Pressure Cooker Chicken Breasts

Packing school lunches was a new challenge last year when Leo began Kindergarten. I settled into a routine of packing a simple bento box lunch of one protein, one veggie, one fruit, and one cheese. These chicken breasts are easy to prepare in the pressure cooker while you’re making dinner the night before, and they always come out perfectly. Half of one chicken breast, cubed, serves as the protein for one school lunch.

This is also the perfect way to prepare diced or sliced chicken breast to top salads, and the original recipe on The Kitchn includes modified instructions for making shredded chicken for tacos and other dishes.

Yield: 3 chicken breasts Total time: 25 minutes
