How to make Green Chili Chicken
Green Chili Chicken
- Place the chicken breast, chicken stock, cream cheese, garlic, cumin, black pepper, salt, and green chilies into the pot of your Instant Pot.
- Place the lid on with the seal shut. Turn it on manual pressure for 12 minutes. Let the steam naturally escape for 12 minutes.
- Remove the chicken from the pot and turn the Instant pot to sauté high for ten minutes, stirring occasionally. While the sauce is coming to a boil shred your chicken.
- Once the sauce has reduced in half add the shredded chicken back into your pot and combine.
- Serve over your favorite vegetables or over rice.
