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.

  1. Trim boneless skinless chicken breasts and layer in inner pot of Instant Pot. Salt and pepper to taste.

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.

Once Upon a Hollywood Movie Review

Say Goodbye to "Hollywood"

Moments of Quentin Tarantino's new movie "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" suggest a calmer and more reflective side of the filmmaker. Tarantino is known for his unrelenting violence and rapid-fire dialogue exchanges, but early scenes in his latest movie show him taking a bit of a breath. It's a nice touch, but Tarantino cannot help giving into his worst indulgences as a director; the movie ultimately succumbs to those, and it erases all hints of goodwill that may have been built up earlier in the film.

Spinach, Asian Pear & Chicken Salad

Fragrant, crunchy Asian pears add a refreshing melon-like flavor to the healthy chicken salad recipe. Look for the large, brown, apple-shaped fruit in well-stocked supermarkets near other specialty fruit.

Synology DS419slim Review

The DS419slim fills a unique niche by being a NAS drive that exclusively accepts only 2.5in drives. A limitation that is perhaps more of a curse than a blessing. Find out why in our review.
Should I Buy The Synology DiskStation DS419slim?
On paper a NAS drive that uses 2.5in drives might seem interesting until you realise the limited sizes available for NAS use, and the cost of owning them.
Unless you really need a compact NAS drive, another model is likely to be a better choice.
