  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot(R)) and select Saute function. Heat oil in the hot pot and add carrots, celery, and leek. Cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables start to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add tomato paste and cook for 1 minute. Stir in thyme, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper. Pour broth into the pot, add farro, and stir. Push chicken breasts down into the liquid. Close and lock the lid.

Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Transfer chicken to a clean work surface and roughly chop; return to the pot and stir. Taste and adjust salt. Serve.
