There are a few go-to dishes to start with when you first buy your new Instant Pot 3 Quart. Having a quick list of Instant Pot Mini Chicken recipes that fit a 3 quart without having to adjust makes everything even easier. Most recipes are written for it’s 6 quart big sister. While I picked up my Instant Pot after Christmas, I didn’t try chicken initially, mostly because I got sidetracked with life. To help give you a few ideas, here is my list of chicken recipes for the Instant Pot Mini that I have both tried as well as plan to try.
Instant Pot Mini Chicken Recipes and Ideas
Simple Chicken Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts. These are great for meal-prep that you can pair with your favorite veggies or shred for chicken salad. Simple chicken breasts are can also be cooked from frozen. Tip: I had a package of 2 HUGE chicken breasts in the freezer so I let them slightly thaw in a water bath until I was sure they would separate.
BBQ Chicken Wings. This is another simple one. I’ve made these a few times. I started with about a pound of chicken wings (either fresh or somewhat thawed), 1 cup of water, and cooked on high pressure for 10 minutes. Toss with your favorite BBQ sauce and broil for a few minutes to crisp up. Toss with a little more sauce and optionally garnish with chopped green onions. An easy and fast idea to add to my Instant Pot Mini chicken recipes list.
Jambalaya. I started one version but I didn’t have the time completely correct. The rice didn’t turn out the way I wanted. Given potential shellfish allergies I’m keeping to a chicken and sausage version only!
General Tso’s Chicken. For some reason I missed taking photos and writing down how I made this , but I’m sure I’m not imagining it. It came out really tasty at the time. I guess it’s time to make it again!
Balsamic Bruschetta Chicken. This was one of my quick go-to recipes for freezer cooking when I was using my slow cooker more often. It’s mostly a simple chop and drop recipe. Who doesn’t love that?
