  • 1 med medium sized onion (diced)
  • 2 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 14 oz diced or pureed tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp dried rosemary
  • t tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 large green bell pepper (diced)
  • 8 oz sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup marinated artichoke hearts
  • 3/4 cup dry red wine or chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil


  1. Select the saute function on your Instant Pot. While waiting to heat, salt, and pepper your chicken. Cover the bottom of your Instant Pot with oil, and add chicken. Cook on each side for 1-2 minutes. Remove from the pot. add in any extra oil if needed, then toss in your onion. Cook for about 2 minutes, add garlic and cook for another minute.

  2. Select the cancel function. Pour wine or chicken broth in the pot to deglaze, scraping any browned bits off the bottom that might have stuck (this helps prevent burning).

  3. In a small bowl, mix together your dry spices: oregano, paprika, rosemary, thyme, and salt. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, vinegar, and spices over the onion/garlic mixture. Give it a quick stir.

  4. Now top the sauce with chicken, then remaining vegetables: mushrooms, artichoke hearts, and bell pepper.

  5. Secure the lid. Select manual and cook on high pressure for 8 minutes.

  6. Once cooking is complete, use a quick release. You can use a towel to cover the valve to prevent a mess. Once steam is completely released, open the lid.

  7. Stir around the mixture. You can let sit for several minutes to thicken up the sauce, or serve immediately. Add any additional salt and pepper to taste.

  8. Serve over noodles, zoodles, or potatoes and garnish with fresh basil and thyme if using.
