Instant Pot salsa chicken is a quick dinner and meal prep essential ready in less than 30 minutes - even from frozen chicken breasts!
free from: wheat/ gluten, soy, dairy, egg, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts
Place chicken breasts in the Instant Pot with salsa and water.
For frozen chicken breasts, set to high pressure for 15 minutes.
For fresh chicken breasts, set to high pressure for 10 minutes.
When the Instant Pot is done, carefully do a quick pressure release.
Remove the chicken and either shred by hand with forks or quickly shred the chicken using a stand mixer. Add the chicken back to the salsa liquid in the Instant Pot and stir to combine.
Serve immediately or store in airtight containers in the fridge or freezer. Enjoy!
Nutrition information may vary based on type of salsa used.
Feel like your salsa is a little watery? Toss the shredded chicken back in the juices in the Instant Pot, then turn on the saute function for a few minutes (stirring occasionally) to reduce the liquid.
Don't have an Instant Pot but still want salsa chicken? I don't blame you! Use the same ingredients but place in a slow cooker on low for 3-4 hours for fresh chicken or 5-6 hours for frozen chicken.
