  • Instant Pot recipes require liquid to reach pressure. For most chicken recipes I use chicken broth or better than chicken base broth and water.
  • All recipes are cooked under high pressure with a natural pressure release of 10 minutes unless otherwise directed (do not use a quick release or the chicken will get hard).
  • If the cooking time

  • does not differentiate between fresh
  • and frozen chicken, add 2 minutes to the cooking time when using frozen chicken.

  • Salt and pepper to taste and add additional spices, if desired.
