Electric Pressure Cooker Chicken

If you like spicy food you will love these spicy electric pressure cooker chicken sliders. I use this pot almost daily and always looking for new and easy Instant Pot recipes for my family! (originally published 11/18, affiliate links present)

I like quick and easy pressure cooker and Ninja foodi recipes with 5 or few ingredients AND done in under 30 minutes.

This one was really yummy with just 3 main things.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

Super Bowl Appetizer

I made these using frozen chicken in the Instant Pot which made it super simple since I didn’t even have to go to the store and I used what was already in the freezer.

If you’d rather use fresh chicken breasts like I did when making these Instant Pot shredded chicken sliders you can do that too, but using frozen to begin with is really handy.

This is what it looks like when it’s done! The bonus to this is when serving as an appetizer or at a party is that you can leave it in the spicy sauce to sit and it lasts quite a while.

Leftovers the next day are even really yummy. With a side of rolls or our favorites are these cute little Hawaiian sweet rolls and topped with creamy cole slaw they’re always a hit.

You are free to make homemade cole slaw or throw together this easy cole slaw recipe to top your sliders.

Instant Pot chicken

  1. Chicken breasts (frozen or fresh – about 4 – 5 med. size)
  2. Franks Red Hot sauce
    1. Or a bottle of barbecue sauce if you’d rather use that + 3/4 c. water
  3. Ranch dressing mix
  4. Hawaiian rolls
  5. Cole slaw
  6. Instant Pot (I have this one)

Salt and pepper to taste when done if you want.

These aren’t for the faint of heart, they are spicy. I am not a huge spice fan but I loved these. I’d compare them to a med/hot level of buffalo sauce but the cole slaw cools them down.

  • Cole slaw not only adds some crunch and texture, and color, to these electric pressure cooker chicken sliders but it provides some cooling for the heat of the sauce.

They’re really tasty.

Steps to follow for this easy pressure cooker recipe:

  1. Put frozen chicken breasts into your pot with water or chicken broth.
  2. Set to high pressure for 12 minutes then allow 3 minutes to release steam naturally = 15 minutes cook time total.
  3. Then do a quick release and you should have tender cooked chicken ready to shred.
  4. Mix together other ingredients and pour in, stir so cooked chicken breast pieces are coated well.
  5. Cook on high for 2 more minutes, do not release naturally at this time, quick release is fine.
  6. Stir and serve as you desire. It’s a great weeknight meal or app.

How long should the chicken breasts cook if they’re not frozen?

I cook whole chicken breasts that aren't frozen on the poultry, normal setting for 15 minutes.
