Step 3: Cook Chicken

Pour tomato sauce over chicken. Lock the lid and flip the valve to "Sealing." Push the "Manual" button and set the time to 12 minutes on high pressure. When chicken is done, release the valve to "Venting" to quick release the steam. Sprinkle mozzarella on top and replace lid another 5 minutes to let the cheese melt. Serve over pasta, rice, or quinoa while warm.
