    If I’m using 3 lbs of chicken do I need to add another can of soup and additional water?

      I haven’t tried this with double the chicken, but if I did, I would double the rest of ingredients just to make sure you have enough yumminess to go around. If you give it a try, let me know how it turns out.

  2. Instant Pot Melt-In-Your-Mouth Chicken - Recipes That Crock! (13)Mary says

    Used cream of mushroom soup (was what was in my pantry) with chicken broth instead of water, packet of chicken bouillon and added pepper and thyme. My chicken was a bit overcooked. Think I will layer the liquid and meat and cut the pieces in half next time to help pieces not stick together during cooking. Added chicken base at end to get a deeper chicken flavor. Served with stuffing cooked in the oven. New to instapot so not bad for first try.

    Tastes like it looks. My hubby said it reminded him of his mother’s cooking.

    How long do you have to cook it using frozen chicken?

      Hi Kelli!

      I haven’t tried this recipe with frozen chicken. The timing would depend on what kind of chicken you are using. Do you plan on using tender, breasts or thighs?

    I just tried this last night and my husband and I loved it. I used chicken broth instead of water. The chicken was very moist and tender with good flavor! Thank you for the recipe!

    The one person asked if she could use milk instead of water (Emily, Jan. 9th, 2019), but every IP recipe I’ve ever seen states that milk, as well as all other liquid or semi-liquid dairy (sour cream, for instance) will curdle if it’s cooked under pressure, so it should be added at the end of the cooking time, after the pressure has been released.

    I’m going to use chicken broth instead of water, but liking to season my food quite a bit, will also add such things as ground sage and bay leaves, just to get those good tastes in there..

      Hi Joyce!

      Thanks for the advice about dairy in the Instant Pot! One thing we love around here is being a community that helps each other out and lifts each other up! Thank you for being a part of that!

      I love your ideas for extra seasonings! Another thing we love is hearing how our readers take our recipes and make them their own! Let me know what you think once you have made it!

    tasteless, dry, almost inedible. There is not enough fat in this recipe for it to be melt in your mouth, and I should have known better than to put the chicken in unseasoned. Too much water in the “sauce” I tried to thicken it, but that didn’t help the flavorlessness.

      Hi Leanne!

      We hate to hear this recipe didn’t work out for you. I’m kind of stumped at what could have went wrong for you. This recipe is one of my favorites. Unfortunately, not every recipe can be everyone’s cup of tea. Hope you can find something else on the site to enjoy.

    Tasteless rubber chicken. Certainly no melt-in-your-mouth!!

      Hi Chuck!

      If your chicken was rubbery, it sounds like your electric pressure cooker needed more time than mine to cook your chicken. I’m sorry you didn’t like this recipe as much as mine and Cris’ families did. I hope you find another recipe that is your cup of tea.

    Would the time be different in an 8 qt?

      Hi Meghan!

      I haven’t made this recipe in an 8 qt instant pot yet. The timing should be similar, but it will most likely take longer to come to pressure. Enjoy!

    Could you substitute the water for milk to keep a creamier consistency?

    Have you tried the melt in your mouth pork chops in the instant pot? If so, what is the cook time?

    Thanks!

      Hi Evony!

      I haven’t tried making the pork chop version of this recipe YET. I plan on trying it out very soon, so keep an eye out! I don’t want to make a recommendation without trying it first. It sometimes takes me 2-3 times trying out a recipe to get it right.

    Do any adjustments need to be made when using an 8qt IP for the same volume of food? Thanks!

      Hi Paige!

      I haven’t tried this recipe in an 8 qt yet. The cooking time should stay the same, but it will most likely take more time to come to pressure.

      Enjoy!

      You absolutely can! You just may want to add a few minutes to your cooking time.

      The recipe cooks under high pressure.

    Is this a quick release or natural pressure release?
