Ok, I’m at it again with the pressure cooker………Pressure Cooker Chicken Marsala.

I will continue to sing the praises of the pressure cooker until every home in America has one….from sea to shining sea!!

Sorry…… too many political messages lately…..I have lost my mind!

But, for a busy family, this is the one kitchen gadget you need.

I have made Chicken Marsala from many different recipes over the years, but this one, besides the ease of the pressure cooke,r is the best yet.

I think I like it because of the simple ingredients. Nothing fancy, or out of the norm, just fresh chicken……I buy range free…..personal choice, organic mushrooms, and fresh garlic.

Marsala wine is Italy’s most famous version of fortified wine, hailing from Italy’s sunny southern region, Marsala is an ancient city on the coast of Sicily. Marsala wine is recognized for its use in various cooking and culinary combinations.

Marsala wine can be strong, like a port wine or a sherry, but the alcohol cooks off, so no worries. Only a rich, mellow and earthy taste remains. Part of that earthiness comes from the mushrooms. I prefer baby bella’s, but any mushroom will do.

Sear the chicken breast …….no one wants a pale chicken breast. Add the mushrooms, garlic, and Marsala, cover and cook.

In seven minutes, remove the chicken , thicken the sauce, put the chicken back in for a few minutes to absorb the sauce.

I sliced the chicken breast for ease of eating and they look pretty that way. Place the sliced chicken on top of hot buttery egg noodles… can leave out the butter part, but I prefer egg noodles with butter……ladle on the mushroom marsala sauce and sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.

Pressure Cooker Chicken Marsala……….simple, delicious, and quick!!

  1. Can I make this ahead? I like to make ahead and freeze meals so I can toss it in the Instapot and have dinner done quickly. What adjustments would have to be made if this was frozen?

    1. Please excuse my delay in replying….we are moving…ugh. Just don’t sear the chicken, also maybe add a few minutes to the time. I must admit I’m new to the Instapot/Pressure Cooker so I am learning:)

  2. Recipe doesn’t indicate natural or instant pressure release. Insplit the difference , let sit 7 min and then vented. Chicken is tough. Any suggestions.

    1. I use instant release, if you let the pressurer naturally go down the product, in this case the chicken contiunes to cook, and over cooked chicken is tough. Also I cooked the breasts whole and cut them after cooking. I hope you will try it again.
