This Instant Pot Chicken Gravy is a no-brainer. The chicken turns out super juicy and moist. Something that might take you over an hour to make over the stove top, can now take less than 30 minutes! Already a time saver, this saves you oodles of time by being dinner ready with this incredible Instant Pot version!
Juicy tender chicken with nice smooth gravy is a classic. One simply can't get bored of it that fast! This recipe is made entirely from scratch with no gravy mix or canned soup. Yet, the gravy is packed with tons of flavor.
I usually leave my chicken gravy in the pot or in an airtight container most of the time and the chicken still stays very moist and tender like the day you made it!
When my husband gifted me the instant pot, I never knew just how versatile it was and just how much I'd be using it! Now, it's quite possible my favorite kitchen appliance I use at least three time a week!
Especially this gravy recipe. This chicken and gravy is all about the gravy. The last thing you want is your gravy to be bland and without flavor. But the instant pot totally changes that by allowing all those amazing flavors to blend and hits this gravy out of the ball park.
Heres how to make it:
Saute your veggies. Be sure to saute your vegetables in the inner pot of the instant pot. Making the onions and carrots very soft and caramel color. This will also give your gravy some flavor and color. Add in your garlic and stir just until you get a nice garlicky aroma.
Add in your Dry Ingredients. Add in your pepper, salt, and bouillon, as well as any other seasonings you'd like to add. You could either use bouillon cubes or Better Than Bouillon, if you have that.
Add in Your Chicken. Now's the time to add in your chicken and water. I also recommend adding chicken broth for that extra something. And to also mute the sodium just a tad bit.
Pressure Cook. Add in your bay leaf and close the instant pot with the lid. Pressure cook for 30-35 minutes. Then let the pressure naturally release for about twenty minutes after the timer goes off.
