Instant Pot Chicken Parmesan is an easy and fast way to make a Chicken Parmesan recipe! Just a few ingredients and dinner is ready in under 30 minutes. I turned my favorite easy chicken parmesan into an Instant Pot recipe an I’m super excited to share it!
A reader messaged me the other day begging for more instant pot recipes and I was delighted to have this one waiting in the wings. I’m trying as hard as I can to post more instant pot chicken recipes because I know you all love them!
Do you have an instant pot yet? Or any electric pressure cooker? (Any will do; Instant Pot is my favorite brand.) If not, you need one. They’re life changing!
Most people that don’t have one (or have one still in its box) are afraid to use it. And believe me, I was that way too. It took me awhile (and a lot of reading) to get up the courage to try mine the first time. But Instant Pots really are life savers, especially when you’re busy or don’t feel like cooking. They do all the work for you!
If you use a crockpot I guarantee you’ll love using an Instant Pot. Plus: a pressure cooker is faster! I love making dinner in my crockpot but I always forget to start it early enough. With the Instant Pot you don’t have to worry about it.
1 pound chicken breasts (about 4 breasts)
24 ounces pasta sauce or 1 jar
2 cloves garlic pressed or minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup mozzarella cheese shredded
Pasta for serving
Add pasta sauce to the instant pot liner. Stir in garlic and pepper flakes.
Place chicken breastss in the bottom of your instant pot liner. If they’re really thick, pound them uniform in size.
Close and lock the instant pot lid. Make sure the release valve is closed. Set the pressure to high for 10 minutes. Let come to pressure, cook for 10 minutes, then do a natural release for 10 minutes.
Release any steam and unlock the lid. Add cheese to the top of each chicken breast. Close the lid and set the pressure cooker to warm or saute on low. Keep the lid on, checking after a few minutes, until the cheese is melted.
Serve with pasta or vegetables.
