The end of 2017 Instant Pot’s were the hottest kitchen item to have. Amazon sold out by morning on Cyber Monday. It was the present everyone couldn’t wait to open on Christmas. Now that you have one, what are you going to make??? Like everyone else I started with hard boiled eggs then moved on to rice and chicken. There were some recipes that were complete flops and some that were convenient  and delicious.

My Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Tacos are pretty regular in the dinner rotation. Now armed with an Instant Pot I decided to revamp that recipe for the Instant Pot and add some lime.

The Salsa

You can make your own salsa with this recipe.  Or you can use your favorite jarred salsa. Pictured above is with my salsa recipe.

Ways to Serve Instant Pot Salsa Lime Chicken

Do not shred the chicken breast. Carefully lift the chicken breasts out of the instant pot and place on a bed of yellow rice.

Shred and use on: Tacos, Burittos, Nachos, inside Quesadillas, Taco Salads, on Tostadas, inside Enchiladas.

The Limes

Limes come in a lot of sizes. If you have large ones. use one lime. If you have small limes, use two. Use the rest for Margaritas!
