Before we had kids I worked full time out of the house, I remember working with a lady that made a creamy chicken chili. Unfortunately, I never got the recipe from her. I did some thinking about my Simple, Perfect Chili recipe and what went into it. After doing some exploring in my pantry and refrigerator I came up with these ingredients.
Water, Better Than Bouillon Chicken Flavor, Chicken Chili Seasoning Package, Green Enchilada Sauce, Corn, Great Northern Beans, Garlic, Onions, Jalapeno pepper or canned green chilies. Cream Cheese, Chicken Breast, Pepper, taco seasoning, and Ground Cumin.
How Do You Make An Easy Chicken Chili?
In your Instant Pot add water, Better Than Bouillon chicken flavor, and chicken chili seasoning packet. Whisk the ingredients together until you have the bouillon broke down and the seasoning all mixed well. Since the bouillon is paste-like it needs to be broken down or it will cause your IP to say burn.
Once those ingredients are mixed together add; green enchilada sauce, corn, beans, garlic, onion, your choice jalapeno pepper or canned green chilies, and cream cheese. When adding the cream cheese I break the brick of cream cheese up to help it melt down better.
For the chicken breast, I cut it up in cubes and season with black pepper, taco seasoning and ground cumin. Having the chicken cubbed and seasoned I add it to my inner pot along with the rest of the ingredients.
Place the lid on your Instant Pot press the high-pressure button and set time for 30 minutes. Once the 30 minutes are up, do a quick release of the steam. Remember that steam is hot and can cause a burn.
Some of the cream cheese may not be all the way melted, just use a whisk to help finish incorporating it. A nice slice of cornbread would go great with this creamy chicken chili.
Like many people, my Instant Pot has become one of my most used small appliances in my kitchen. I’m working on many more recipes that I will be sharing here on the blog so be sure to sign up for emails. You don’t want to miss out on some great recipes.
