Dump and go recipe

To begin you are going to place all of the chicken breasts into the bottom of the inner pot of the Instant Pot. After you have put the chicken in simply pour the chicken broth over and then return the top of the Instant Pot. Make sure to twist the top on all the way.

Next, ensure that the valve on the top of the lid is turned to the “seal” setting. After doing this, use the manual button and move the timer 6 minutes. Though the actual cooking time is 6 minutes, it actually takes about 5-10 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to full pressure to begin cooking.

If you are using frozen chicken breasts give yourself a little more time. Cook the chicken for 10 minutes on manual. It will take about 10-12 minutes for the Instant Pot to come to pressure when using frozen chicken.



The time has come, that beeper goes off. What do you do? NOTHING. Let it sit like that for 5 minutes (natural release).

After it says L0:05 on the screen, you are then going to move the valve to the “vent” setting.

BE CAREFUL when you do this, as it will release any steam and pressure that is left in the Instant Pot.

After the little pin drops next to the valve, meaning all the pressure has been released, open up the lid.

Take all of the chicken out of the pot, again be careful as the inner pot will still be VERY hot. Make sure to leave the juice in the Instant Pot to get the desired creamy texture for the chicken caesar sandwiches.

Simply begin shredding the chicken with a fork until all the big chunks are broken up.

After all of the chicken has been shredded, put it in a bowl and add the Caesar salad dressing, shredded Parmesan cheese, freshly chopped parsley, and black pepper. Continue to mix all of the ingredients together until everything equally combined.


  1. You can use either shredded parmesan or grated parmesan cheese
  2. The more dressing you add the creamier it will be (make it however you like!)
  3. If you don’t have fresh parsley dried parsley can be substituted, however fresh is my favorite
  4. If you don’t like Caesar dressing or don’t have any on hand, feel free to use ranch dressing instead. It will have a different flavor, but will still be delicious.
  5. Romaine lettuce can be substituted with your favorite greens

Once everything is combined to your desired flavor and creaminess, just spoon the chicken caesar mixture onto the buns, top it with lettuce, and serve them with your favorite side. My favorite buns are kaiser rolls, but any bun will do!


    • This is also a great recipe to use a rotisserie chicken with – just pick up a rotisserie chicken at the store, shred it up, and start at the 5th step in the directions!
    • You can also cook this chicken in a slow cooker. Follow the same directions at outlined, but instead cook it in the slow cooker on low heat for 4-5 hours (or 3 hours on high).
    • If you want a faster way to shred the chicken, simply put it in your KitchenAid mixing bowl with the paddle attachment and turn it on the 1st or 2nd speed for 2-3 minutes and TA-DA!! Completely shredded! It doesn’t get simpler than that.

    I have watched alot of your viedo's and you make things easy. I got this Insta pot a year or two and even your viedos look simple and easy but I learn hands on. I try to read the mannual and and it sounds like the peanut gang talking. I have no idea how this even works all the buttons and controls it is itimidating and when things get to complicated i just shut down. I live outside cincinnati and been tring to find someone to teach me. My cooking skills are very limited. with technolgy today is there anyway to do a one on one viedo chat thing and teach me how this works and do a recipe or 2 with me so I can feel comortable. I learn so much better hands on. what do you think? 513 253 4786
