Instant Pot Bacon Dijon Chicken Recipe

Instant Pot Bacon Dijon Chicken Recipe
If you’re lucky enough to go to France, make sure you pick up several jars of Dijon mustard; French mustard is much stronger than that sold in the US and also much better. If you can’t get to France, however, purchase a good brand at the grocery store that has been imported from France. Although any kind of Dijon mustard you happen to have on hand will work in Instant Pot Bacon Dijon Chicken, the real stuff will make your dish even better.


This quick and easy chicken is different, in that it is creamy, but doesn’t have any cream in it, and also has crunchy bacon. As long as you have cooked the bacon crisp, the short cooking time insures that it will stay crisp. This is extra good over rice, but is also good next to baked or mashed potatoes.
