The perfect quick & easy weeknight dinner!What is it about dinner that you can eat with your hands that makes meal time so fun? These Pressure Cooker Chicken Drumsticks were a total hit with the fam! Of course they grumble when I hand them a napkin at the end of the meal and inevitably tell them to go wash their faces, but I think they just enjoy dinners like this one.Chicken drumsticks have been one of their favorite things as well, I think because they’re perfectly kid-sized. I remember loving them myself when we had them as a kids. They’re great on the grill, too, but nothing beats how easy it is to throw these ingredients in the pressure cooker and let it do the work for me!How to make Pressure Cooker Chicken Drumsticks:You might be tempted to skip the sauté-step in the beginning, but don’t – it really creates a sear on the drumsticks and seals in the juices and the flavor of the chicken. Be sure to use an ample amount of olive oil to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pot. If your pressure cooker doesn’t have a sauté function, just do that step on the stove top in a medium sized frying pan and then transfer the drumsticks to the pressure cooker at that point.If you like this recipe for Pressure Cooker Chicken Drumsticks, be sure to leave a rating and a comment below this post!Recipe PrintPressure Cooker Chicken DrumsticksThese Pressure Cooker Chicken Drumsticks are done in no time at all!
