~Hey there!~ Tonight’s dinner was the BOMB! I mean that in a good way. In less than 45 minutes I had dinner on the table and it tasted like it would have taken all day to make. Today I am sharing how to make chicken cacciatore in the Instant Pot or your Ninja Foodi just the same.


This is a very inexpensive meal to make as well. You can pick up a large pack of drumstick chicken for less than $7.00 at most grocery stores. My pack was about $5.50 and I had 15 drum sticks. I only used 10 for this meal and will save the other 5 for later on for another recipe.

For this recipe, you will need a can of 29 oz. Crushed tomatoes

15 oz. Diced seasoned tomatoes with Basil, garlic, and oregano

Fresh or frozen sliced green, red, and yellow bell peppers with white onions. I love Bird’s Eye brand. These are great.

Fresh garlic, bay leaves, and fresh basil. First I added a bit of olive oil to my Instant Pot and set it on the normal saute setting. I added 10 drumsticks and seasoning, and a clove of chopped garlic. Lightly saute on each side. Remove from pot and set aside.

Add a can of crushed tomatoes, diced tomatoes, basil to taste, and a few bay leaves and pepper. I also added a splash of red wine. Not cooking wine, real red wine. Just a splash will do.

Add your drumsticks back in the pot and submerge. Add in one cup of water. Set pot to Manual High Pressure for 15 minutes. Let the pot naturally release when finished.

Your chicken should be falling off the bone tender.

Serve over rice or pasta. Uncle Ben’s rice never fails me. 2 cups of rice, 2 cups of water, 2 teaspoons of butter. Set pot on rice and in 8 minutes, perfecto!
