Instant Pot Italian Chicken

Creamy Instant Pot Italian Chicken Breasts are juicy, moist and so easy to make! Tender chicken coated in flavorful creamy sauce with tomato, fresh basil and then served over your favorite pasta. To-die-for!

What You Need

Press Saute on your pressure cooker and let it preheat until display says Hot. In the meantime, let’s season chicken breasts evenly on both sides with salt, pepper and Italian seasoning.


Add olive oil to the bottom of the pot and place as many chicken breasts as you can fit in a single layer and flip easily. Cook each chicken breast until golden brown on each side, 2 minutes per side. Work in batches. Transfer to a plate.


Add chicken broth and whisk it until all browned bits and spices are not sticking to the bottom of the pot. Press Cancel.


Place seared chicken breasts back in Instant Pot, close the lid and set valve to Sealing. Cook chicken for 8 minutes on high pressure, followed by 10 minutes natural release. After turn pressure valve to Venting to release remaining pressure.


Remove cooked chicken onto a plate and Press Saute setting again. Whisk in a cornstarch slurry followed by Parmesan cheese. Keep cooking until sauce has thickened. Turn off the heat.


Slice your juicy chicken breasts against the grain and return them to the pot. Top with diced tomato and fresh basil.
