How to cook fresh and frozen chicken in the Instant Pot
1 pound, medium boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 cup chicken stock
- Place chicken and stock inside the Instant Pot.
- Lock and seal the lid.
- Using the manual function, cook for 7 minutes at high pressure and then quick release the pressure. (Check to make sure the chicken is done, which means no more pink inside and/or registers 165°F internally.)
Freeze For Later: Place chicken and stock into gallon-sized freezer bag or round container. (Make sure to not stack the chicken.) Seal and freeze. Tip: Set the freezer bag in a bowl in the freezer for a few hours to help it freeze in the shape of the Instant Pot.
Prepare From Frozen: Turn on the Saute function. Saute the frozen chicken for 5 minutes to release some liquid. Press Cancel. Using the manual setting, cook for 15-20 minutes at high pressure with a quick release.
