Instant Pot White Chicken Chili

We are officially having Fall weather here in Idaho. For us that means cold and windy days in the 50’s then a beautiful sunny day in the mid 70’s. Even after living here 14 years I still never know what “season” to expect each day. Making sure we have super easy Instant Pot meals are so essential in the busy Fall evenings. Tonight I threw together Instant Pot White Chicken Chili in between¬†school pick up and dance class. Coming home to a warm pot of White Chicken Chili is the perfect ending to our busy fall day.¬†

For this recipe, I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Max, but my Instant Pot 6 Quart Duo would also work well for this recipe.

If your new to Instant Pot cooking check out my Instant Pot Beginners Guide to help you get started. If you like “dump” recipes you definitely need to try Quinoa Chicken Taco Bowls and Tex Mex Chicken Stew.

 

 Most chicken recipes I make in the Instant Pot can be adapted to use pre-cooked, thawed or frozen chicken. For this particular recipe, I used a whole bone-in chicken. You can follow the instructions on how to cook a whole chicken in the Instant Pot here.

Something to remember when you’re changing a recipe you find to use thawed or frozen meat is you’ll need to adapt the cooking time for the ingredient that needs the longest cook time. For example, this recipe calls for pre-cooked chicken so everything going in the Instant Pot is safe to eat but needs to warm through and blend all the flavors together like it’s been simmering all day. When using fresh or frozen chicken breasts the cooking time should be adjusted to ensure the chicken is fall apart tender when the cook cycle is complete.

The ingredients include some easy pantry staples, making this an extremely easy dinner to throw together on a busy night. If your chicken is pre-cooked and shredded you can add the white beans, green chilies, chicken broth, corn and spices and pressure cook for 8 minutes. If your using thin frozen chicken breasts increase your cook time to 12 minutes or thawed chicken breast set your cook time for 10 minutes.

This will take about 15-20 minutes to reach pressure and seal before the cook cycle starts. The pressure can be released quickly or left to naturally release.

Serve with fresh cilantro, mild cheddar or pepper jack cheese, avocado slices, sour cream or whatever your heart desires.
