    I made this the other night and had to come back to tell you just how wonderful this recipe is! My husband, who isn’t picky about dinner and also doesn’t really care much what is on the table just raved about this meal! (He has a colostomy right now so life is pretty boring menu-wise) He first told me he needed some sauce to put on the chicken and I told him to try it first. He did and said it was wonderful and he didn’t need anything more. Then he had some carrots and said they just exploded in his mouth with taste! Really? And, he has mentioned how much he liked it at least twice AND told me last night to please put that on the menu regularly. Now, THAT’S the kind of menu item to take to the bank! Thanks for the great website and recipe! If only I had six more, just as wonderful!!!!

      Janet this makes me so happy! It’s one thing for me to tell you all that my family loves a dish but it is another to hear it from someone else who has tried it! I am so happy you both loved it! I will get working on those other 6 ;-) Thanks for making my day!

    I soooo need to get me a pressure cooker! I just love that you can use frozen chicken, no more having to remember to get the chicken out of the freezer (which I always forget!). In the mean time, I will need to check out your slow cooker verison!

    Are you kidding me? It only takes 2 minutes longer to cook frozen chicken than fresh in an instant pot? See, THIS is what people need to tell me to convince me that I need one, lol! I’m all over the one pot meal idea and the idea of using italian dressing to speed things up, especially on nights when our schedule is just crazy. This sounds delicious!

  4. Beth Pine says

    Hi, Do you have any recipes for chicken cacciatore with pasta? I’d like to do it all in the instant pot. Thanks!

  5. Nicole says

    How long does it usually take to release the steam? This will be my first time using it. Trying to figure out when I should start my instant pot. Thanks!

    I am new to the IP world and this looks fantastic. I will try this weekend, I think. What size bottle of dressing do you use?

  7. Kimberly A Beaton says

    This was delicious! My bf who “thinks” he is quite the food critic……loved it❤. Will most definitely make this again! Thanks! I am a newbie to instant pot so was a bit scared to try it…….but I read your beginner notes etc. And said time to give it a whirl! So happy I did! Ty again.

  8. Chris says

    This may be a really stupid question, but do I need to put water in the pot or does the dressing take care of that? Thank you so much for your awesome posts and recipes – I’m getting ready to dive right in!

    Hi !

    This is the first recipe i am going to try in my new instapot! I’m still trying to figure out all the buttons… when you say cook frozen chicken for 10 minutes… that means press the pressure cook button, move the time down to 10 minutes and cook? Should the pressure level be on high pressure or low pressure?


    • Cheryl Spangenberg says

      Hi Geena! Welcome to the InstaPot world! Yes, exactly what you said! It will take a few minutes for the pot to come to pressure and then the 10 minutes will count down. High pressure also!

    Wow! This was amazing! This was my second meal made in my IP and so far I’m so impressed. I used Greek dressing and we served it with tzatziki. Yum. I have one question. The recipe instructions say to use NPR, which took about 20 minutes. I noticed another poster asked about pressure release time and you said about 20-30 seconds. So, would this work just as well doing a quick release? I’d love to save some time if possible. Thanks for your newbie instructions, and some great recipes!

    Hi this sounds yummy! I have everything to make this but a bottle of Italian dressing. I do however have a package of good seasons zesty Italian dressing mix and the ingredients to make it. Will that work? I’m going you see this soon as I wanted to make this tonight.

  12. Sue says

    For a throw in the pot and do basically nothing, this was very good! I only used 1/2 bottle of dressing because that was all I had. My family really liked it.

    5 stars
    Finding this just made my day. I’ve been making chicken in the crockpot this way for years. I haven’t been brave enough to try in the instant pot yet since I’m new to it but now I know what’s for dinner tonight.
