Instant Pot Chicken with Mushrooms and Artichoke Hearts Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This Instant Pot Chicken with Mushrooms and Artichoke Hearts recipe is a one pot meal in the Instant Pot made with delicious whole foods.

My life is full-speed.

The schedules packed.

I’ve taken the lazy way out, pulling into drive-thrus when I needed to crunch time.

Then I realized that the lazy way was far more work than an Instant Pot.

I’m not kidding.

On a day when the accelerator was stuck in go, go, go! I resisted the urge.

It was getting late, and my husband pulled into the parking lot of some fast-food chain on our way home.

I said, “Nah. I’ll make dinner when we get home.”

He reminded me of the hour.

That the kids needed showers, homework and then asked, “what are you thinking of making?”

“Chicken with mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and artichoke hearts.”

Perhaps it was the low sugar from the afternoon of errands, but he nearly lost his mind!

“We need to eat before midnight!” he said in his voice signaling that if I didn’t pull this off it would be Armageddon.

I didn’t flinch.

We got home, and in less than 30-minutes, I had a beautiful meal made for my family–made of whole foods!

It’s perfect for busy weeknights.

The convenience and flavor of Tuttorosso tomatoes are what I think propels this dish. The tomatoes have a beautiful color that makes this dish stand out. The flavor is just as a vine-ripened tomato from the garden. You can see the difference of Tuttorosso Tomatoes out of the can.

Brown Chicken (optional).

If you want to brown you chicken breasts first (for looks) add 1 Tablespoon oil to the Instant Pot.

Turn Instant Pot on to saute to heat oil.

Once the oil is heated, salt and pepper chicken breasts and place in a single layer in the heated oil.

sauté chicken until golden brown.

Quick Pressure Release.

I let the Instant Pot stay on warm for 5 minutes, without moving the lid, and then I serve the dish over rice.

It was a huge hit, and I felt so much better knowing we don’t need the drive-thru.

I can come home and make a one-pot meal in the Instant Pot in the same amount of time while my kiddos are showering or doing homework and feed my family whole, delicious foods.

Note: We do not use the juices that remain. I just use a slotted spoon to get the vegetables out and serve over white rice, zucchini noodles or pasta noodles. However, you can mix 1 Tablespoon cornstarch with 1 Tablespoon of the liquid to create a slurry and then whisk into juices until it is to your desired “gravy” thickness to make a sauce lots of flavor.
