This Easy Instant Pot Chicken Madeira recipe always gets rave reviews at the dinner table! Easy to make on busy weeknights but yet fancy to serve guests. I am sure it will become a new favorite for your family.
Madeira wine can be found in a wine store, not carried in most grocery stores. I used the dry version, which I bought at Total Wine.
Many people ask me if my children eat the dishes that have wine ... and my answer is yes! However, this is a personal decision for sure, but with appropriate cooking methods the wine flavor will remain in a concentrated form, enchanting the flavor of sauces, but the alcohol will be gone, leaving the food safe for a child to consume.
Chicken: I used chicken breast but if you prefer you can use boneless skinless chicken thighs.
CAN I USE FROZEN CHICKEN?
Yes, this recipe works with frozen chicken as well. The cook time under pressure doesn’t change, but it does extend the amount of time it takes the pot to come up to pressure to about 12- 15 minutes, depending on the number of breasts.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COOK CHICKEN BREASTS IN A PRESSURE COOKER?
It depends on what is your chicken goal! If you want firm chicken, pressure cook it for 8 -10 minutes and then quick release. For chicken that can be shredded with a fork, pressure cook it for 15-minutes and then 5 minutes natural release.
