Ingredients

  • 16 oz skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 slices uncured, nitrate-free bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 6 red potatoes medium sized and cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 1/2 cup plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 cup reduced fat cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/2 cup part-skim mozzarella cheese shredded
  • 2 tbsp green onions chopped
  • 1 tsp chives
  • 3/4 packet ranch seasoning I used Hidden Valley
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • McCormick's Grill Mates Chicken Seasoning to taste
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Add the olive oil to the pot. You can also use cooking spray. Turn the Instant Pot on the saute function.
  • Season the chicken breasts with the chicken seasoning.
  • Saute the chicken for 2 minutes on each side until the chicken turns white.
  • Add the potato chunks and chicken broth to the Instant Pot with the chicken breasts.
  • Put the lid on the pot and adjust the settings to the Manual 10 minutes. 
  • When the pot beeps allow the Instant Pot to release steam on its own without quick release for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the chicken from the pot. Using two knives or a knife and fork, shred the chicken. Set aside. Drain the excess liquid from the pot.
  • Mash the potatoes with a hand mixer or a potato masher inside the pot.
  • Add the remaining ingredients and the chicken to the pot, except for the cheeses. Only add 1/2 cup of shredded cheese here. Season with paprika, chives, ranch seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. Stir to combine all of the ingredients. 
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Spray a baking pan with cooking spray. Add the mixture to the baking pan.
  • Top with the remaining cheese. 
  • Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese has melted. 
  • Cool before serving.
