Ingredients

Mustard Crust:

  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Tabasco hot pepper sauce
  • 1 teaspoon herbes de Provence
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Chicken:

  • 3 1/2 lb. chicken
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (for coating bottom of pan)
  • 1/4 cup white wine

  • Using kitchen shears or a sharp knife, cut along both sides the backbone of the chicken to split it open and remove the backbone. Spread and press on the chicken with your hands to flatten it.

  • Place chicken in a bowl large enough to rest flat. Salt and pepper both the underside and the skin side of the chicken. Pour crust mixture over the chicken making sure both sides are coated well.
  • Turn on your Instant Pot to Sauté and set time for 8 minutes. Add the olive oil to your Instant Pot to coat the bottom of pan. When heated put the chicken in SKIN SIDE DOWN.

  • When sauté function turns off remove the chicken to a plate and deglaze the pan with the white wine being sure to scrape all browned bits off the bottom. Add the warm chicken broth.
  • Place the chicken SKIN SIDE UP on the trivet and place into the Instant Pot.
