  • 8 skinless chicken thighs
  • 28 ounces diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups bell pepper
  • 1 cup onion
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 8 ounces mushrooms
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper


  • Remove the skin on the chicken. Sprinkle with the salt and pepper and Italian seasoning.
  • Heat 1 tsp of oil in the Instant Pot on the Sautee setting, high. Sear the chicken for 3-4 minutes on each side, working in batches. Remove the chicken to a plate when finished.
  • Sautee the onion and garlic in the Instant Pot for 2-3 minutes. Deglaze with about 1/4 cup of the chicken stock.
  • Turn the Instant Pot off. Add the trivet to the Instant Pot and add the chicken so that it is sitting on top of the trivet. Add the diced tomatoes, chicken broth, mushrooms, and everything but the peppers.
  • Put the lid on and set the Instant Pot to Presure, high, 12 minutes.
  • When done, manually release. Remove the chicken with tongs once it has stopped boiling. Add the peppers and set the Instant Pot to sautee for a few minutes to allow the peppers to cook and to evaporate some of the liquid, making the sauce more concentrated.
  • Turn off the Instant Pot, season the sauce with more salt and pepper if necessary, and serve over the chicken thighs.
