This Chicken Marbella has fantastic flavor – the spices, white wine, and dried fruit really amp up this chicken to a whole new level.  I love the sweet/salty combo of this dish – its a perfectly easy throw-together meal!

Chicken Marbella is an American dish, not at all Spanish in origin. It combines chicken with potatoes, carrots, prunes, onions, garlic, and white wine. I first had this at my mother-in-law’s house in Canada and absolutely loved it!

This Instant Pot Chicken Marbella Is:

  • Hearty
  • Satisfying
  • Packed with Flavor
  • A Little Salty
  • A Little Sweet
  • Easy to make in the Pressure Cooker or Slow Cooker (both instructions below!)
  • Gluten Free

Instant Pot Chicken Dinner Recipes Any Night of the Week

For all my recipes I use the 8-Quart Instant Pot Ultra, its larger than the standard models (which are only 6 quart) so I have extra room to meal prep and batch cook more meals for the week. The Ultra model also has some great extra settings like cake baking and yogurt making which are really neat. I love that everything can cook in one pot, which makes for way less dishes and hands-off cooking. The Instant Pot is hands-down my favorite kitchen appliance, and actually makes my life so much easier.

What’s In This Chicken Marbella?

  • Onions, Carrots, PotatoesI stock up on organic produce with Misfits Market  – they have a fantastic selection of in-season fruits & veggies, healthy pantry items, and great food finds for a fraction of grocery store prices! You can get $10 off your first $30 box by clicking here! 
  • Chicken – I used chicken breasts from a local market. If you can source meat locally, it has so much more flavor AND supports local farmers.
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil: I like to use this fruity Zoe olive oil which has a fantastic flavor and deep color- it’s inexpensive & like to keep a few liters stocked up in my pantry.  For the quality of oil you get, it’s an excellent value.
  • White Wine
  • Prunes – I like the pitted prunes, which taste amazing in this recipe.
  • Kalamata Olives: make sure they are pitted!
  • Capers
  • Low Sodium Vegetable Stock – I like to use this low sodium vegetable stock for my recipes because it has great flavor
  • Oregano: a spice I always put in my stews, tacos, or fajitas!  This dried oregano has a bright and earthy flavor.
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste

I made a list of my 125 favorite gluten free pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my gluten free recipes here that are on The Herbeevore.

  2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and place skin down in the instant pot.  Cook for 10 minutes until the skin of the chicken begins to brown.  Flip over and cook for another 7 or 8 minutes.  Remove chicken from the Instant Pot And transfer to a plate.
  3. To the instant pot, add the garlic and sauté for 2 or 3 minutes until it begins to brown.  Add the wine and deglaze the bottom, scraping any pieces of chicken or garlic that stuck to the bottom of the pot.
  4. Add the onion, carrots, potatoes, prunes, olives, capers, Vegetable stock, brown sugar and oregano. Stir to combine.
  5. Place the wire rack insert over the Vegetables, and add the chicken, skin side up.
