Instant Pot Salsa Chicken

Instant Pot Salsa Chicken

This Instant Pot Salsa Chicken is a quick and easy meal that can be thrown together any night of the week, and the whole family will love it!

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 Tablespoon taco seasoning
  • 15 ounce jar tomato salsa (I used Herdez, but Pace is also good)
  • 1/16 teaspoon cayenne pepper (use less or more based on level of desired heat)
  • 1/2 lime (the juice of, about 1 Tablespoon)
  • 1/2 cup chopped, fresh cilantro
  1. Pour half of the salsa into the liner/pan to your pressure cooker.
  2. Sprinkle the taco seasoning over both sides of the chicken breasts. Place the seasoned chicken breasts in the pressure cooker and add the remaining salsa.
  3. Secure lid, make sure the “knob” is in the “Sealing” position, select “Manual” and set timer for 25 minutes using the + and – buttons.
  4. When the Instant Pot beeps, allow the pressure to naturally release for 15 minutes before opening. If the pressure has not dropped completely, turn the pressure release valve to release the remaining steam. Mine only took 12 to release the pressure.
  5. Shred the chicken with two forks.
  6.  Return the chicken back into the liner and add the cilantro, lime juice, and cayenne {if using}. Stir to combine and serve over rice, salad, or use as a taco/burrito filling.
