How to Cook Frozen Chicken in Instant Pot to Shred
Cooking frozen chicken in the Instant Pot is an amazing way to quickly transform dinner into a flavorful meal. By utilizing the Instant Pot to pressure-cook and shred the chicken, you can have a perfectly cooked meal that’s ready to serve in no time. This method is great for when you’re short on time or forgot to thaw the chicken overnight.
- Instant Pot
- 1lb of Frozen Chicken
- 1 cup of Water, Broth or Stock
- Seasonings, if desired
Step 1: Place Frozen Chicken in Instant Pot
Carefully place the frozen chicken in the Instant Pot. Make sure it is not too crowded, or it will not cook evenly. Add 1 cup of liquid (water, broth or stock) to the Instant Pot.
Step 2: Cook on High Pressure
Close and secure the lid of the Instant Pot. Make sure the pressure knob is set to “sealing”. Select the “manual” or “pressure cook” setting on your Instant Pot and set the time to 15 minutes. Once the timer is done, wait for a natural release of pressure for 10 minutes.
Step 3: Shred Chicken
After the pressure has been released, open the lid of the Instant Pot and carefully remove the chicken. Use a fork to pull apart the chicken into shreds. You can season the chicken at this stage, if desired.
Step 4: Serve and Enjoy!
Your totally cooked and shredded chicken is now ready to be served. Enjoy with your favorite sides!
Cooking frozen chicken in the Instant Pot is a great way to have a tasty dinner in no time. You can also freeze any leftovers and have an easy meal option ready for later. Enjoy your perfectly cooked and delicious Instant Pot chicken!
