Creamy Italian Chicken for a quick flavorful meal the whole family will love!
Ingredients You'll Need
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 cup chicken broth
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup chopped roasted red peppers
1 1/2 tablespoon corn starch
1 tablespoon basil pesto
Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the Instant Pot. Add broth and sprinkle with garlic, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
Place lid on the Instant Pot and turn valve to sealing. Select Manual, high pressure (the default), and set the timer to 8 minutes (for frozen chicken breasts, add 2-3 extra minutes). The pressure cooker will take about 10 minutes to build pressure and begin counting down.
Once the cook time is over, turn the Instant Pot off and let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then do a quick release and open the lid.
Remove the chicken breasts and place on a cutting board or serving platter. Turn the Instant Pot to saute. (OPTIONAL: strain the broth if there is fat or unappetizing chunks left over)
Stir together cream, red peppers, corn starch and pesto and add to the pot. Whisk and cook for 3-4 minutes, until thickened. Add chicken back to the sauce or serve with the sauce over top if desired.
