8 chicken thighs, bone in, skin removed
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons oregano, dried
1 teaspoon olive oil
2 cups jarred green salsa (AKA tomatillo sauce)
cilantro (optional)
jalapeno, chopped (optional)


In a large bowl, toss chicken, vinegar, salt, and oregano. Set the Instant Pot to sauté and add the olive oil. Brown the chicken in two batches about 1 minute per side until opaque. Add all the chicken and the green salsa, cover, and cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. Use a quick release to bring down the pressure.

Serve with cilantro and chopped jalapeno if desired.
