One of the quickest (and simplest) methods to prepare chicken is in an instant pot!

Dinner is ready with just a few straightforward Instant Pot Chicken Tacos(and fresh or frozen chicken) in your electric pressure cooker.

In the time it takes to produce excellent chicken breasts in the Instant Pot, you can hardly make all of the toppings!

I adore my Instant Pot, and if you don’t have one, you should. You’re going to adore this if you’re wondering what the Instant Pot is.

The “scariness” of pressure cooking is completely eliminated by this simple-to-use (and extremely safe) pressure cooker. (See them here on Amazon.)

I adore being able to take frozen chicken breasts, throw them in the Instant Pot, and have a meal ready in a matter of minutes. It’s not just nutritious, but also incredibly tasty and tender.

If you frequently use a crock pot, you are aware that frozen meat must first be thawed and that the dish typically requires many hours to cook (like my Crockpot Chicken Tacos).

When I’m gone all day and want to come home to a supper that’s ready to go, cooking chicken in the slow cooker is ideal, but the Instant Pot quickly thaws food from frozen.

I mean, I TRY to plan my meals, but occasionally it’s 5 o’clock and I haven’t even considered what to eat (please tell me I’m not the only one)!

This dish calls for cooking both fresh and frozen chicken for 12 and 16 minutes, respectively. Do you now understand why I want to refer to it as the Miracle Pot?

There are only 4 components needed to get started. There are only four ingredients: chicken breast, salsa, chicken broth, and taco seasoning (I like to make my own). When the chicken is finished cooking, you just shred it, and your meal is done!

Ideal taco salad

Hard shells and traditional taco ingredients are ideal, but I also enjoy using soft tortillas or even serving this over a bed of lettuce for the ideal taco salad!

A large tray of toppings, including sour cream, homemade salsa, lettuce, tomatoes, and guacamole, was laid out. pretty much anything you desire! Play around a little to see what you can make with your toppings!

This recipe is one that I enjoy cooking since not only is it quick and easy, but it also pleases everyone in my family. Who doesn’t adore tacos, really?

This makes the ideal taco bar if you’re feeding a crowd. Additionally, by setting the Instant Pot to warm, your visitors can help themselves whenever they choose.

While the chicken is cooking, throw together a quick salad, and you’ll have a full meal in no time!

This dish reheats and freezes beautifully! If there are any leftovers, they can be stored in freezer bags and heated in the microwave for a quick meal. For last-minute visitors, we’ve also made a nacho platter with delicious chicken!

You’ll use your pressure cooker for Instant Pot Chicken any day of the week because it’s so simple to prepare and one of the most adaptable recipes I’ve ever seen.
