The biggest beauty of the Instant Pot is how you can create stellar one-pot dishes, and cook them pretty quickly. When my family began begging me for Asiago Chicken, I thought I don’t want to go through the massive work it takes to create this entire dish, dirty tons of pans leaving me with a big cleanup. But then it clicked, give it a try in the Instant Pot! At first, I was a little worried if it would work, but to my amazement, it turned out so creamy and cheesy, the whole family gobbled it right up. This one pot Instant Pot asiago chicken with mushroom risotto is a family favorite, especially when it is made in the instant pot! Prep and cooking was a breeze, as well as the cleanup!
Before the Instant Pot came around, I will admit sometimes chicken dishes were a hit and miss for me. I struggled with finding the right cook time for the chicken. Sometimes the chicken got done earlier and I should have pulled it out because it got to dry. I never fully mastered the perfect cook time for chicken. But with the instant pot, you select the cook time and it does the work. The pressure builds up and cooks the chicken perfectly and locks in that moisture and flavor. So you never end up with a dry chicken, like I would have.
One pot dishes are always a huge favorite of mine. I love not having a whole mess in my kitchen to clean up. Plus this one when you combine all the ingredients together it really blends the flavors. This asiago chicken with mushroom risotto truly can’t be beaten. It leaves you with a melt-in-your-mouth quality of rich flavors and a hint of garlic. We served this up with some rolls and every one of us used our rolls to soak up all the goodness on the plate. It truly had such a stunning blend of flavors, we have to keep making this dish on the regular.
