Brown Chicken Thighs or Chicken Breasts: Heat up Instant Pot using Sauté More function. Wait until it says HOT. This prevents chicken from sticking to the pot.Pat dry chicken and season one side gently with salt + black pepper. Add in 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter or olive oil. Quickly add in the chicken to prevent butter from burning. While one side is browning, season the other side with more salt + black pepper. Brown first side for 3.5 minutes, then the other side for 2 minutes. Set the chicken aside. *Pro Tip: For better browning results, brown chicken in 2 batches using the same cooking times.
Saute Garlic & Mushrooms: Add minced garlic, then saute for 30 seconds until fragrant. Add sliced mushroom, season with salt + black pepper, then saute for a minute. Add 2 tsp (2.4g) Italian seasonings, then saute for another minute.
Deglaze Instant Pot: Mix 1 tbsp (15ml) soy sauce + ¾ cup (188ml) unsalted chicken stock together, then pour in Instant Pot and deglaze (scrub all the flavorful brown bits off the bottom). Give it a quick mix.
Create Tuscan Chicken Sauce: Set aside chicken, bring the liquid mixture back to a boil (Saute button). Add in 1 cup (40g) spinach and 60 - 80g sun-dried tomatoes, then cook for 30 seconds. Give them a quick stir. Mix in 1/2 cup (125ml) heavy cream and 1/4 - 1/2 cup (16 - 32g) freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
Thicken Tuscan Chicken Sauce & Seasoning: Mix 3.5 tbsp (32g) cornstarch + ¼ cup (63ml) cold water together in a small mixing bowl. Add the cornstarch mixture one third at a time to thicken the Tuscan Chicken sauce until desired thickness. Taste and season with more salt, cheese, soy sauce if necessary.
