  • Instant Pot


  • 4 Chicken Breasts
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2/3 cup White Wine (optional)
  • 1 Onion
  • 1 large Carrot
  • 1 stalk Celery
  • 2 Tbsp Flour
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 3/4 tsp Thyme ground
  • 3/4 tsp Sage ground
  • 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Salt


  • Set the Instant Pot to saute on high heat.
  • While it is warming up, season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and set aside.
  • Chop the onion, carrot, and celery.
  • Add the vegetables and butter to the Instant Pot and saute for 5 minutes or until tender.
  • Stir in the flour to coat the vegetables.
  • Add the white wine and stir, simmering for 2 minutes or until thick and bubbly.
  • Stir in the chicken broth, thyme, and sage. Submerge the chicken breasts into the sauce.
  • Lock lid into place and seal the vent. Pressure cook on high for 20 minutes.
  • Set valve to the vent position to quickly release the pressure. Carefully remove lid.
  • Break apart the chicken with a fork into bite sized pieces.
  • Serve and Enjoy!


  • If you prefer more of a white sauce, add 1/4 cup milk in place of 1/4 of the chicken broth.
  • Use a chicken broth that is not too high in sodium. The one I chose had 560mg of sodium per cup.
  • Feel free to add your favorite vegetables!
