Ingredients

4 8-ounce boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 1/4teaspoons salt
3/4teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4tablespoons unsalted butter (1/2 stick)
1cup sliced yellow onion (1 medium onion)
1 sprig fresh thyme, plus 2 teaspoons fresh thyme leaves
12ounces mushrooms such as shiitake or button, wiped clean, stemmed and sliced
2teaspoons minced garlic (2 to 3 cloves)
3tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4cup Marsala
1 1/2cups homemade chicken stock or packaged low-sodium chicken broth
Cooked penne pasta or other pasta for serving

Instructions

  1. Season the chicken all over with 1 teaspoon of the salt and ½ teaspoon of the pepper.
  2. Set a 6-quart pressure cooker to the “browning” program and add 1 tablespoon of the butter. When the butter has melted, brown the chicken, in batches, on one side for 5 minutes. Remove the chicken and set aside.
  3.  Add the remaining 3 tablespoons butter to the pressure cooker. When it has melted, add the onion and thyme sprig, and cook until the onion is soft, about 3 minutes. Then add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes, until browned. Stir in the garlic, the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt, and the remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper. Stir in the flour and continue to cook, stirring as needed, for 2 minutes. Add the Marsala, simmer for 3 minutes, and then add the chicken stock. Return the chicken breasts to the pressure cooker, browned side up. Close and lock the lid, and set to “low pressure” for 2 minutes.
  4. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, add the pasta, and cook according to the package directions.
  5. Open the pressure release valve and allow the steam to escape. Unlock and carefully open the lid. Transfer the chicken to a serving platter. Discard the thyme sprig. Set the pressure cooker to the “simmer” program and reduce the sauce until the desired consistency is reached, about 3 minutes. Stir in the thyme leaves. Serve the Chicken Marsala over the pasta.
