These succulent, tender, sweet & spicy glazed Instant Pot BBQ chicken thighs will convert even die-hard “white meat only” folks.
Of all the chicken recipes I’ve made lately, these Instant Pot BBQ chicken thighs are a current favorite. They are crazy easy to make, and they are so much more tender and moist than the typical oven baked chicken.
One of my daughters has always refused to eat dark meat, but she ate half of on of these thighs before she knew it wasn’t a breast. She admitted that it was delicious, and said that the flavor and texture of the meat reminded her of my baby back ribs.

Now back to chicken. I’ve made this Instant Pot BBQ chicken with breasts (bone-in/skin-on as well as boneless skinless) and thighs (bone-in/skin-on), and hands down the thighs are better. The breast meat is neither as tender nor as flavorful as the thigh meat, but for those who just won’t eat dark meat, by all means use breasts.
BBQ sauce is strictly to your preference. I use equal parts Dreamland BBQ sauce (spicy) with Bob Gibson’s or another sweet leaning BBQ sauce.

These Instant Pot BBQ chicken thighs are perfect for a quick & easy weeknight meal. When I made these yesterday, I served them with Mississippi green beans, roasted zucchini & yellow squash, and Simply Potatoes mashed potatoes. Easy and delish!
Let me know if you try the chicken; I’d love to hear what you think (and especially if you convert a “white meat only” family member:-)
As always, thanks so much for stopping by. Be blessed, and stay savvy!!!
