At this point, I’ve had my Instant Pot for a year + a few months, and I am still SO OBSESSED. It is one HUNDO P my favorite kitchen item, and I get excited when I think of ways to use it.
I really can’t say enough about this beautiful pot of magic, but if you are on the fence about getting one, you should – for sure, for sure, for sure. I’m in love. And this green chili chicken is the perfect example why! All we do for this recipe is throw some chicken breasts into the Instant Pot with a jar of salsa verde and a can of green chilis. That’s actually it, no joke.
And after that essentially zero effort prep and short cook time, you have soft, moist, juicy, flavor PACKED shredded chicken that is looking up at you from the Instant Pot and begging to be loaded shamelessly into a taco. How can you deny that beautiful chicken goodness?
The depth of flavor here that comes from only THREE ingredients is just straight up cray cray. It’s because everything is pressure cooked together, essentially giving it the flavor and moisture of chicken that was slow simmered for hours.
The flavors of the cooking chicken release into the sauce that is made from the salsa verde and green chilis, and the sauce cooks into the chicken, giving everything so much flavor.
And then when we pull the chicken out and shred it, we throw it right back into the sauce where it stays until you want to use it, whether that be right away, later that day for dinner, or later in the week for a meal. This is a fantastic make ahead meal.…
