How to Cook Chicken:

Don’t have time to cook the chicken, use shredded store-bought rotisserie chicken, too.  Or, buy shredded/diced prepared chicken.

Instant Pot

  • Put 1 cup of chicken broth into the Instant Pot pan
  • Place a trivet or basket into the pot
  • Add three frozen chicken breasts to the Instant Pot pan
  • Season the chicken with your favorite chicken seasonings and salt and pepper
  • Place the lid on and lock it into place
  • Close the vent
  • Pressure cook on high for 12 minutes
  • Natural release for 5 minutes and then do a quick release
  • Shred or dice your chicken

If using fresh chicken breasts, reduce the pressure-time to 10 minutes.

 

Poached

  • Place three or four fresh chicken breasts in a large saucepan.  Do not overlap.
  • Season with salt and pepper and your favorite chicken seasonings
  • Add water to 1″ above the chicken
  • Bring water to a boil.  Reduce the temperature so that the chicken will simmer.
