1/1 Photo of Chicken Cacciatore (Pressure Cooker)
Modified from "Pressure Perfect" by Lorna Sass. I got a pressure cooker last Christmas and until yesterday, it was still sitting in the box. I vowed to use it before this Christmas, and this was the first thing I made in it. I made a few substitutions based on what I had on hand, and I was so happy with the results. Serve with rice, pasta or potatoes.

Units: US | Metric
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 3 shallots, chopped
- 3 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 medium green bell pepper, seeded and finely diced
- 1/2 cup white wine (not cooking wine)
- 10 ounces mushrooms, sliced
- 3 lbs bone-in skinless chicken breast halves or 3 lbs skinless chicken thighs
- 2 cups crushed tomatoes
- 2 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 (6 ounce) can pitted black olives or 1 (6 ounce) can kalamata olives, drained
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)
- 1/8-1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese or 1/2 cup romano cheese
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 1Heat the oil in a 4-quart or larger cooker. Add the shallots and bell pepper and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the shallots soften slightly, about 2 minutes.
- 2Stir in the wine and boil until about half evaporates. Scrape up any browned bits sticking to the bottom of the cooker.
- 3Stir in the mushrooms and garlic. Set the chicken on top. Cover the chicken with crushed tomatoes. Do not stir. Plop the tomato paste on top.
- 4Lock the lid in place.
- 5Over high heat bring to high pressure. Reduce the heat just enough to maintain high pressure and cook for 8 minutes.
- 6Turn off the heat.
- 7Allow the pressure to come down naturally. Remove the lid, tilting it away from you to allow steam to escape.
- 8Stir in the olives, parsley, red pepper flakes, cheese, and salt and pepper, to taste.
