Set your Instant Pot (IP) to saute. Today I am using my 6 qrt duo.
Once the IP is hot, throw in your chopped mushrooms and onions. Saute until onions are translucent and mushrooms are tender.
Meanwhile, take the flour, garlic powder, basil, oregano, parsley and place in a shallow dish or better yet a gallon size ziploc baggie. Mix together, then dip the chicken in to coat both sides. This is where a baggie comes in really handy.. just throw the chicken in and shake until completely coated. And you don’t have to dirty another dish!!
At this point I wish I could say this whole thing can be done in the IP.. and I suppose you could just throw the chicken in. But I don’ t think you will get the best possible flavor that way. What I suggest is, heat a frying pan on the stove, throw in a tsp or so of olive oil and brown both sides, this should only take 2-3 minutes each side. Browning it really adds depth to the flavors and texture of your finished dish.
While the chicken is browning, go ahead and throw the marina sauce, chicken broth, red wine, garlic, half of the Parmesan cheese and a dash of salt and pepper into your pot. Mix everything together.
Put browned chicken into the IP and cover the chicken with that sauce. then close the lid, set to seal and set on manual (high pressure) for 11 minutes.
While this is coming to pressure (about 10 minutes) and cooks you can boil water and cook up some spaghetti noodles for serving. My family loves garlic bread, any chance we get so I’ll probably stick some in the oven to broil for a couple of minutes too!
When cooking is completed, let it Naturally Pressure Release (NPR) at least 5 minutes. * It only took 15 to completely NPR. But if you are a little more pressed for time, go ahead and release the remaining pressure after 5 minutes.
Almost Ready For Dinner
Now just plate up your noodles, the sauce and chicken.
Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese and enjoy!
Happy Instant Potting 🙂
