You will lightly coat the cutlets in a flour mixture. Then lightly sear on both sides until golden in color.

Remove the cutlets from the Instant Pot. Then, add in the shallot, mushrooms, and garlic and sauté until golden in color. Add in the marsala wine and stir.

Place the cutlets back in the Instant Pot along with a bundle of fresh thyme.

Close the lid making sure the valve is set to "sealing". Turn off the Instant Pot then turn back on for 5 minutes on "MANUAL" mode.

Once the chicken is done cooking let rest for 10 minutes and then carefully force the remaining pressure out. Remove the chicken from the pan.

Turn the Instant Pot on to "SAUTE" mode. Let the mushrooms come to a boil.

While it starts to warm, mix the cornstarch and water together. Using a silicone spatula begin to mix in the cornstarch slurry into the mushroom gravy.
