Plug in the Instant Pot and remove the lid. Press “Sauté” key and wait till it says “Hot” on the screen, now add butter and oil to the steel pot and then immediately add chicken breast and let it sear. Turn the breasts over so the other side gets seared too. Sear the chicken breast until they are not pink anymore and are almost done. Remove the breasts and let them rest.

Once you select the time, wait till it says “ON” on the screen. Now the pressure will build and once the pressure builds, the timer will start counting down from 0.
