Shredded Salsa Chicken

February 9, 2018

Another meal under 30 minutes and this time in my beloved Instant Pot! This recipe could not be easier. With just a few ingredients, it will be ready in no time!  I love to meal prep with this recipe just because I am able to make so much of it and use it in different ways!

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 25 mins
  • Yields: 7-8 servings


1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts (~2 breasts)

1 tsp coconut oil

1/2 cup diced onions

3 cloves of garlic (minced)

1 cup salsa (fresh if available)

8 oz. frozen corn

1 can drained and rinsed black beans

1 tsp salt & pepper to taste


1Turn on you instant pot to the saute feature. Once pot is hot, add the oil, onion, and garlic. Saute for a few minutes or until onions are translucent.

2Add in the rest of your ingredients (chicken, salt, pepper, salsa, corn, and beans) and mix together.

3Close the lid and vent on your instant pot. Turn the settings to Manual and set timer to 10 minutes.

4Natural release the instant pot (once done leave the chicken in the pot for an additional 5 minutes or until the pin at the top of the pot has dropped). Take out the chicken breasts on a plate and shred with 2 forks.

5Place back in the instant pot and taste for salt and pepper. Enjoy in a burrito or on top of rice!
