Instant pot is an outstanding way to cook the chicken breasts that have been sitting in your freezer with no destination. And the bonus is you can cook them from frozen, no need to thaw out. Once the chicken breasts are cooked in a breezy time they are ready to be used in any of your favorite recipes. I use my chicken breasts cooked in an instant pot to make easy chicken salads, quesadillas and tacos. I also add them to soups, green salads, lasagnas and pastas.
They are protein-rich, filling and nutritious, very low calorie and low carb, there is no oil involved. It is supper easy to make them in an instant pot and chicken breasts come out succulent and delicious. Just add water, juice or chicken stock, seasonings, your best-loved fresh or dried herbs, salt and pepper and just under 25 minutes you are guaranteed to have perfectly cooked, flavorful chicken breasts. It doesn’t get any more convenient than that.
Once you master cooking in an instant pot you may never go back! I love how quick instant pot cooks the chicken especially when you are in a rush.
This method is labour-saving and quick I rarely cook my chicken breasts any other way. It is absolutely foolproof. Chicken comes out moist and tender, never overcooked or weird textured, like when you cook them in a crock pot for a long time. This instant pot cooked chicken breasts have been life savers so many times during busy week nights. And the best part you don’t need to defrost them at all. They go into the instant pot straight from the freezer.
And you can enliven the flavors of the chicken with so many sauces, spices and seasoning combinations. Chicken meat is mildly and delicately flavored and pairs beautifully with so many different tastes, fragrances and aromas. Sky is the limit!
