⭐️Set the instant pot to high pressure. Place the lid on and turn to sealing. Set for high pressure for 10 minutes. After the cooking time is up you can do a quick release and either serve the chicken breasts as is or shred them to serve on mashed potatoes, on a bun, or as they are.
Frozen Chicken: It is safe to cook frozen chicken breasts in the Instant pot. Adjust the cooking time to 15 minutes if using frozen chicken.
Type of Chicken: We use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, which can be swapped with boneless, skinless chicken thighs or chicken tenderloins if desired.
Serving Ideas: Serving over a bed of rice, gluten-free noodles, or roasted vegetable medley are more ideas to get a try.
Homemade Gravy: Thicken the juices by making a cornstarch slurry in a separate bowl (1 TBSP juices + 1 TBSP cornstarch) then whisking into the instant pot to create a homemade gravy. This mixture can be used to drizzle over the top of the mashed potatoes or as a dipping sauce for the sandwiches.
