Ingredients You’ll Need

To whip up this easy dinner recipe, you’ll need a few ingredients that you probably already have at home. Grab some skinless chicken breasts or chicken thighs—whichever you prefer—and don’t forget a can of cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, and cream of celery soup. You’ll also need chicken broth, sour cream, Swiss cheese, cheddar cheese, and some savory stuffing mix. With these pantry staples, you’re ready to create a delicious meal.

Let’s Get Cooking!

Now that you have all your ingredients, it’s time to get cooking! The Instant Pot will be your best friend for this recipe, as it cuts down on the cooking time and infuses the flavors together. Say goodbye to long hours spent in the kitchen and hello to a stress-free dinner prep. The Instant Pot is a great way to get a hearty dinner from the kitchen to your table fast!

Preparing the Chicken

First, let’s prepare the star of our dish—the chicken. You have the option to use rotisserie chicken for added convenience, or you can cook your own chicken. Either way, make sure the chicken is cooked and shredded before moving on to the next step.

Mixing the Soup Mixture

In a small bowl, mix together the cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, cream of celery soup, sour cream, and chicken broth. This delightful combination will be the heart and soul of our casserole, providing the creamy goodness that we all love.

Assembling the Casserole

Now it’s time to layer the ingredients in a casserole dish. Start with a generous layer of the stuffing mix at the bottom, followed by the cooked and shredded chicken. Pour the soup mixture on top of the chicken, ensuring that it covers the entire dish. Finally, sprinkle some Swiss cheese and cheddar cheese on the very top, adding a gooey and melty finish to the casserole.

Pressure Cooking to Perfection

It’s time to put your Instant Pot to work. Place the trivet inside the pressure cooker and add some hot water to the pot. Carefully lower the casserole dish onto the trivet, making sure it’s stable and secure. Lock the lid of the Instant Pot and set it to high pressure. Cook for a short amount of time, allowing all the flavors to meld together and creating a delicious, complete meal. Don’t forget to add some sides and a dessert as well!
