Instant Pot Sausage and Chicken Stew

For a night that company surprises you and you have to throw together a quick dinner. We give you a super easy Instant Pot recipe that we made from frozen chicken and sausage. You can adjust the amount of chicken and sausage for the number of people you are serving with no need to adjust other ingredients or cooking time. We figured one thigh and a half a sausage per serving. Enjoy with polenta or crusty bread and with Cabernet Sauvignon Riserva.


Makes about 5 servings

2 cups chicken broth
1-pound frozen chicken thighs (bone-in and skin on)
8 oz frozen Italian sausage
2 onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 bay leaves
2 tsp dried thyme
2-(15 oz.) cans of cannellini beans (undrained)
1 tbsp tomato paste


Pour chicken broth on bottom of Instant Pot. Place frozen chicken thighs on the bottom of the pot and place the sausage on top of chicken.

Cover chicken and sausage with the onions, garlic, bay leaves, and thyme.

Add cannellini beans and liquid from cans in and top with tomato paste.

Close lid and set to pressure cook, high pressure for 20 minutes.

Once done, use instant release and serve immediately.
