Instant Pot Crack Chicken Recipe
- 1-1/2 to 2 lbs chicken breasts
- 1 cup water
- 8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
- 8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
- 1-2 tablespoons hot sauce
- 8 burger buns
- salt & pepper
Place chicken breasts into Instant Pot and add 1 cup water. Close the lid of the instant pot, close the pressure release valve and set the instant pot on Manual, High Pressure, for 9 minutes.
Once cooking is complete, let set for 3 minutes and quickly release pressure.
Remove chicken from pan with tongs and discard the juices. Return chicken back to pan, one at a time, and shred with two forks.
Place cream cheese, shredded cheese and hot sauce into the pan and mix well.
For the purposes of photos, I have removed the instant pot pan from the actual appliance. Normally, I’d just leave the insert in the appliance and shred chicken and add remaining ingredients. This will keep the pan warm and help melt the cheese.
If the pan cools and you are having a hard time mixing the cheeses, turn your instant pot on warm and let it heat up, but be careful not to burn the cheeses.
Season with salt and pepper.
Serve chicken on buns. Makes 6-8 sandwiches.
