This Instant Pot Salsa Chicken is the perfect first meal for you to prepare in your instant pot. Two ingredients is all you need for this simple dish. It is not short on flavor so be prepared to fall in love.
This salsa chicken may be my boys new favorite. It definitely is one of my new favorites. This is such an easy recipe with just 2 main ingredients, salsa and chicken. The chicken is so tender and I was able to shred the meat with two forks. This dish could not be any simpler to whip up, making this a perfect weeknight meal.
You can also prepare this to be used for some easy meal prep. You can use the chicken for tacos, chicken cheese quesadillas, salad and so much more. I like to keep some in the fridge so that my boys can quickly warm some up and make a quick soft taco to eat, rather than grabbing a handful of cookies.
If you love this recipe you will definitely love Crack Chicken. Another incredibly simple dish to prepare.
One of the easiest Instant Pot recipes to make. Perfect for a quick weeknight meal.
- 4 Chicken Breasts skinless/boneless
- 1 Tbsp Taco Seasoning
- 16 oz Salsa
Put 1/2 cup of salsa in the inner pot (spread it so it is covering the bottom). Then add the chicken breasts on top.
Sprinkle taco seasoning over the chicken.
Pour the remaining salsa over the chicken, covering it.
Manual HIgh pressure for 15 minutes. (Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button and then the + or - to choose 15 minutes).
When the cooking cycle has ended, let the pot sit undisturbed for 10 minutes to naturally release the pressure. Then, after 10 minutes, manually release in case there is some pressure left.
Remove the chicken to a large bowl and shred it, using two forks. Then add it back to the pot.
Stir to combine the salsa and chicken. Enjoy!
