  • 1 lb raw sweet Italian chicken or turkey sausage, casing removed
  • 4 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 6 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 container sliced fresh mushrooms (I used baby bellas)

Instructions

  1. Set Instant Pot to saute and add 2 tsp of olive olive to the bottom of the inner liner. Add chicken sausage to pan to brown. Once cooked through, remove from pan and set aside.
  2. Add remaining 2 tsp of olive oil to pot and add onions and celery. Season with some salt and pepper and saute for 2-3 minutes or until onions start to turn translucent. Add in mushrooms and season again. Saute for an additional 2-4 minutes or until the mushrooms begin to brown.
