Instructions to make instant pot chicken.
Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Pour a cup of water or chicken stock in the insert pot insert.
Place the seasoned chicken on a trivet and carefully lower the trivet in the instant pot insert. The liquid should not touch the chicken.
Attach the lid, ensuring the pressure valve is in the “Sealing” position.
Select the “Pressure Cook” mode. Adjust the ‘Pressure Level’ to “high” and adjust the time to 10 minutes using the “- / +” button.
When Instant Pot beeps, let the pressure release the naturally for 10 minutes. Then, using a thick tea towel, turn the pressure valve to “Venting” position to perform a quick release.
Carefully remove the trivet.
Chop, dice, slice or shred the chicken and use in your favorite recipe.
You can use chicken thighs instead of the breasts. The cooking time remains the same.
Do not discard the liquid remaining in the instant post. The liquid is packed with flavor. Use it to flavor your favorite soup or stew.
How do you freeze cooked chicken?
Once you have your chicken cooked, you can either choose to freeze it like it is, or shred it and freeze it instead. Simply purchase some freezer-proof bags or containers, add a label and annotate the date and ingredient (i.e. 9/15/19 Chicken). Place the bag or container in the freezer to use later. When it comes time to use, simply unthaw on a low setting in the Instant Pot or a few seconds in the microwave and eat. If you like to keep frozen cooked chicken in the freezer, make sure to move the older chicken to the front.
