Instant Pot Frozen Chicken

Frozen chicken is something you should always have at home: it can literally save your dinner when you’re in a hurry and it can be cooked in many ways!

If you also have an Instant Pot (or any other pressure cooker), then your weeknight meal is completely safe! There’s no need to thaw your chicken, just start cooking it and enjoy some spare time!

For this recipe I’m using chicken breasts. So if you are looking for a whole chicken recipe, check out this recipe or this one.
