Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 bone-in chicken thighs (3 pounds), skin removed if desired
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 can (14 ounces) water-packed quartered artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1/2 cup pimiento-stuffed olives
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1-1/2 cups orange juice
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • GREMOLATA:
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

  • In a shallow bowl, mix flour, garlic salt and pepper. Dip chicken thighs in flour mixture to coat both sides; shake off excess.
  • Select saute setting on a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker and adjust for medium heat; add oil. In batches, brown the chicken on all sides.
  • Sprinkle garlic, lemon zest, thyme and rosemary over chicken. Top with artichoke hearts, olives and bay leaf. In a bowl, mix orange juice, broth and honey; pour over top. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 15 minutes. Allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes and then quick-release any remaining pressure. Remove bay leaf.
