Instructions

  1. Drizzle your cooking oil into the Instant Pot bowl and press the Sauté button. Let the oil heat up for about two minutes.
  2. Place the onion and chicken in the pot and use a wooden spoon or spatula to move it around. Add the thyme, garlic powder, cinnamon, salt, and pepper.
  3. Cancel the sauté function and add the water, chopped sweet potatoes, and tomatoes, and stir to combine.
  4. Lock on the lid and set the cooking time to 8 minutes on high pressure.
  5. When the cooking time is up, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure. Remove the lid and stir in the cilantro and lemon or lime juice.
  6. Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in a tightly-sealed container for up to 4 days.

Notes

This dish will keep up to several months in the freezer in a tightly-sealed container.
