Creamy, delicious chicken, oh my!  This chicken stroganoff in the Instant Pot is a new favorite recipe!  It is true comfort food and packed with TONS of flavor!  Can’t wait to hear your thoughts immediately.

We’ve been waiting the last several weeks to make this chicken stroganoff recipe.  It always seemed a bit more complicated than I was hoping for so I continued to put it off.  Boy was I wrong.  It’s far easier than we thought it might be thanks to the pressure cooker.  

We tried this receipe for the first time as Instant Pot Meatball Stroganoff and the family loved it so much we thought why not adjust slightly and make it with chicken this go around.  

This recipe is so rich and creamy!  I hope your family loves it just as much as ours does!  It’s packed with fresh ingredients including boneless skinless chicken breasts, slicked mushrooms, chicken or beef broth, cream cheese or sour cream, Parmesan cheese and more!  I can almost guarantee this easy chicken stroganoff recipe will be a new family favorite.  

Now, let’s get to the good stuff – the details on this incredible Instant Pot Chicken Stroganoff!  Make it for your family and watch them come running for seconds!

TIPS FOR MAKING CHICKEN STROGANOFF IN YOUR INSTANT POT: 

  • This recipe will make a good amount of gravy.  My family loves a good hearty dish of gravy over the pasta noodles so feel free to lessen the ingredients below, if needed. 
  • This recipe can be stored for several days as leftovers.  It tastes just as good the next day as fresh!  Although, I’d be surprised if there are any leftovers at all. 
  • If you choose to use frozen chicken, note it may take the Instant Pot a tad more time to come to pressure compared with thawed chicken.
  • Also, you’ll notice I don’t cook the egg noodles in the Instant Pot.  The shells have a tendency to absorb too much of the sauce.  Instead, I cook on the stove top for about 5 minutes.

HOW TO MAKE CHICKEN STROGANOFF IN YOUR INSTANT POT: 

  1. Turn Instant Pot on and select the ‘Saute’ function on high.  
  2. Add olive oil, butter and saute until onions have slightly softened, about 2-3 minutes.  
  3. Now, add mushrooms, stir and continue to saute with the onions for an additional 3-4 minutes.  
  4. Add garlic, stir and continue to cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.

  7. Next, select the ‘Pressure Cook’ function on high and set the timer to 5 minutes (based on a 10 ounce chicken breast).  Press ‘Start.’ NOTE: It will take the Instant Pot about 10 minutes to come to pressure before the cooking time begins.  
  8. Once the timer beeps, allow 10 to 15 minutes to naturally release pressure. After 10 or so minutes, quick release all remaining pressure.  Carefully remove the lid.
