As someone who proudly owns more than one crockpot, I have to say I absolutely love them.

Funny enough, I received one as a gift for Christmas and it’s definitely something I use multiple times a week.
My crockpot dump and go routine is awesome (not gonna lie), but sometimes an instant pot really comes in handy when I don’t have time to prep in the morning. I hate the idea of going home and having to cook a meal when I’m STARVING. It’s not pretty. But that’s where an instant pot can save the day. You could throw everything in, even stuff that you forgot to thaw, and dinner will be ready in the time you finish taking a shower. Pretty cool, eh?
I’ve been loving my instant pot and chicken is my go-to protein. So I’ve rounded up 45 of the best instant pot chicken dinner recipes, enjoy!
