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  Though Robin originally made it in the slow cooker, I love tossing this together in the pressure cooker and serving it with some rice.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 2 lb Chicken breast
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 2 T chili  lime seasoning (Trader Joe's)
DIRECTIONS:
  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
