Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 20 minutes
Total: 30 minutes



  • 1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Optional toppings: shredded cheese, diced tomatoes, chopped cilantro


  1. Season the chicken breasts with cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.

  2. Set the Instant Pot to “Sauté” mode and heat the olive oil. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and sear for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned.

  3. Pour in the salsa and stir well to coat the chicken.

  4. Close the lid of the Instant Pot and set the valve to “Sealing” position. Cook on “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” mode for 10 minutes.

  5. Once the cooking time is up, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release pressure for 5 minutes, then manually release any remaining pressure.

  6. Use two forks to shred the chicken directly in the Instant Pot. Stir to mix the shredded chicken with the salsa sauce.

  7. Serve the Instant Pot Salsa Chicken hot with your choice of toppings.
