Start out by Turning the Instant Pot to Sauté and allow it to heat up. Add 2 TBSP of oil or butter then add the garlic and sauté 2-3 minutes.
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper then add then add them to the Instant Pot and cook for 1-2 minutes on each side.
Add the chicken broth, lemon juice, lemon zest and capers to the Instant Pot.
Close the lid, turn the venting knob to sealing and Cook on HIGH pressure for 3 minutes. Quickly release the pressure when it’s finished cooking.
Remove the chicken and slice. Mix the cornstarch and water then add it to the pot. Add the heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Allow the sauce to thicken for 5 minutes.
