  1. I tried to sign up for the regular recipes but site wouldn’t allow me to complete my email address
    Thanks for delicious chicken Recipe, but I need low sodium — how could I modify this?

  2. Hi there! This sounds very easy and I know my family will eat it. If I have frozen chicken breasts, would I still set the pressure cooker to 25 minutes? I have had an Instant Pot for almost 3 years and I rarely use it. I always only have frozen meat-chicken especially.

  3. Are the chicken breasts frozen with the 25 minute cooking time? If cooked breasts, how long would you cook meal for? Thanks for what looks like a future “go-to” meal for my family.

  4. I want to make this using leftover chicken. Would you still pressure cook for 25mins?

  5. What a wonderful recipe! It was hearty and delicious! I left out the meat and added some sage to it and the chives added to the onion. A five star for this recipe that my entire family loves and is clammering for more! Thank you!

  6. Can the chicken be partly frozen cut into pieces, be place in at the same time as the potatoes , carrot ( baby prepeeled ) instead of cube carrots.Would it be the same time.First time using IP

  7. Yes, you can put them in at the same time and I would I would use the same cooking time.
