How to broil the chicken leg quarters

It’s not mandatory, but I really recommend you to broil the chicken after cooking in the pressure cooker.

I’m using my Instant Pot Air fryer Lid, but feel free to use Mealthy Crisplid or Instant Pot Duo crisp.

You can also keep it simple and just place the chicken under the broiler.

That way you will get tender crispy chicken that all your guests are gonna like!
