All the delicious flavors of the Italian favorite you love - tomatoes, peppers, onion and spices, all simmered together in one pot! And that means easy cleanup and a delicious dinner in no time!
Wash & pat dry chicken pieces then season with salt, pepper and paprika.
Turn Instant Pot to saute and add 1-2 tablespoons of oil. Saute chicken pieces, in batches if necessary, for 6 minutes per side.
Remove chicken from Instant Pot and set aside.
If needed, add a little more olive oil to Instant Pot. Saute pepper and onion for 5 minutes or until soft.
Turn off Instant Pot. Add chicken back in.
Drain whole tomatoes, reserving juice. Place tomatoes around chicken and add bay leaf.
Mix remaining tomato liquid with 1/4 cup flour and stir until well blended. Add remaining ingredients and stir until blended. Pour liquid over chicken.
Close Instant Pot and set to high pressure and cook chicken for 25 minutes.
Let pressure release naturally for 15 minutes then release manually to alleviate remaining pressure.
Remove bay leaf and serve over rice, pasta, riced cauliflower, zucchini noodles or quinoa.
