamed or roasted veggie or whatever the heck you're serving it with.

After serving, top with another squeeze of lemon if desired.

Grated parmesan is another delicious keto and gluten-free topping you can pair with this dish as well!
