How to Make Instant Pot Chicken Marsala

Prepare to be amazed by the flavors that can be achieved in just a few simple steps. Here’s how you can make Instant Pot Chicken Marsala:

  1. Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning.
  2. Set your Instant Pot to the “saute” function and melt butter with a drizzle of oil.
  3. Sear the seasoned chicken on both sides for 2-3 minutes until golden brown. Remove the chicken from the pot and set it aside.
  4. Add another tablespoon of butter to the pot and sauté the garlic and mushrooms until fragrant and softened. Sprinkle in the remaining Italian seasoning.
  5. Pour in the chicken broth and marsala wine, then add the chicken back into the pot. Secure the lid and set the Instant Pot to “manual” or “pressure cook” on high for 8 minutes.
  6. Once the cooking time is up, carefully release the pressure using the quick-release method. Remove the lid and transfer the chicken to a plate, covering it to keep it warm.
  7. Switch the Instant Pot to the “soup” setting and stir in salt and pepper. In a small bowl, whisk together cold water and cornstarch until dissolved. Add the mixture to the sauce in the Instant Pot, allowing it to thicken. If desired, stir in the heavy cream.
  8. Pour the mushroom sauce over the chicken and serve.
