How to Make Instant Pot Chicken Marsala

  • Set your Instant Pot or Electric Pressure Cooker to Saute and then wait until it reads “hot.”

  • Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel
  • Season chicken with the seasoned salt and pepper then dredge in flour.
  • Add your Olive Oil to the hot Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker.
  • Place the Chicken Cutlets in the Instant Pot to brown them on each side. This takes about 90 seconds per side.

  • Add in the Mushrooms, Garlic, and Diced Onions and Saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • Turn off the Instant Pot / Pressure Cooker.

  • Place the browned chicken breasts on the top and then set to Manual / Pressure Cook for 6 minutes.
  • Allow a 12 minute Natural Release before releasing the remaining pressure.
  • Remove the chicken.

  • Serve the chicken with sauce over Rice, Mashed Potatoes, or Noodles.

What to serve with Chicken Marsala?

One of the most popular side dishes to serve with chicken marsala is mashed potatoes. But serving it with noodles or even rice is another great idea.

What to do if you don’t have Marsala wine?

You can make a simple substitution. Madeira wine or a nice dry white wine works well. For a wine-free dinner you can simply use beef broth, but the flavor won’t be the same.

Should I use Sweet or Dry Marsala? 

Trying to find the best Marsala wine? Due to the savoriness of this dish, I recommend using a dry wine.

What is a Chicken Cutlet?

It’s a chicken breast that has been sliced in half and then pounded to be an even thickness.

Can I use Chicken Thighs?

You can use boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of chicken breast. Just trim them to all be about the same thickness for even cooking.
