  • Author: 365 Days of Slow and Pressure Cooking
  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


Tender chicken with tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini and goat cheese.


  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp Better than Bouillon Chicken Base
  • 23 cups cooked chopped chicken (I used rotisserie chicken)
  • 3 medium Russet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2 inch cubes
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 medium zucchini, peeled and seeded and cut into 1/4 inch cubes
  • 1 ounce goat cheese or feta cheese
  • 2 tsp cornstarch (optional)


  1. Pour water into Instant Pot. Stir in the chicken base. 
  2. Dump in the chicken, potatoes, tomatoes, salt, pepper, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and onion powder. Don’t stir.
  3. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 2 minutes. When time is up move valve to venting and remove the lid. 
  4. Stir in the zucchini. Replace the lid. Let the pot sit on warm for 10 minutes (this will slightly cook the zucchini). 
  5. Stir in the goat cheese. If you’d like to thicken the sauce you can make a cornstarch slurry by stirring together equal parts cornstarch and water and stirring it into the pot using the saute setting. 
  6. Serve and enjoy!
