  • Tips

    • Recipe Note: Multi-cooker settings and features vary widely across different models and brands.  Refer to the manual for your cooker to learn which functions will produce the cooking methods (saute, pressure cook) needed for this recipe.
  • Step 1

    Season the chicken as desired. Layer the mushrooms, onion, pepper, garlic, chicken, Italian seasoning, sauce and wine in the Instant Pot®.

  • Step 2

    Lock the lid and close the pressure release valve.  Select the Pressure Cook or Manual setting according to which model of Instant Pot® you're using. (If using Manual setting, select High pressure.)  Set the timer to 10 minutes (timer will begin counting down once pressure is reached).  When done, press Cancel and use the quick release method to release the pressure.

  • Step 3

    Season to taste and serve.  Or, if you like a thicker sauce, cook, uncovered, on the Saute setting for 10 minutes or until sauce is thickened.  Serve the chicken and sauce over hot cooked pasta, if desired.
