Instant Pot Chicken Parmesan

INGREDIENTS:
  1. 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  2. 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  3. 1-1/2 cups prepared marinara sauce
  4. 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  5. Freshly ground black pepper
  6. 4 thin chicken cutlets (12 ounces total)
  7. ½ teaspoon kosher salt, or more to taste
  8. ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  9. 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, grated
  10. Chopped basil, for garnish (optional)

DIRECTIONS:
  • Using the sauté function (on low, if possible), heat the oil in the pressure cooker pot. Stir in the garlic and cook until just turning golden, about 2 minutes. Stir in the marinara sauce, 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.
  • Increase the sauté heat to medium.
  • Season the chicken with the salt, oregano, and pepper to taste. Nestle the cutlets into the sauce, overlapping as little as possible, then spoon the sauce over to cover the chicken.
