Instant Pot Chicken And Gravy

Instant Pot Chicken and Gravy is an easy dinner recipe for those busy weeknights. Even the kids like this tender chicken with a light and creamy gravy. Serve with my favorite mashed potatoes, rice, or egg noodles.

Recipe Notes
Serve over Mashed Potatoes, Rice, or even Wide Egg Noodles. 
Key to Success #1 – Use Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
This Instant Pot Chicken and Gravy recipe uses boneless skinless chicken breasts. Be sure to trim them well to remove anything you wouldn’t want to eat.

You’ll probably need 4-5 boneless skinless chicken breasts to make 3 pounds. You can really use anywhere from 2.5 to 3.5 pounds of chicken breasts.

After your chicken cooks, you’ll remove the chicken breasts from the Instant Pot and shred it with two forks. I like to leave some larger chunks of chicken in my Chicken and Gravy.

Key to Success #2 – Go Light on the Salt
While you do want to salt and pepper your chicken breasts when putting them into the Instant Pot, you don’t need to go overboard because the cream of chicken soup and the chicken gravy already contain some salt.

If you’re concerned about the salt, you can wait to salt your chicken and gravy after it finishes cooking in the Instant Pot. This way you’ll be able to taste test and make sure your seasoning is right.

Key to Success #3 – Natural Release for the Most Tender Chicken
After your Chicken and Gravy finishes pressure cooking, let the pressure release naturally for at least 10 minutes. You can use the quick release valve after 10 minutes has passed if you’re in a hurry.

You’ll want to wait the 10 minutes to ensure the chicken is fully cooked and tender. When you’re cooking with the Instant Pot, the timer starts once the Instant Pot reaches pressure but the cooking process starts much earlier.

Chicken and Gravy is delicious when served over white or brown rice, wide egg noodles, or my favorite – mashed potatoes.

I served the Chicken and Gravy over brown rice this time and the gravy soaked down into the rice. This gravy is not super-thick. It’s a thinner gravy but still very flavorful and the tender and juicy chicken is absolutely wonderful.

I hope you’ll give this great Instant Pot recipe a try.

The low-price Model S is gone. If it must be a Tesla and you don’t need all-wheel drive or don’t have six figures, consider a Model 3.Though the Model 3 is all the rage, the larger 2019 Tesla Model S remains a stunning achievement and design trendsetter, albeit somewhat dated in the details.
The Tesla Model S wasn’t the first model from the California electric carmaker, but it’s the one that put Tesla on the trajectory as an innovator. It was unprecedented in many ways and has already earned a place in history books—the fastest volume-production plug-in car; the longest-range electric car; and the first production car built on a platform that provides over-the-air updates.
