This Instant Pot Chicken Stew is a delicious blend of Mediterranean flavors. It’s such an easy, healthy recipe for a chilly night.
Chicken stew is one of those dinners that makes a cold winter night feel a little better. The hearty, cozy flavors are pure comfort food.
It typically takes a long time to make stew, but not so when you have an Instant Pot pressure cooker. Once it comes to pressure, this Mediterranean chicken stew takes just 10 minutes to cook. It feels like a miracle to be able to make stew so quickly on a busy night.
I love Mediterranean flavors, but you can easily convert this recipe to a more traditional chicken stew if you’d prefer. Simply substitute carrots and celery for the peppers and olives. And if you don’t have a pressure cooker, you can simmer this stew on the stove or in the oven until the chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
Here’s a short video that shows how easy it is to make this delicious Instant Pot chicken stew:
Instant Pot Chicken Stew
$1.75 per serving
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 1 onion chopped
- 1/2 red pepper chopped
- 1/2 yellow pepper chopped
- 1 1/2 lb potatoes peeled and chopped
- 1/2 lb green beans chopped
- 1/2 cup kalamata olives cut in half
- 2 cups chicken broth
- 1 lb chicken breast
- 1/2 tsp oregano
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/8 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Fresh basil for garnish optional
Set the Instant Pot to Saute, and once it’s hot, add the olive oil and onion. Cook for a minute, then add the red and yellow peppers. Cook for a couple more minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp tender.
Add the potatoes, green beans, olives, and broth to the pot. Place the chicken on top, and sprinkle it with the seasonings.
Cook the stew on manual high pressure for 8 to 10 minutes (8 minutes for thin chicken breast, 10 minutes for thick chicken breast). Use a quick release to open the pot, and use a meat thermometer to check the temperature of the thickest part of the chicken. If it hasn’t yet reached 165 degrees, set the pot to Saute and cook for another minute or two as needed.
Once the chicken is fully cooked, remove it from the pot and chop it into bite-sized pieces. Return the chicken to the pot and stir. Garnish with fresh basil if desired, and serve warm.
