  • Instant Pot
  • Measuring Spoon
  • Measuring Cup
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • 1 Small Bowls
  • Cheese Grater


  • 1 tsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 cups Marinara Sauce
  • 0.25 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 Tsp round Black Pepper
  • 4 Thinly Cut Chicken Breasts
  • 0.5 tsp Salt
  • 0.5 tsp Dried Basil
  • 4 ounces Fresh Mozzarella


  • Grate the parmesan into a small bowl then set aside.
  • Add the minced garlic, marinara sauce, olive oil, half the grated parmesan, ground black pepper, dried basil and salt to the Instant Pot bowl.
  • Nestle the chicken into the sauce then put the lid on the Instant Pot and seal, setting the steamer valve to the “seal” position. Press the “manual” button then set the timer for three minutes with high pressure. When the timer is done, do a quick pressure release by carefully opening the steam valve to release the pressure.
  • Lay the sliced mozzarella over the cooked chicken breasts and sprinkle the remaining parmesan over the top. Place the Instant Pot lid back on the machine but do not seal- you are just keeping the heat in so that the cheese melts. Let the bowl sit for about 5 minutes.
  • Plate and serve over pasta or on it’s own!
