Instant Pot Chicken Ranch Tacos

  • Author: Kelley


My favorite slow cooker chicken taco recipe adapted for the pressure cooker so dinner can be on the table in 30 minutes!


  • 1 1/2 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 11 oz packet of ranch dressing mix
  • 12 oz green salsa (Trader Joes is my favorite!)


  • In a small bowl, mix ranch dressing mix with the green salsa.
  • Place chicken breasts in the Instant Pot. Sprinkle with a pinch of kosher salt.
  • Pour the salsa mixture over the chicken breasts.
  • Set the Instant Pot to ‘poultry’ setting. Cook for 10 minutes. Let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes and then finish with a quick release. Shred chicken and toss in the ranch/salsa sauce.


Serve the ranch chicken in hard corn shells (my favorite!), flour tortillas, as a burrito bowl, or as a taco salad with all your favorite fixings.
