This Instant Pot Chicken Stew is a comforting and flavorful one-pot meal that’s perfect for a chilly day. Tender chicken is cooked with vegetables and herbs in a savory broth, and the addition of frozen peas at the end adds a pop of color and sweetness.

  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 4 Servings 1x


Units Scale
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 3 celery stalks, chopped
  • 2 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 14.5ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Press the sauté function on the Instant Pot and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the chicken and cook until browned, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the onion and garlic, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the carrots, celery, chicken broth, diced tomatoes, thyme, rosemary, and bay leaf. Cancel the sauté function and stir everything together.
  4. Close the Instant Pot lid, and turn the valve to the sealing position. Set the Instant Pot to high pressure for 10 minutes cooking time.
  5. When the cooking cycle is complete, allow the pressure to naturally release for 5 minutes, then carefully turn the valve to the venting position to release the remaining pressure.
  6. Open the Instant Pot lid and use tongs to remove the bay leaf to discard. Add the frozen peas and stir until the peas are heated through (just a couple of minutes).
  7. Season the stew with salt and black pepper, to taste.
  8. Serve the Instant Pot chicken stew hot.


  1. You can also add other vegetables or ingredients to the stew, such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, mushrooms, or corn, based on your preferences.
  2. Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Reheat before serving.
