Instant Pot Chicken and Gravy

Please follow and like us:

This chicken and gravy recipe is an easy recipe for the Instant Pot!

(This post contains affiliate links. Please see my disclosure for more info.)

It’s so easy….it really is a dump and go recipe! Simply mix together the ingredients, add it to the Instant Pot and let it cook for 15 minutes. Easy peasy!

There are 4 servings, about 1 cup each. For blue and purple it is 3 points per serving, for green it is 5 points per serving.

I kept this low in points by serving it with riced cauliflower. It was really good!

The ingredients for the gravy mixture is Healthy Request cream of chicken, chicken broth, two packets of chicken gravy and 1 clove of minced garlic.

I whisked all of that together, then added it to the Instant Pot. Next, place the trivet into the Instant Pot, then put the chicken onto that.

One thing I usually do with chicken recipes in the Instant Pot is let them naturally release the steam. Meaning instead of flipping the sealed valve to release the steam I let it happen naturally.

Once the chicken is done cooking remove the trivet and shred the chicken with a fork.

Even if you want to serve the chicken and gravy with rice, it’s still pretty low in points.

Either way, it’s a tasty and filling meal!

This can also be made in the slow cooker. Simply add all of the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on low 4 hours.

I tried this as well with the trivet. Burn notice twice. Have a heavy black layer burnt on the bottom of the pot. So far I’ve been unable to get it off. I think it’s ruined my instapot

Made twice now. This time burn notice twice (burn notice first time too) and ended up putting it in a casserole and baking in the oven. Delicious but won’t be trying in the instant pot again! Used trivet too!

Can you use frozen chicken? How long would you cook it then?

I tried this tonight for supper. Used the trivet, and in only about 5 minutes of turning on I got the burn notice. I removed the chicken, added about two more cups of chicken stock, did not stir, added the chicken back in and it cooked ok. Then when it was done I removed the “ fall apart chicken” and thickened the gravy with a little flour and water. Turned out great, just disappointed in having to stop the cooking to thin the gravy down. Any suggestions?

I didn’t have a trivet but if you do broth, chicken, soup, gravy mix and do not stir you won’t get burn notice. When the sauce it too thick it makes to hard to come to pressure and can give you burn notice.
