Cook on manual high pressure for 8 minutes and once done use the quick release function. Remove chicken and potatoes and cover to keep warm and set aside.
Add onion and kale to the pot. Close the lid and set to sealing and cook on manual high pressure for 3 minutes. Use the quick release function when done.
Slice the chicken and divide on four plates along with potatoes and kale.
If desired, you can thicken up the sauce at this point: Press the saute function. Add 1 teaspoon of arrowroot to a small bowl and scoop out some of the balsamic liquid and whisk it with the arrowroot to create a slurry. Return it to the pot and let cook until it has thickened, about 1 minute. Drizzle over the chicken and potatoes and serve hot!
You do not need to thicken this sauce up, this step can be skipped and the sauce served as is. But if you prefer to have a thick sauce to coat you can use the arrowroot option. The amount of arrowroot you need will vary depending on how much liquid remains in the pot at the end (this varies). If 1 teaspoon is not enough you can add 1 teaspoon at a time as instructed until it's reached your desired consistency.
If your chicken has cooled too quickly in between steps, place back in the pot when thickening up the sauce to warm up briefly.
