Cooking chicken for the week using an Instant Pot or other electric pressure cooker

Today I’m featuring a pressure cooker recipe from Created by Diane. Diane has been pressure cooking for over 14 years and loves her 6 quart stove top Presto Pressure Cooker. Diane recently posted Cooking Chicken for the Week in 22 minutes with her time saving tips for making quick dinners.

Cooking Chicken for the Week in an Instant Pot

Diane cooks 6 lbs. of chicken breasts in her pressure cooker for 12 minutes (it takes 10 minutes for her pressure cooker to come up to pressure.) When the chicken has finished cooking, she tosses it into her Kitchen Aid mixer, turns it on high for about 30 seconds, and it’s shredded and ready to use in meals throughout the week.

In addition to complete directions on pressure cooking chicken breasts and shredding it in your mixer, in her post Diane has links to lots of wonderful quick recipes to use your shredded chicken in throughout the week.

You can use cooked shredded chicken in recipes such as burritos, tacos, soups, and casseroles.

Thanks Diane for sharing you great time saving ideas!
