How to Make Instant Pot Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Parmesan
Like almost all of my recipes, this one for Creamy Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Parmesan is just a few simple steps. It's hard enough to get dinner on the table every night. Why make it hard?
Because this meal is made in the Instant Pot, this is a one-dish meal. So, not only do you save time and energy on making the meal, you have less clean up too!
Step 1 – Brown Chicken
When people ask why I love my Instant Pot so much, a lot of it has to do with the saute function. Unlike a slow cooker or other pressure cookers, I can brown meat in the Instant Pot and have one less pan to clean.
So, the first step is to brown the chicken in a little bit of olive oil. You'll have to remove it to a plate before moving to the next step, but a plate is so much easier to clean than a frying pan!
After removing the chicken and turning the Instant Pot off, add the liquid, spaghetti. sun dried tomato paste, and garlic to the pot.
Place the chicken on top and then pour the mushrooms over the breasts.
Step 3 – Cook
Cook on manual high pressure for 10 minutes and natural release for 2 minutes.
Step 4 – Make Cream Sauce
To make the sauce creamy, add the Parmesan and sour cream and mix well.
Dinner's ready! Top with some freshly shredded Parmesan and fresh basil for added flavor and visual appeal.
