Keyword chicken nachos
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 35 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes
Servings 2


  • 1-2 Green Onion(s)
  • 1-2 Roma Tomatos (or another of your choice)
  • 1 Package Shredded Cheese (I like Black Diamond's Nacho mix)
  • 2-3 Chicken Breasts (Either whole or pre-sliced)
  • 1 Package Taco Chips (Such as Tostitos)
  • 1 Package Chicken broth (or around 3 cups worth)
  • 1 tsp Poultry Seasoning (or your favorite spices)
  • 1 tbsp Sour Cream


  1. Add the chicken breasts, chicken broth and spices into the InstaPot. Secure the lid on and set manual pressure for 8 minutes. It will take the pot about 10 minutes to get up to pressure and begin counting down. Once the cook time has finished, allow the pressure to release naturally for at least 10 minutes before removing the lid

  2. You can either slice the chicken or pull it apart. You'll want bite-sized pieces.

  3. Preheat your oven to 400F.

  4. Line a cookie sheet or an oven safe glass pie plate with tacos.

  5. Slice up some green onions and tomatoes and sprinkle generously on your bed of tacos. Other things to add may include black beans or fresh peppers.

  6. Sprinkle the chicken pieces onto the tacos.

  7. Generously spread cheese over the top.

  8. Cook or broil in the oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cheese melts.

  9. Remove from oven and serve with a dollop of sour cream. If you aren't a fan of sour cream, consider serving with salsa or guacamole.
