A fast and easy chicken tenderloin recipe that you can make when you don’t have a lot of time. 


  • 20 ounces chicken tenderloins
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3/4 tsp onion powder
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp dried oregano
  • 3/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 Tbsp sour cream


  1. Add chicken into Instant Pot. Drizzle the chicken with olive oil. Toss in the onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, oregano, pepper and salt. Toss well so that chicken is coated in seasonings. Pour in the broth. 
  2. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 4 minutes. When time is up let pot sit for 5 minutes and then move valve to venting. Remove the lid.
  3. Make a cornstarch slurry by stirring together 1 Tbsp cornstarch with 1 Tbsp water until smooth. Turn Instant Pot to saute setting. Stir the slurry into the pot to thicken the sauce. Once it has thickened turn off the pot.
  4. Stir in the lemon juice and sour cream. Season to taste.
  5. Serve and enjoy!
