If you’re new to the Instant Pot, start here:
Here are the seasonings we will be using:
** Garam Masala can be hard to find at your local store, but you can order it on Amazon here: Garam Masala Seasoning
–Cayenne Pepper (optional)
Start out by dicing the onion and chopping the garlic. Add the tomato sauce, garlic, onion and seasonings to the Instant Pot and stir. Then lay the chicken in the sauce.
Close the lid, secure the venting knob and point it to “sealing.” Cook on HIGH pressure for 20 minutes before allowing the pressure to release naturally. (This will take another 15-30 minutes)
Remove the chicken from the Instant Pot and slice.
Turn the Instant Pot to sauté mode and adjust it to “Less” then add the butter or coconut oil, heavy cream or coconut milk and the cilantro. Allow the butter to melt and stir. Return the chicken to the Instant Pot.
Serve over Instant Pot White Rice or brown rice and Enjoy! 🙂
