Instant Pot Salsa Chicken Recipe (Whole30 & Paleo)

Instant Pot salsa chicken is literally the easiest way to make a healthy dinner. I love to eat mine in a taco salad with veggies and avocado. What is fun about this recipe is you can switch up the type of salsa you use and change the flavor of the chicken. The pressure cooker makes the chicken so juicy and really easy to shred.

Make sure to watch the ingredients when picking what salsa brand you use or you can use a homemade salsa! Some brands that are easy to find at the stores are Herdez Salsa Casera Medium, Herdez Salsa Verde Mild, Trader Joe’s Salsa Verde, Muir Glen Organic Salsa and 365 by Whole Foods Market. There are many more out there that are delicious. I also like to use the Primal Palate Taco Seasoning with this recipe.

This also is a great leftover so make sure to double the recipe if you want extras. It is also is a great meal prep option to make for the whole week. Leave a review below when you try out this recipe!
