  • 2lbs boneless chicken thighs
  • 2 cups honey bbq sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 12 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne
  • 3 Tbl brown sugar
  • 3 Tbl honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper


  1. Pat dry the thighs dry. Add the thighs into the 6qrt Electric Pressure Cooker .
  2. In a bowl whisk together the sauce, water, paprika, cayenne, brown sugar, honey, salt and pepper. Pour over thighs.Lock the lid down and set it to High pressure, 10 minutes.
  3. When the 10 minutes is up do a quick release. While the quick release is relieving pressure, place the oven to broil with a rack in the middle. Line a rimmed pan with foil and place a cooling rack on top. Lightly spray the rack.
  4. Gently remove the thighs from the pressure cooker with tongs and place on the rack. Set the pressure cooker to browning. Place the thighs in the oven and broil for 5-7 minutes each side. While the thighs are in the oven stir the sauce until thickened ~10-15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and slather on some sauce on top of the thighs. Return to the broiler for 5 minutes.
  5. Flip the thighs over, cover with more sauce and broil for 5 more minutes or until they are nicely charred. Place the sauce in a container for serving. Store any leftovers in the fridge.
