  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 8 oz mushrooms
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts (cut into strips)
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 6 oz spinach, chopped


  • Turn the sauté function on your Instant Pot. Once it reads HOT, add in the butter.
  • Once butter is melted, add in the onion and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Add in the garlic and cook an additional 30 seconds.
  • Stir in the chicken broth, garlic powder, pepper, salt, and mushrooms, bouillon cubes, and chicken.
  • Turn off the sauté function and place lid securely on top. Ensure the valve is in sealing position.
  • Cook manual, high pressure, for 6 minutes, followed by a natural pressure release for 10 minutes.
  • Once time is up, do a quick release to remove any additional pressure.
  • Once pin has dropped, remove lid carefully.
  • Carefully remove the chicken to a plate and cover/set aside.
  • Turn the Instant Pot back to saute function.
  • Warm the half and half in the microwave for 45 seconds.
  • Whisk the flour into the warmed half and half until smooth and combined.
  • Whisk the mixture into the Instant Pot as this will help thicken the sauce.
  • Add in the Parmesan cheese and spinach, seasoning with additional salt/pepper if desired.
  • Turn off the Instant Pot and serve chicken with sauce either over pasta, mashed potatoes, or on its own! Enjoy!
