Filled with yummy Mediterranean flavors like tomatoes, oregano, and Kalamata olives, Low FODMAP Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore is a delicious and practically hands-off supper option! Serve over polenta, rice or mashed potatoes.


  • 1 tablespoon garlic-infused olive oil
  • 5 chicken thighs (about 1 to 1.25 pounds)
  • 1 medium  carrot, peeled and sliced into ½-inch rounds
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can crushed tomatoes with juice
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons capers
  • ⅓ cup kalamata olive halves
  • Salt and pepper

Serving Suggestions: Steamed rice, polenta, or baked potato

Optional Garnishes: Thinly sliced basil or chopped Italian parsley


  1. Select the “Saute” setting on the Instant Pot. Once hot, add oil and chicken. Saute the chicken for 1-2 minute per side.
  2. Cancel the “Saute” setting. Add carrot, bell pepper, tomatoes, and oregano. Place lid on top of Instant Pot and secure. Set vent to “Sealing”.
  3. Select the “Meat” setting on the Instant Pot. Adjust the time to 20 minutes on “High Pressure” and cook. After cooking, let the pressure naturally release for 15 minutes. Carefully switch the vent to “Venting” to release any remaining pressure. Remove lid.
  4. Stir in capers and kalamata olives. Adjust flavor with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve warm over rice, polenta, or baked potato and top with basil or parsley.
