Now, it’s time to gather all your ingredients, including four large chicken thighs, baby bella mushrooms, bell peppers, white wine, and tomato paste, among other spices and simple ingredients and spices.

First, you’ll season the tights with salt, dredge them in smoked paprika-seasoned flour, and sear in the Instant Pot using the sauté function. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients, and cook on high pressure for nine minutes, followed by another 10 minutes as the pressure releases naturally. It’s a super-simple process — one perfect for a busy weeknight.

“Serve over cheesy polenta or with a side of crusty bread, add a salad, and you’re all set in about 30 minutes,” De Laurentiis says.
