Crack Chicken-Instant Pot Style


I finally am brave enough to make a real meal in the Instant Pot!  I’ve heard great things about Crack Chicken, so I modified it a bit for the Instant Pot.  It is GOOD and you only need a few ingredients.  Oh, and it takes about 45 minutes to make from start to the dinner table.  You really can’t beat that!

Crack Chicken-Instant Pot 

  • 2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 package ranch dressing
  • 1 package cream cheese
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded colby jack cheese (or cheddar)
  • 6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  1. Place the first three ingredients in the Instant Pot and top with the water
  2. Run Instant Pot on Manual mode for 25 minutes
  3. As soon it finishes, press the cancel button and do a quick release by sliding the steam release valve to “venting”.
  4. Wait for the steam release to complete and open the Instant Pot
  5. Remove the chicken and shred (I used my Kitchenaid Food Processor for this step)
  6. Add the shredded chicken back to the Instant Pot and mix in the cheese
  7. When ready to serve, mix in the bacon

We enjoyed this on ciabatta buns, but you could easily enjoy it as a dip during football season.  (GO Pack GO!)  My husband loved it on ritz crackers.
