Just put in a cup of water, throw in a few frozen chicken breasts, and set on “Manual” for 10 minutes. Voila! Perfectly cooked chicken that you can use as a whole breast or to shred for tacos or casseroles.
This is a favorite meal at our house – spaghetti and meatballs. One of the biggest things I hate about pasta dishes is the time you spend cooking the pasta, stirring over a hot stove, and then cleaning said stove because the pot always boils over. But spaghetti in an Instant Pot is simple!
Put a cup of water in the bottom and place eggs on the steamer rack. Cook at “Manual” for 5 minutes, then do a quick release and put eggs in cold water.
Wash, peel, and quarter 2.5 lbs of potatoes. Place 1 cup of water in the Instant Pot and place potatoes on the steamer rack. Cook on “Manual” for 8 minutes, then do a quick release. Place the potatoes in a medium bowl. Add 1/2 cup warmed milk and 2 Tbsp melted butter, then mash with a potato masher.
Clean and prick 2.5 lbs potatoes. Put 1 cup of water in the Instant Pot, and place potatoes on the steamer rack. Cook on “Manual” for 10-12 minutes, then allow a slow release (which means don’t turn the vent to release the pressure at the end).
