Salsa Chicken and Risotto

Is there any chicken quite like Instant Pot chicken? I don’t think so! In fact, I’ve decided I will NEVER make chicken any other way! This Salsa Chicken and Risotto Recipe begins with skinless, boneless chicken going in your Instant Pot.

Salsa Chicken and Risotto - This Little Home of Mine

I usually use a bag of frozen chicken tenderloins (3-5 lbs.) and cook them on high pressure for 30-40 minutes. When the Instant Pot is finished doing it’s thing, the result is always the same: the juiciest, most tender, most perfectly fall-apart chicken ever.

I use tongs to toss the tenderloins with a jar of of our favorite salsa, and as I do this, the chicken literally falls apart in shreds – yes, every time.

We like to toss this mixture atop rice our risotto (I usually prep this while my Instant Pot is working on the chicken – or you could do it in the Insta, too – depending on how you like to do things.), and then we usually add toppings: shredded cheese, Hidden Valley’s Chili Lime Salad Dressing, green onions, etc. Psst…Crushed tortilla chips are yummy on top of this, too! Anything goes~
