This is my go-to method for cooking chicken breast in the Instant Pot® when I want plain but adequately cooked chicken. When you just have frozen chicken on hand and need something speedy, it's fantastic for meal preparation, quick and healthful meals, and the best part? There are just a few ingredients required for this!
Chicken breast, chicken broth, olive oil, Italian seasoning, ground paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and possibly cornstarch are the ingredients for Instant Pot chicken breast.
A few notes on the ingredients
Larger chicken breasts maintain their juiciness longer and have a superior texture. I suggest dividing 2 pounds of chicken into 4-6 chicken breasts.
Frozen poultry? You can cook frozen chicken without first defrosting it. While you prepare the other ingredients for the dish, take the chicken out of the freezer, unwrap it, and let it rest at room temperature. Spice the meat, but don't sear or brown it. Place the frozen chicken breast on the trivet in the instant pot with the stock and cook for 15 minutes. The remainder of the recipe is exactly as indicated.
Chicken broth: You may also use water if you're not utilizing the cooking juices for gravy.
Use whatever additional spice you choose, if you like.
