    1. Surely, you can add ½-¾ cup of the cooked and chopped chicken immediately after opening the instant pot.

    1. In my opinion the recipe is salty and doesn’t need addition salt.
      But I got your comment so I added “salt to taste” to the recipe.

    1. Yes to both– you can definitely use white wine and chicken broth instead of veg broth. If you decide to use no wine at all, just replace it with an equal amount of broth to keep the total amount of liquid the same.
