I'm literally eating this while I type the recipe, which is a first for me, so you know this Instant Pot Crack Chicken is that good. That. Good. If you have an Instant Pot, try this recipe… it's the simplest ever!

If you are tracking points with Weight Watchers, this meal comes out to be about 3 points per serving! See the additional notes after the recipe on how to serve crack chicken on 2 Ingredient Bagels and to lower the points if needed!

I will also let you in on a little secret. If you have an Instant Pot, you can use it as an air fryer with this one little addition!

Instant Pot Crack Chicken

I learned how to make Instant Pot Crack Chicken from Cook Fast Eat Well, who got her inspiration from a viral Facebook video. I feel like it would've been better had I added some jalapeños, so I'll definitely add them next time!

  1. Made this for the first time tonight. So good. I added extra cheese, but may cut back on the ranch powder next time. I did put jalapenos in my bowl and it was good!
