My Instant Pot® obsession continues, and this time I turned my Adobo Slow Cooker Chicken into Instant Pot Adobo Chicken. I have no idea why I reversed the words in the title, oh well. Either way you make it, you will end up with juicy, delicious chicken that is perfect as a taco or burrito filling…..

Garnish as desired with sour cream, avocado, cheese, etc. Unless of course you are following a Paleo or Whole 30 diet….then you will need to stick to Paleo Cauliflower Rice or Cassava Flour Tortillas with no sour cream or shredded cheese! 😉

This Instant Pot Adobo Chicken really is delicious no matter how you serve it, and it makes awesome leftovers as well. 🙂

Notes:

  • If you like spicy food, choose HOT or SPICY chile peppers! This recipe is NOT spicy as it is written.
  • For extra heat, add sliced jalapenos on top of the tomatoes before cooking…and then add more when serving.
  • Hot sauce is quite spicy as well, add a few splashes when serving.
  • Make sure you check your chicken to be sure it is cooked thoroughly. If not, put the lid back on and continue cooking for a few minutes.
  • I have this Instant Pot® and I absolutely love it!! {affiliate link}
  • Yes you can make this recipe with a different brand of pressure cooker, but your buttons may be different.

  2. Just made recipe in my brand new instant pot duo plus. Turned out great ! I would have never thought to use those two seasonings together. I used both liberally. Thanks !
