2poundsbaby potatoes, washed and the bigger potatoes halved; small ones can stay wholeI used baby red potatoes
1½teaspoon dried rosemary
1teaspoon dried oregano
½cup low sodium chicken broth OR water
Press the 'sauté' button on the Instant Pot and add 4 tablespoons of butter. Heat until almost melted and then press the 'cancel' button.
Add potatoes, garlic, rosemary, oregano, thyme, salt and pepper. Stir thoroughly to combine. You want to make sure that each potato is covered in the butter mixture. Add chicken or water (no need to stir).
Cover, place into lock position, and make sure the valve is in the sealing position. Press the 'manual' button and cook for 5 minutes. Remember that it will take the IP about 15 minutes to come to pressure and then the time will start counting down.
Once timer goes off, do a quick release by turning the valve to the venting position and letting steam release until the pin drops. I like to place a folded kitchen towel over the valve so that it catches the steam. **It's important to do quick release to stop the potatoes from cooking, as they will go from tender to mushy in a matter of minutes**
Drain the liquid from the Instant Pot, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, and stir until melted. Season with salt and pepper, if needed.
