How to Make Chicken with Artichokes in the Instant Pot

Chicken with Artichokes is an easy recipe to make. One of the first steps is to prepare the artichoke.

How to Cook an Artichoke

If you're not familiar with how to cook artichokes, it's easier than you might think. Especially when using a pressure cooker.

Artichokes look intimidating, and beautiful. To cook these gorgeous green orbs, cut the stem off above the lower leaves.

Next, trim about 1/4 inch off of each petal. Use kitchen scissors and clip off the top of each petal. After that, cut the artichoke in half.

For this recipe, a simple seasoning of salt and pepper is used. I love this set of sea salts and pepper because it allows me to change things up just a little bit from time to time. This Mediterranean spiced sea salt is also a fun way to mix things up.

Add oil to the Instant Pot and allow the pan to get hot on saute mode. Once it is hot, add the chicken and sear on each side. After than, remove the chicken and set it aside.

Toss the mushrooms, artichoke, and the onion and garlic powders to the pot and continue to saute for 3-4 minutes. Stir every 30 seconds to a minute.

Remove artichoke and mushrooms from the pan and deglaze the inner pot with water. Add in an Instant Pot steamer basket over the water.

Layer the chicken with the artichoke and mushrooms on top of it in the steamer basket. Set the Instant Pot to cook and dinner is almost ready!

    1. Thanks for catching that! I was working on developing a couple recipes at the same time and that was a typo, which has been removed. You could certainly add spinach to this recipe, or serve on the side, but its not an ingredient in this specific recipe.

  1. Your recipe said to remove onions and mushrooms before pressure cooking. No mention of when to add it back, can you clarify?

    1. Hi Del! Thanks for the question. I updated the recipe because I've made it again since I originally posted the recipe and pressure cooked the artichokes and mushrooms along with the chicken. Remove everything but the liquid at the end, and then you can make a gravy with the sauce. The recipe instructions are updated on the post.
