This meal turned out absolutely amazing!!! It was seriously so comforting and delicious! The sauce was certainly not an overwhelmingly mustard flavor at all, and even Robbie, who hates mustard, loved this one. There is not much to the recipe in terms of ingredients or difficulty. If you don't have an Instant Pot you can simply sear the chicken in a stir fry pan then throw everything in a slow cooker. Since I tripled the ingredients to make enough meals for our needs, I had to brown the chicken in three batches before throwing everything in the pot to cook. I increased the Instant Pot to 20 minutes and that was more then enough cook time. Most of the chicken thighs stayed together, but would easily pull apart. This is one recipe that I would not skip out on thickening up the sauce with some added thickener. I usually do a 1:1 when using arrowroot starch, so I stuck to that conversion instead of what was recommended in the recipe. I thought the chicken paired especially well with the roasted sweet potatoes and shaved brussels sprouts. Definitely a meal we will be eating again soon!
