  • 2 tbsp Butter Unsalted
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 2 pounds Chicken breast Cut into 1-2 inch cubes, Can also use whole breasts
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 cup Onions Finely chopped
  • 2 cloves Garlic Finely minced
  • 2 cups Mushrooms Cleaned, Sliced, White mushrooms or Cremini mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup Water Or low sodium broth
  • 1 can Cream of mushroom soup 10.5 oz. can, Low sodium


  • Turn Instant Pot to "Sauté" mode and heat half the butter and oil.
  • Add chicken, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and saute for few minutes until no longer pink. This takes about 2 minutes.
  • Remove from pressure cooker and keep aside.
  • Next, add remaining butter and oil.
  • When it's heated, add onions, garlic, mushrooms and saute for a few minutes until garlic is fragrant and onions are partially softened.
  • Transfer the chicken back in the pressure cooker.
  • Add water and mix until combined.
  • Pour cream of mushroom soup on top. Do not mix.
  • Put the lid on and turn up the the valve to “Sealing.”
  • Select “Manual” mode and set the timer for 6 minutes.
  • When the cook time is over, turn the valve to “Venting” and do a quick pressure release. 
  • Remove lid and gently stir everything together.
  • Cook uncovered on "Saute" mode for or a little longer to evaporate/reduce excess liquid and thicken the gravy/sauce. Don't over-mix or stir too much because that would break up the chicken and mushrooms.


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated in the microwave or stovetop.
