Instant Pot Asiago Chicken

  • Author: 365 Days of Slow and Pressure Cooking
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 18 minutes (plus 10 minute NPR)
  • Total Time: 60 minutes
  • Yield: 6-8 servings 1x


Tender bites of chicken with a creamy asiago and mushroom sauce. 


  • 3 Tbsp butter
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 8 oz mushrooms, quartered (pat them dry with a paper towel)
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • 2 pounds chicken (see note)
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/41/2 cup flour
  • 3 oz grated asiago cheese


  1. Turn the Instant Pot on the saute setting. When the display says HOT add in the butter and let it melt. Add in the onions, mushrooms, parsley, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper and saute for about 5 minutes. Then stir in the chicken broth and vinegar. Nestle the chicken into the pot. 
  2. Cover the Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure the valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 15 minutes for fresh chicken breasts or thighs (18 minute for frozen breasts, thighs or bone-in chicken). When the time is up let the pot sit for 10 minutes and then move the valve to venting. Remove the lid.
  3. In a large glass measuring cup measure out the heavy cream. Temper the cream by whisking in a few tablespoons of the hot liquid. Then slowly whisk in a tablespoon of flour at a time into the mixture until smooth and creamy. If you want a thick sauce use ½ cup flour and less for a thinner sauce. 
  4. Use a large spoon to move the chicken pieces to a platter. Then turn the Instant Pot to the saute setting. Stir in the flour/cream mixture a little at a time and whisk until creamy. The sauce will thicken as it boils for a couple of minutes. Once the sauce is thickened turn off the pot and stir in the Asiago cheese until it is melted. 
  5. Spoon the sauce and mushrooms over the chicken and serve. We ate ours with noodles but you serve with mashed potatoes, riced cauliflower, zoodles or rice too. 


Chicken: I used frozen boneless, skinless chicken thighs but you can also use breasts or bone-in chicken. 

I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*.
