"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Wendy Messaline


1 pound thin cut chicken breast (or can use chicken thighs)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour , for dredging
salt and pepper
3 Tablespoons olive oil , separated
8 ounces fresh cremini mushrooms , thickly sliced
3 green onions , chopped
2 cloves garlic , minced
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/3 cup sweet Marsala wine
1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
(I used about 1/2 the amount of cream)

Select SAUTE on the Instant Pot, and add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the instant pot.
Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, and dredge them in flour. Add chicken thighs to the hot oil and cook them for 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown.
Remove the chicken thighs to a plate. Add the last tablespoon of olive oil to the instant pot along with the mushrooms, green onions, and garlic. Saute for 2 minutes and then press CANCEL.

Add the chicken broth to pot, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. ( I also added some of the Marsala wine at this point). Place the chicken thighs on top. Close the lid and turn the pressure valve to "sealing".
Cook on Manual/Pressure setting and cook for 10 minutes on high pressure. When the timer beeps, allow the pressure to naturally release for 5 minutes (12 minutes for thighs), before opening the lid.
Press cancel and remove the thighs to a plate. Cover them with tinfoil to keep warm.
Turn instant pot to SAUTE setting and add the marsala wine to the mushroom mixture. Bring the mixture to a boil and cook for 3 minutes.
Stir in the heavy whipping cream and cook for an additional 5 minutes or until the mixture is slightly thickened.
Spoon the sauce over chicken. Serve warm with mashed potatoes or egg noodles.
