Salsa Chicken & Risotto

This Little Home of Mine
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 40 mins
Total Time 45 mins


  • Skinless Boneless Chicken
  • Salsa
  • Risotto or rice
  • Toppings:
  • Hidden Valley's Simply Ranch Chili Lime Dressing
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Green Onions
  • Crushed Tortilla Chips


  • 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), 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~
