The Instant Pot excels at stews and this Instant Pot Chicken and Chorizo Stew is no exception.
A tip: a teaspoon of my Vegetable Stock Paste will add flavour.

Instant Pot Chicken and Chorizo Stew
- Instant Pot
- 2 chorizo sausages approx 150 g, cut lengthways and then again (so that you end up with four thinner sausageand then diced. I like using cooking chorizo (easy to buy in any supermarkebut feel free to use any
- 50 ml red wine + a dash more
- 2 onions cut in thin wedges
- 1 or 2 red peppers sliced in long strips
- 2 garlic cloves unpeeled (feel free to add more if you like garlic!)
- 750 g potatoes peeled and quartered (if very big cut in biggish chunks), floury potatoes will work well, I used King Edward, around 750 g
- 3 chunky chicken breasts frozen or fresh (or more if you have more, if you for example double the ingredients, don’t double the stock, chicken releases liquid as it cooks)
- 150 ml water or stock
- Spring onions or salad onions optional
- Press the Sauté button followed by the Adjust button to adjust to More (or if you have v3 of the DUO, press Sauté a few times until it’s set to More).
- Add the chorizo and stir. After a minute or so add the red wine. Add the onions, red pepper and garlic after a couple of minutes and give them a good stir to coat in the chorizo juices.
- Add the potatoes and stir well to mix and coat in the chorizo juices, keep sautéeing for a few minutes, stirring regularly. Scrape the bottom well with a wooden spoon and some water/stock/wine to deglaze (don't forget those Golden Rules!).
- Place the chicken breasts on top of the potatoes, season with salt and pepper.
- Add about 150 ml water (and a tablespoon of my vegetable stock paste if using), lock the lid in, make sure the steam release handle is pointing to Sealing. Press Manual, 8 minutes, natural release, safe to leave on keep warm until you’re ready to eat. Enjoy!
