Pressure cooker chicken fricassee. This easy-to-make pressure cooker chicken fricassee is a quick and easy dinner recipe. It’s served with rice, which makes it a complete meal. With just three ingredients, this meal is perfect for busy weeknights.

Why would I want to Pressure-Cook Chicken?

Pressure-cooking chicken is a simple and easy way to cook it. It is also a great way of saving time and making your life easy.

Pressure-cooking chicken is a simple, quick, and efficient way of cooking meat. It saves time and energy as well as makes your kitchen cleaner.

Pressure-cooking chicken can be done in two ways – either by using the stovetop or by using an electric pressure cooker. The stovetop method requires less effort but the electric pressure cooker gives you faster results with less effort.

How to Make Chicken Fricassee in a Pressure Cooker

To make chicken fricassee in a pressure cooker, you’ll need a few key ingredients and some simple steps. Start by heating a tablespoon of olive oil and a tablespoon of unsalted butter in the pressure cooker. Once the oil and butter are hot, add the chicken pieces and brown them on all sides. This will help to seal the juices and add flavor to the dish.

Next, remove the chicken from the pressure cooker and set it aside. In the same cooker, add the chopped red bell pepper and sliced button mushrooms. Sauté them until they are tender and slightly browned. This will add a delicious depth of flavor to the fricassee.

Once the vegetables are cooked, sprinkle two tablespoons of all-purpose flour over them and stir well to combine. This will help to thicken the sauce and give it a creamy texture. Gradually pour in 1¼ cups of chicken broth, stirring constantly to prevent any lumps from forming.

Return the chicken to the pressure cooker, making sure to coat it well with the sauce. Close the pressure cooker lid and cook on high pressure for about 15 minutes. This will ensure that the chicken is cooked through and tender.

After the cooking time is complete, carefully release the pressure from the cooker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Once the pressure has been released, open the lid and give the fricassee a good stir. Serve it hot with some crusty bread or over a bed of rice for a satisfying and flavorful meal.

Chicken Fricassee Serving Suggestions

Chicken fricassee is a versatile and delicious dish that can be served in a variety of ways. Here are some serving suggestions to elevate your chicken fricassee:

1. Over Mashed Potatoes: Spoon the creamy chicken fricassee over a bed of fluffy mashed potatoes. The rich sauce will soak into the potatoes, creating a comforting and satisfying meal.

2. With Crusty Bread: Serve the chicken fricassee with a side of crusty bread for dipping. The bread will help to soak up the flavorful sauce and add a nice texture to each bite.

3. Over Rice: For a heartier meal, serve the chicken fricassee over a bed of steamed rice. The rice will absorb the delicious sauce, making each bite even more flavorful.

4. With Steamed Vegetables: Add some color and nutrition to your plate by serving the chicken fricassee with a side of steamed vegetables. Broccoli, carrots, and green beans are all great options that pair well with the creamy sauce.

5. In a Bread Bowl: For a fun and unique presentation, hollow out a bread bowl and fill it with the chicken fricassee. The bread will soak up the sauce and add an extra layer of flavor to the dish.

6. With a Side Salad: Balance out the richness of the chicken fricassee with a fresh side salad. A simple green salad with a tangy vinaigrette will complement the flavors of the dish.

7. As a Filling for Crepes: Get creative and use the chicken fricassee as a filling for savory crepes. The tender chicken and creamy sauce will be a delicious surprise inside the delicate crepes.

  • 1¼ cups (310 ml) chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • whole chicken, cut into parts, giblets and neck removed
  • 1 red bell pepper, cored and chopped
  • 3/4 pound (360 g) button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon loosely packed fresh sage leaves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon stemmed fresh thyme leaves
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) dry white wine
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) heavy cream


Step 1

In a small mixing bowl, combine chicken broth and all-purpose flour. Mix until smooth. Set aside.

Step 2

Melt the butter in an electric pressure cooker turned to the sauté mode. Add half of the chicken pieces. Cook, turning once, until golden (for about 3-4 minutes). Using tongs, remove cooked chicken from the pressure cooker. Transfer to a large bowl. Repeat the same method with the remaining chicken.

Step 3

Add bell peppers to the pressure cooker and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Stir in mushrooms and continue to cook, stirring, until they give their liquid, and it evaporates (for about 5-6 minutes). Stir in sage, thyme, and garlic. Cook, stirring, for a further 1 minute. Pour in dry white wine. Scrape up any browned bits in the pressure cooker as the wine comes to a simmer. Stir in the broth mixture. Return cooked chicken pieces to the sauce. Pour accumulated juices from the bowl over the chicken.

Step 4

Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 20 minutes.

Step 5

Open the pressure cooker, using the Quick Release method. Using the tongs, transfer cooked chicken pieces to a large serving bowl, reserving cooking liquid.

Step 6

Bring reserved sauce to a simmer. Stir in heavy cream. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Step 7

Pour sauce over the chicken. Serve over the cooked rice.
