Instant Pot Salsa Chicken

Instant Pot Salsa Chicken is the one (Instant) Pot recipe you want on busy days. Requiring only 4 ingredients, prep literally takes 2 minutes! The Instant Pot takes care of the rest.

– skinless chicken, fresh or frozen – salsa  – cooking liquid (broth, stock, or water) – taco seasoning

Place chicken (fresh or frozen!) in the Instant Pot. Sprinkle chicken with taco seasoning (obviously, this works for thawed chicken, not so much for frozen).

Pour salsa and cooking liquid on top of the chicken. Close and lock the lid. Select either the  Pressure Cook setting; set timer for 15 minutes on Normal for thawed chicken, 20 for frozen.

After the cooking time is up, let natural release for 15-20 minutes (if possible). Once the pressure is released, remove the lid and transfer the chicken to a bowl with a pair of tongs.

Shred chicken with two forks. You can either set aside the chicken or add it back into the Instant Pot after the next step.

Press the Sauté button to reduce the leftover liquid. Set to Sauté for 7-10 minutes. Stir occasionally once the liquid starts to simmer. I like to spoon the reduced liquid over the chicken before serving.

Use Salsa Chicken for tacos, burritos, rice bowls, or cheesy sandwiches!
