–chicken legs – olive oil –chicken rub – water or chicken broth –barbecue sauce


Brush the chicken legs with olive oil.

Sprinkle the dry rub evenly on the chicken legs. Use your fingers to push the rub into the chicken.

Add one cup of water into the bottom of the Instant Pot and insert the trivet. Place the chicken legs in a single layer on top of the trivet.Set the Instant Pot on high pressure for 10 minutes.

Let it go on natural release for another 10 minutes. Then, do a quick release to remove any remaining pressure in the pot before removing the lid.

Brush one side of each leg with your favorite BBQ sauce and put the pan of chicken under your broiler for a few minutes, supervising it to ensure nothing burns.

Once the top side looks crispy, pull the legs out, flip them, add BBQ sauce to the other side, and repeat. This extra step will give you deliciously crispy skin on your chicken.
