It’s time to use that Instant Pot for these Instant Pot Maple Chicken & Sweet Potatoes. This is a go-to meal for us!
This Instant Pot Maple Chicken & Sweet Potatoes is the perfect combination for dinner. It’s simple to make with pantry style ingredients, then in just a few short minutes in the Instant Pot, dinner is ready!
I purchased my Instant Pot with the thousands of other consumers around the Thanksgiving holiday, did you get one then too? Guess what? It’s taken me this long to use it!
Now, I will say that I tried it back when I first got it to cook potatoes and it just did not work for me, but I believe it was user-error not necessarily the Instant Pot. I’ve been bound and determined to try it again and finally got the chance.
I was running late last week to get home after my son’s school and that meant dinner was about to be delayed by at least an hour because I still had to get the chicken in the oven.
Thankfully, I thought to myself that would be a great time to try out the Instant Pot and it worked! I decided to add drumsticks, sweet potatoes, and green beans to the Instant Pot, then I topped it with my maple glaze and let it do the work.
Once it was done, it had that taste that it had been in the slow cooker all day and really it had only been 30 minutes.
I was able to get other things done without having to check the oven, then when it came out dinner was perfect! The flavor was delicious because it literally had steamed the maple in the Instant Pot for 30 minutes which made it juicy and tasty.

Simple to Make in the Instant Pot
I’m still trying to figure out how to work it to it’s fullest potential, but I’m on the path and falling in love with it. I made this by simply cooking it on manual for 25 minutes at high pressure, but I’ve also heard you can do the saute method too.
Remember it does take a bit for the steam to build inside so allow a bit of extra time for that too.
