Chicken marsala is one of our favorite Italian dishes to enjoy at home! Even better, it’s made fast using the instant pot.
I probably make this savory Italian dish at least once a month.
Chicken Marsala is a savory yet sweet main dish found in Sicily, Italy. Marsala wine is actually made in this region of Italy.
Hence why it's such a popular dish.
Here is a list of ingredients that you will need to make my recipe for chicken marsala in the Instant Pot.
- Olive Oil
- Chicken Breast Cutlets
- All-Purpose Flour
- Black Pepper
- Garlic Powder
- Baby Bella Mushrooms
- Marsala Wine
Making Chicken Marsala is very easy. First you will need to either slice chicken breast in half or make life easier and purchase a packet of chicken cutlets.
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.
Mix until it begins to thicken. Turn the Instant Pot OFF. Add the chicken back to the pot and let sit for 2-3 minutes or until ready to serve dinner.
