Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore! Braised Italian chicken in saucy pasta-friendly form that is bright, acidic, rich, and savory.

Do you love easy recipes? I love easy recipes.

That’s why chicken cacciatore is here for you, and you, and you, AND YOU!

this recipe

Chicken cacciatore is braised Italian chicken in saucy pasta-friendly form, and the best thing about it for me right now is that it is bright, acidic and punchy (major caper action). Hello, YES.

But it’s also rich and savory (thanks, mushrooms), luscious and silky (olive oil and butter combo at work), and all-around just really satisfying over a pile of silky lemon-buttered capellini noodles.

Guess how easy this recipe is?

You just put everything in the Instant Pot and let it go.

Chicken Cacciatore in an Instant Pot.

This is kinda a “gourmet” Instant Pot recipe, where you sauté the chicken and veggies first, and it is very delicious. But if it’s just been one of those days and you need to throw it all in and sit down for three seconds, this recipe is SO here for you. Just omit the flour and sautéing and pull up your Netflix queue.

Boil up some pasta and throw it all together. Voila! Chicken cacciatore is yours for the taking.

Ingredients

Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore:

Finish with:

Instructions

  1. Dredge the chicken in flour and a pinch of salt. Turn on the sauté function on the Instant Pot. Add oil, and sauté the chicken for a few minutes on each side. Remove and set aside (it’s okay if they’re not cooked all the way).
  2. Add onion, mushrooms and garlic. Sauté until softened. Add wine and let it sizzle out. 
  3. Add chicken and all other ingredients to Instant Pot. Cook on high pressure for 15 minutes. Release the pressure. 
  4. Shred the chicken. Stir in the capers, butter, parsley and lemon.
  5. Serve with angel hair pasta (for a little extra zazz, toss it with lemon juice and butter). Top the whole thing with more parsley and Parmesan. You did it!

Notes

Chicken: I prefer chicken thighs, but chicken breasts also work really well. 

Freezing: You can freeze this before or after cooking. If cooking from frozen (raw), you’ll need to cook it for an additional 10-or-so minutes depending on the size of your chicken pieces.

Capellini: If you are doing Sugar Free January and trying to avoid refined grains, you could serve this with whole wheat spaghetti or zucchini noodles instead.
