Herbed Italian Chicken Breasts Ingredients
Prep time: 10 minutes
Active cook time: 25-30 minutes (+ time to come to pressure and 10 minutes natural release)
2-3 T. extra virgin olive oil, divided (Weight Watchers use 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil)
½ medium red onion, diced
8 oz. baby Portobello mushrooms, cleaned and sliced thin
4 6-oz. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to ¼” thick
Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
1 c. chicken broth, preferably organic
1 t. garlic powder
2 T. fresh thyme leaves
2 T. fresh rosemary leaves, chopped
4 sprigs fresh rosemary
4 oz. goat cheese, cut into chunks (Weight Watchers reduce to 3 ounces to make this a 2 point dinner) (Remove the Cheese completely and this becomes 0 points)
3 T. fresh parsley, chopped
How to Make Herbed Italian Chicken Breasts with a Mushroom Sauce
- Add one tablespoon olive oil to Instant Pot® and select the Sauté function. Set to high and once the display reads “hot,” add red onion and Portobello mushrooms. Cook, stirring frequently until onions soften and mushrooms start to release their liquid, approximately 5-6 minutes. Transfer veggies to a bowl and set aside.
- Add another tablespoon olive oil to unit and season chicken breasts with salt and black pepper on both sides. Working in batches, if necessary, add chicken to the Instant Pot® without overcrowding. Brown on both sides, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.
- Remove browned chicken from unit and repeat process with remaining olive oil and chicken breasts, as needed.
- Return mushrooms and onions to Instant Pot® and add chicken broth, garlic powder, thyme, and rosemary. Stir to combine.
- Place the metal trivet that comes with the Instant Pot® into the cooking container. Place chicken breasts on top of the trivet and cover. Lock the lid and set the pressure valve to “Sealing.” Press the “Manual” button and adjust setting to “high.” Set cook time to 10 minutes.
- When cook time is finished, allow pressure to release naturally for 10 minutes, and then do a quick release for any remaining pressure. Turn the unit off and remove lid. Transfer chicken to a serving platter and rest for 5 minutes.
- Add the goat cheese to the cooking liquid and stir to combine. Taste and adjust seasonings, as desired.
- Serve immediately with some of the mushroom sauce spooned over each chicken breast. Enjoy!
Note: to make this recipe in the oven, start by cooking chicken in a skillet. Instead of adding the ingredients into the Instant Pot, use a casserole dish. Cook for 20 minutes at 400 degrees.
