20 FAVORITE INSTANT POT CHICKEN RECIPES
Chicken has always been a large part of my family’s diet. In an attempt to watch my husband’s cholesterol, I have always cooked lots of chicken and fish. I have also been stocking up on chicken.
My supermarket has been having a buy one get one chicken sale for two weeks now. This is the perfect time for me to stock up on chicken. I love the flexibility of my instant pot in that I can use frozen chicken.
What Is The Best Chicken To Cook In The Instant Pot
The beauty of your electric pressure cooker is all chicken works in the pressure cooker. You are able to use all cuts of chicken.
When you pressure cook chicken it helps to lock in the moisture, so you get a juicy and super flavorful chicken. Whether it is my favorite honey garlic chicken or chicken drumsticks.
What Temperature Does Chicken Need To Be To Be Done
Chicken needs to be 165 degrees. If you are looking to check your chicken use a meat thermometer. Then if you are using bone-in chicken make sure to not touch the bone with the meat thermometer.
If you touch the bone it will give you a false reading. So always make sure to ensure your chicken is the proper temperature before slicing and serving up.
Can You Cook Frozen Chicken In Instant Pot
Absolutely! You can cook all cuts of chicken from frozen in the Instant Pot. It just takes longer for your Instant Pot to come to pressure.
The reason being is it will begin to thaw the chicken before it builds full pressure to start cooking. Make sure your vent is pushed to seal.
Can You Stack Chicken In Instant Pot
You are more than welcome to stack chicken in the Instant Pot. Just make sure you are seasoning your chicken before stacking to ensure the flavor gets to all pieces of the chicken. Otherwise you might find the flavoring is a bit off in spots.
