Instant Pot Chicken Parmesan is a delicious and convenient twist on the classic Italian dish. This mouthwatering recipe combines tender, juicy chicken breasts with a flavorful marinara sauce and a cheesy crust!
Place the chicken pieces on a plate. Season the chicken with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper. Set that aside.
Add the olive oil and minced garlic to the Instant Pot. Set the Instant Pot to saute mode and cook for 1-2 minutes until the garlic is just cooked.
Add the trivet insert to the Instant Pot and place the chicken pieces on top of the trivet insert. Add some sauce to the top of the chicken pieces.
Close the Instant Pot, making sure the Instant Pot is set to the sealing position. Set the Instant Pot to 3 minutes on low pressure (not high pressure). Let the Instant Pot naturally release for 5 minutes.
Open the Instant Pot and top the chicken with the shredded parmesan and the shredded mozzarella. Close the lid, but do not turn it on.
The heat from the Instant Pot will melt the cheese. Take the chicken out of the Instant Pot and top with fresh basil if you prefer. Use the sauce for pasta or zucchini noodles.
