Step 1

In a small bowl, mix together salt, pepper, garlic and onion powders and Italian seasoning.

Step 2

Sprinkle over each chicken breast, on each side.

Step 3

Make sure the stainless steel insert is in your Instant Pot.

Step 4

Press "saute" setting and wait 2 minutes. Add olive oil to the Instant Pot.

Step 5

Place chicken breast in the pot and brown on each side for about 3 minutes. This is when you are creating the flavor so be patient.

Step 6

Remove chicken onto a plate and set aside.

Step 7

Add minced garlic to the Instant Pot and stir a few times. Let is brown slightly in the leftover oil. Press "cancel/off" button.

Step 8

Add 1/4 cup of the chicken stock to the Instant Pot and deglaze the bottom by scraping any cooked on bits with a wooden spoon. Add remaining stock to the pot.

Step 9

Place trivet in the Instant Pot and arrange all chicken breasts on top.

Step 10

Close the lid and set valve to "sealing" position. The newer models do it on their own.

Step 11

Make sure the Instant Pot is set to cook at HIGH pressure. Press "manual" setting and set timer to 5 minutes. The IP will beep after a few seconds and it will start coming to pressure. This will take about 5 minutes.

Step 12

Once the timer is done, press "cancel/off" button and do not flip the sealing valve. Let the Instant Pot release the pressure naturaly. It will take about 5 minutes. Carefully open the lid away from your face (there will be some steam left in the pot). Remove the chicken onto a plate and set aside. Remove trivet from Instant Pot.

Step 13

In a small bowl, whisk together cornstarch and water. Add to the liquid remaining in the pot. Whisk well. You can press "saute" setting and cook it for a minute or two until thickened.

Step 14

Serve chicken with gravy.
