- 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
In a small mixing bowl, combine chicken broth and all-purpose flour. Mix until smooth. Set aside.
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.
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.
Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 20 minutes.
Open the pressure cooker, using the Quick Release method. Using the tongs, transfer cooked chicken pieces to a large serving bowl, reserving cooking liquid.
Bring reserved sauce to a simmer. Stir in heavy cream. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute.
Pour sauce over the chicken. Serve over the cooked rice.
