Instant Pot Champagne Chicken is ultra creamy, rich, and delicious. The sauce is full of mushrooms and tastes fantastic served over rice. This restaurant quality instant pot meal can be on the table in under 30 minutes.
Instant Pot Champagne Chicken is an impressive and elegant dish that is so easy to make. Champagne adds a wonderful, delicate flavor to the sauce. The sauce has tons of flavor from garlic, shallots, Italian seasoning, and the best part– boursin cheese. It adds an incredible richness and helps thicken the sauce.
The sauce is also flavored with Parmesan cheese. Trust me, this is one of the most delicious sauces ever.
Tips for making Instant Pot Champagne Chicken:
- You can use either champagne or Prosecco as long as it is dry and not sweet.
- Leave the mushrooms out if you don’t like them.
- Try adding a little baby spinach.
- Boneless, skinless chicken thighs can be used instead of chicken breasts.
- Finely chopped sweet onion can be used instead of shallot.
- Tastes great served with asparagus or broccoli.
- Boursin cheese comes in different flavors. You can use any that you like. I use Garlic and Herb.
I use a 6-quart Instant Pot for this recipe. The chicken breasts are cut in half horizontally into thinner pieces. Not only are they more appropriately sized for a single serving, they cook faster as well.
