  • 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.
