How To Make Instant Pot White Chicken Chili

This Paleo white chicken chili is so easy to make in the Instant Pot! No sautéing beforehand!

  1. Add the chicken breast to the instant pot first, then add the remaining ingredients.
  2. Stir all the ingredients together. Lock the lid on, and cook on “manual” high pressure for 20 minutes.
  3. Let the instant pot naturally release for 10 minutes, then turn the knob to “venting”. Remove the chicken breast to a plate and shred using two forks. Add the chicken back to the instant pot and stir. Serve and garnish with all your favorite toppings!

Recipe Tips and Variations

  • For a thicker/creamier chili use 1/2 the amount of chicken broth.
  • If you already have cooked shredded chicken that you would like to use, make the chili in the instant pot on manual for 10 minutes, instead of 20 minutes. Stir the chicken in and heat through.
  • Use boneless chicken thighs instead of breasts. I prefer to use pasture-raised organic chicken breasts and thighs.
  • Substitute diced green chiles for any green salsa.
  • Instead of sweet potatoes, you can use gold potatoes, or russet potatoes. You can also keep it dairy free, but add legumes with white beans (Great Northern Beans).
