Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock

  2. Add the chicken breasts into the liquid.

  3. Place lid on the pressure cooker and lock. Make sure the pressure valve is set to keep steam inside. 

  4. For fresh chicken breasts: Use poultry setting and cook on high pressure for about 10 minutes. When instant pot has finished, use a fork or utensil to do a quick release.

  5. For frozen chicken breasts: Use poultry setting and cook on high pressure for about 15 minutes. When instant pot has finished, use a fork or utensil to do a quick release. Make sure your frozen breasts are separated, not in one big ball of ice or it will take longer to come to pressure and longer to cook.
