I was inspired to make this recipe after having a similar recipe at a local restaurant. They called it a Cremini Bowl. The potatoes and mushrooms were braised in beer. I wanted to make this for my family so I eliminated the beer. But if you would like to make it with a beer braise, substitute 1/2 cup of the chicken broth with your favorite beer and eliminate the lemon juice.

I figured since the potatoes and mushrooms were braised, it was a perfect candidate for the Instant Pot. I am all for one pot meals like this one. that make dinner time a breeze and cleanup simple. I have more pressing (read “fun”) things to do than standing at the sink all night, how about you?

The fact that the Instant Pot has a sauté function not only makes it possible for the recipe to be a one-pot meal, it also helps to build the flavors in the braising liquid. The bits that are left behind after the chicken is browned and the garlic, onions, and mushrooms are sautéed make the liquid rich and tasty. The lemon juice adds just the right amount of tanginess.

Adding frozen peas at the end makes this meal complete.

When you serve the potatoes, mushrooms, chicken and peas in deep bowls don’t be stingy with the braising liquid.

Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 16 oz. cremini mushrooms, quartered
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • 2 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 and 1/2  lb. red potatoes, quartered
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl combine salt, thyme, pepper, and oregano.
  2. Season the chicken pieces with the herb mixture. Set aside.
  3. Add oil to the inner pot and select SAUTÉ to pre-heat. When the indicator says HOT, add the chicken to the pot and cook stirring occasionally, until the chicken starts to brown, about 3 – 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another 3 minutes. Transfer the chicken to a clean plate.
  4. Add the mushrooms, onion, and butter to the inner pot and cook for 3 – 4 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken stock and deglaze the pot, scraping the bottom to loosen all of the bits. Stir in the lemon juice.
  6. Add the potatoes to the inner pot and stir to distribute all of the vegetables.
  7. Place the chicken pieces on top of the potatoes along with any juices that may have accumulated on the dish.
  8. Close and lock the lid. Make sure the steam release handle is in the sealed position. Hit CANCEL and then Select PRESSURE COOK and cook on high. Set 6 minutes of pressure cooking time.
  9. When time is up, allow a natural pressure release of 5 minutes and then turn the steam release handle to the venting position and allow remaining steam to escape. When the valve has dropped, unlock the lid and open carefully.
  10. Add the frozen peas, replace the lid on the Instant Pot and allow the residual heat to cook the peas, about 3 minutes.
  11. Scoop chicken and vegetables into a bowl and spoon some of the broth over the top. Season with salt and pepper.
