  • Slice the chicken breasts in half and pound so they are even.
  • Add the chicken, Italian seasoning, salt and garlic to a mixing bowl. Massage marinade into the chicken. (see note)
  • Select Sauté or Browning on your pressure cooker and allow to heat.
  • When hot, add oil and butter and place the chicken into pressure cooker cooking pot. Brown the pieces of chicken for 10 seconds on each side.
  • Pour in chicken broth, cream and seasoned salt.  Quickly deglaze the cooking pot, making sure nothing is stuck on the bottom of the pot.
  • Lock on Lid and close Pressure Valve. Cook at High Pressure for 1 minute.  When Beep sounds, wait 2 minutes and then carefully release the rest of the pressure.
  • Select Sauté/Browning on your pressure cooker and bring to slow simmer. Mix in cheese and sun dried tomatoes. Simmer to thicken sauce, if desired. Stir in spinach right before serving.
  • Enjoy over zoodles or pasta.  (See notes on how to cook pasta at the same time.)


If you like Mushrooms, add 6 ounces of Cremini Mushrooms to the cooking pot after adding in the Chicken Broth.
*For a creamier sauce, add 2 Tablespoons of cream cheese when you add the cream.
For extra sauce, simple double the seasonings, liquids and Parmesan cheese.
To make this a Tuscan Chicken Pasta Dish, double all seasonings, add two cups of chicken broth and 8 ounces of pasta prior to setting pressure cook time.
