Why Use an Instant Pot?

If you’re not familiar with the Instant Pot, it’s a versatile kitchen gadget that can replace many other appliances in your kitchen, such as a slow cooker, rice cooker, and pressure cooker. The Instant Pot cooks food quickly and evenly, and it’s easy to use and clean.

Using an Instant Pot to cook chicken breasts is a game changer. Not only does it take less time to cook, but the resulting chicken is moist, tender, and full of flavor. Plus, because the Instant Pot is a sealed cooking environment, the chicken stays juicy and doesn’t dry out like it can in the oven or on the stove.

Tips for Perfectly Cooked Chicken Breasts

  • Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the best results.
  • Season the chicken breasts generously with spices for maximum flavor.
  • Use chicken broth instead of water to infuse even more flavor into the chicken.
  • Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes before doing a quick release to prevent the chicken from becoming tough.
  • Let the chicken breasts rest for a few minutes before slicing to allow the juices to redistribute and keep the meat moist.

Serving Suggestions

Instant Pot chicken breasts are incredibly versatile and can be served in a variety of ways. Here are a few of our favorite serving suggestions:
