Recipe Notes

Saute onions and peppers in olive oil (use Instant pot on Saute or in skillet if using crock pot).   cook for 3-4 minutes or until tender.

Add marinara, pesto and salt, cook together for 1 minute.   Add chicken breasts to pot.

Instant Pot:   cook on high pressure for 12 minutes.   Manual release.    Remove chicken and shred.   Add mushrooms to broth and veggies in pot and cook on saute mode for 3-4 minutes.   Add shredded chicken back, and simmer for 3-4 minutes.

Crock pot:  Pour 1/2 cup water to pot; Add veggies mixture and mushrooms.     Place chicken breasts on top and cook on low for 4-5 hours.

Top with parmesan if desired

**I served this on top of spaghetti squash which I cooked in Instant pot for 10 minutes.   So easy!
