Instant Pot Salsa Chicken

Last week, I bought a couple packages of chicken breasts to make fajitas but we didn’t get around to making them.

We were headed out of town so I went ahead and put the chicken into the Instant Pot and made this Salsa Chicken recipe.

The Salsa Chicken took about an hour to cook start to finish and it turned out great.

I portioned out the shredded chicken into freezer bags then let them cool before sticking them in the freezer.

Shredded Salsa Chicken can be used in many different dishes – Chicken Enchiladas, Chicken Soft Tacos, Chicken Taquitos, or Mexican Chicken Casserole.

I wish I’d thought to take better photos of this chicken but it turned out very flavorful and moist.

It’s definitely a crowd-favorite around here.
