Instructions
  1. Select the sauté function to heat the Instant Pot inner pot. When the display reads “Hot,” add the oil and heat until shimmering. Add the onion, mushrooms, and garlic, and sauté, stirring continuously, until mushrooms start to release their juices, approximately 5 minutes. Add the wine to deglaze the bottom of the inner pot, scraping up all the browned bits stuck to the bottom.
  2. Lay the chicken, skin side down, on top of mushroom mixture. Press Cancel to turn off the sauté function.
  3. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, oregano, thyme, rosemary, and 1/2 cup (120 ml) water. Stir to combine. Secure the lid, ensuring the valve is turned to the Sealing position. Press the Pressure Cook button and set the time to 20 minutes.
  4. Once cooking is complete, turn the valve to the Venting position to release the pressure. When all the pressure is released, carefully open the lid and stir gently to combine the ingredients. Remove the chicken using tongs and set on a serving platter. Pour the sauce over the chicken and serve with polenta.

    Very good and super easy. I agree to use more mushrooms. I also added some red pepper flakes.

    The Hunter’s Chicken was very good, but I don’t think it needed the additional water. It made the sauce too runny.

    Whenever I see a recipe that calls for water, I always use broth. In this recipe I just used the red wine. No water or broth.
