With every Instant Pot recipe, I contemplate how I can save time in comparison to cooking the dish using a traditional method. Baked potatoes usually take 45 minutes to an hour in the oven.
I usually wrap them in foil and constantly poke, poke, poke, and pray the potatoes finally soften up. Baked potatoes can be made in the Instant Pot in less than 10 minutes.
The story is similar for the shredded chicken in this recipe. I used to cook my breasts in a slow-cooker for a few hours on high. It should come as no surprise, I have not used my slow-cooker since I purchased the Instant Pot! Maybe I will during the winter months. The Instant Pot has a slow-cooker feature, which is great.

Look at all of that cheesy goodness! I usually save the mozzarella for the topping in a lot of recipes so that I obtain these results.

I chose to saute the chicken breasts first for a couple of minutes on each side using the Instant Pot. I did this because I wanted to pressure cook the potatoes and chicken breasts at the same time. With this method, the chicken breasts are not going into the pot raw with the potatoes.

I am a HUGE fan of Trader Joe’s uncured, nitrate-free bacon. I love the taste and texture. Nitrates are preservatives. Going with a nitrate-free alternative means that it will go bad a lot faster. So you should be sure you have plans for the bacon when you purchase it.

This is the perfect combination dinner for myself and my husband, as I need to be gluten free but this recipe has all the flavors for him to not notice that there isn't gluten in it. So delicious, will definitely be making this again! Thank you for a wonderful recipe :)
