You can get incredible tender smoky chicken from the Instant Pot... you'll swear these drumsticks spent hours in a smoker! This recipe is nightshade free and appropriate for people on AIP.
Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Barbecue
Serves: 4 servings
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the broth, honey, molasses, Sweet & Smoky BBQ Rub, and apple cider vinegar.
  2. Put drumsticks in Instant Pot in a single layer. Pour sauce over drumsticks and lock lid in place.
  3. Set to cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.
  4. Allow pot to release pressure naturally for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler element in your oven.
  5. Release rest of pressure and remove lid. Carefully remove chicken and place on a sheet pan, trying to arrange chicken so the sides with most of the skin are facing up. Put under broiler for 5 minutes to crisp the skin (watch carefully so it doesn't burn).
  6. Meanwhile, turn Instant Pot to sauté so sauce can boil and thicken slightly.
  7. Remove chicken from oven and transfer to a serving platter. Either pour sauce over, or pour into a bowl and pass at the table.
