  3. Remove cooked chicken from the pot and shred either on your cutting board or by adding to your stand mixer with your paddle attachment.  Add cooked chicken back to the pot, cover and simmer for 20- 30 minutes. Adjust salt and pepper at this time.

  1. Select the saute function on your instant pot. Wait 1 minute for it to heat up. Add oil, onion and garlic and sauté for a minute or so. Press cancel on your instant pot.
  2. Now add raw chicken breasts, broth, green chiles, beans, and spices, and stir to combine. Close the lid and make sure the valve is set to the “sealing” position.
  3. Cook at high pressure for 15 minutes.
  4. Let it naturally de-pressurize for 8-10 minutes, then carefully (don’t put your face in front or near valve!) switch the valve to “venting” to completely release the steam before opening the lid.
  5. Shred chicken, add lime juice and cilantro, Serve with toppings of choice. 


  1. Add onion, garlic, chicken, broth, and spices to your crockpot; cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 2-4 hours (depending on the strength of your crockpot)
  2. Once the chicken is cooked, remove from the crockpot and shred using stand mixer or two forks.
  3. Add beans, chiles, chicken back to pot and cook another 20 minutes.
  4. Stir in Lime juice and cilantro; serve in bowls with toppings of choice!  I highly recommend topping with cilantro, red onion, tomatoes, and salsa.
