Everyone knows by now how much I love the instant pot.

 

I really enjoy using the instant pot to help me stay on track at lunch time!

An easy way to make sure I get my protein in the middle of the day is by cooking chicken.

cooking in the Instant pot means you don’t have to thaw it!!!!!!

So, usually I just throw one frozen boneless chicken breast or boneless thigh in the pot and season it however I’m feeling that day.

 

My current Favorite seasonings are:

Cumin, chili powder, onion powder, and cyan pepper – if I want to make a something like a taco salad or just a little black beans.

Garlic, salt, pepper is my go to when I just want to have some veggies or a salad.

Celery Salt, olive oil and pepper is yummy too!

Really the options are endless

 

Cooking this in the instant pot couldn’t be easier!

Just grab some chicken out of the freezer and throw it in! I like to use the metal trivet that came with my pot. To me, it seems like the chicken is a better texture when it isn’t sitting in the water/juices. Also with just a little bit of chicken like this, I find it doesn’t need that much liquid to pressure cook. Chicken produces quite a bit of it’s of its own juices (yum chicken broth) and less water makes it come to pressure faster!! So I only put about 1/2 a cup into the bottom of the pot.

 

I set the pot for 15 minutes (high pressure) and make sure it is set to seal. And that’s all I have to do!!!!

Usually I set this and then start the boys lunches! By the time I’ve got them sitting and eating, my lunch is done and I get to eat too!!! yay!

 

 

Last week I had sweet potatoes! So, I seasoned my chicken as usual and threw the sweet potato in the pot along with it. I set it to the usual 15 minutes and it was seriously perfect!!!

 

Happy Instant Pot-ing to you all!

Instructions
  1. Place 1/2 cup of water in the bottom of the Instant pot. Place Trivet in the instant pot.
  2. Add chicken straight from the freezer. Set lid and check the valve is on seal. Set Instant pot to 15 minutes (high pressure) If you are doing more than one piece of chicken at a time or maybe a particularly big piece of chicken I would set it to 20 minutes.
  3. optional: You can toss a sweet potato in at the same time! Just pierce it a couple times with a fork and throw it on the trivet next to the chicken before starting it!
