  1. Place all of your ingredients into your instant pot bowl. 
  2. Cover the pot and seal the lid. Switch the valve to the “seal” position and cook for 20 minutes on manual high pressure.
  3. When done cooking, let it naturally release/depressurize for 10 minutes, then switch the valve to the “vent” position to fully release steam before opening lid.
  4. Shred the chicken breasts and stir everything together. If the cream cheese is chunky, stirring in the chicken should help break it up and smooth it out.
  5. Serve warm with garlic bread, tortilla chips or other garnishes.


You can substitute the sour cream for an extra 4 oz of cream cheese, if desired.
