Ok you guys, get excited. Cooking chicken in the Instant Pot is a total game changer! Chicken is typically one of my least favorite things to make ... I always worry about undercooking it, which means that most of the time I overcook it and end up with dried out chicken, which is never tasty. I'm happy to say those days are long gone now that I cook it in my instant pot, and I'm telling you, it's perfect every single time. Flavorful, juicy, and it shreds so easily. And get this... it's as simple as putting chicken and salsa in the instant pot, turning it on for 10 minutes, and walking away. Seriously doesn't get much easier!
I like to make a big batch of this shredded salsa chicken on a Sunday or Monday and then use it for several meals throughout the week. Aside from being the perfect thing for a healthy taco night, I'll also throw it in my salads, I'll serve it over cauliflower rice and veggies and make taco bowls with it, I'll make chicken quesadillas with Siete Foods grain-free tortillas, or I'll make chard or collard wraps with it... it's literally the perfect protein to add to any meal!
So a few notes about this recipe and some helpful hints for the instant pot in general...
Ok I think that covers it! Let's get into this super easy recipe, shall we?
4 organic boneless skinless chicken breasts, or about 2 lbs
1 cup or so of your favorite salsa (I love salsa verde)
Salt & pepper
How simple is that!? I'm telling you, total game changer! So excited for you to try it out!
