How to turn this Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Chicken into a Freezer Meal:
Add all ingredients EXCEPT CHICKEN BROTH to a gallon-sized freezer bag. Place freezer bag into freezer and it will last up to 60 days.
When ready to use, dump ingredients from bag into Instant Pot and add 1 cup of chicken broth in with the frozen food.
Place the lid on top, move the valve to SEALING, and press the MANUAL button. Set timer for 25 minutes.
You can do a NATURAL RELEASE or QUICK RELEASE when the timer is done – I even like to let it sit in the Instant Pot for a few hours so that it falls apart so easily. Follow the rest of the instructions as written.
