I’m giving you a sneak peek today of the Costco Freezer Instant Pot Meal Plan that will be coming soon! Pressure Cooker Chicken and Mushrooms is one of the meals that I prepped and froze a couple of weeks ago, and then threw in my pressure cooker today. The actual meal in the meal plan doesn’t have the added tomatoes or parsley, but for our purposes today I felt them absolutely necessary!

This was a frozen block of {raw} food when I put it in my pressure cooker, but the recipe below is written for those of you who are making it same day. If you want to prep it ahead and then make it from frozen, add the first 8 ingredients to your freezer bag, cook, then pick up with step 5 in the recipe. Cooking chicken from frozen in the pressure cooker makes it a bit more tough, but with the sauce to soften it up, I don’t think you’ll even notice! And, if you’re cooking from fresh, you don’t need to battle that problem anyway.
