Pressure Cooker Chicken Thighs in Wine Sauce

Pressure Cooker Chicken Thighs in Wine Sauce


  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 Cup of diced tomatoes
  • 6 bone-in chicken thighs, skin removed (about 2-1/4 pounds)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup white wine or additional chicken broth
  • 3 red onions, thinly sliced
  • Pasta


Select saute setting on a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker and adjust for medium heat; add 1 Tbsp. butter. Sprinkle chicken with salt, pepper, Italian seasoning and smoked paprika. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and toss to coat; shake off excess.

Heat the remaining butter in pressure cooker; brown chicken on both sides. Remove. Add the broth and wine to pressure cooker. Cook 2-3 minutes, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Press cancel.

Return chicken to cooker; add red onions. Lock lid and close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 10 minutes. Let pressure naturally release for 10 minutes and quick-release any remaining pressure. (A thermometer inserted in chicken should read at least 165°.)

Serve favorite pasta according to taste and plate!
