Chili Lime Chicken (Pressure cooker)

I love my friend Robin for many reasons.  Her introducing me to Trader Joe's Chili Lime seasoning and this recipe is most definitely among them!  (The fact that she has a huge heart, is funny, kind and teaches a kick-a** yoga class doesn't hurt, either.)  This recipe has become a staple in my house, as she promised me it would be.  It is easy and versatile, and there isn't a member of my family who isn't happy to see it on the menu.  Though Robin originally made it in the slow cooker, I love tossing this together in the pressure cooker and serving it with some rice.

  • 2 lb Chicken breast
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 T chili  lime seasoning (Trader Joe's)
  1. Place chicken in instant pot and add all other ingredients on top of it, in the order listed.
  2. Set pressure level to high and timer to 6 minutes. Start.
  3. When the timer goes off, allow the pressure to naturally release for 5 minutes and then quick release.
  4. Shred chicken.  Serve over rice with toppings of your choice or as burrito or taco filling, or as the protein in a taco salad.  The options are limitless!
  5. Slow cooker instructions: add all ingredients to slow cooker, cook on low 6-8 hours.

Sometimes I add tomatoes and sour cream, too!
Difficulty: super easy
Time: 15-20 minutes
