Taco nights are our favorite nights

Our guys like to help us with the meal plan, and every week they ask for Tacos on Tuesdays. They make sure that every Tuesday night is a Taco night. We like to mix the type of Tacos we have (Steak, salmon, vegetables), but one of their most popular Tacos are the instant chicken tacos. They love them and we love making them because they are so simple! They are the perfect Tacos for a busy week.

How to make instant chicken Tacos

The instant pot is the key to making these simple Chicken Tacos. The instant pot works it’s magical and can become a delicious dinner in no time. I am so happy that pressure cookers are back in Fashion, because they make it easier to cook dinner. You can put chicken in the instant pot and prepare a dinner in no time!

We like to prepare these Chicken Tacos crushed in the instant pot, because they are juicy, tasty and, moreover, easy to prepare. You just need a few ingredients and spices, probably ingredients you already have in your kitchen, and all the ingredients you can find in any Kroger store.

First, turn the instant pan to fry and cook the chicken, onion and garlic for a few minutes. Then add the roasted tomatoes to the Kroger fire. We like to use fire-roasted tomatoes, because they add a lot of flavor to the chicken. We also add chili powder, cumin, Paprika, salt and pepper. And that’s it, you just let the instant pot do the rest of the work.

When the chicken is ready to cook, remove it from the instant pan and chop it with two forks. Pro Tip: You can also place the chicken breasts in a bowl and chop them with a hand blender or stand mixer. He’ll shred the chicken in no time.

Place the shredded in the instant jar with the juices. Stir and you’re ready to make Tacos! You want the chicken to be juicy so that it has a lot of flavor. If there is a little too much liquid, just serve with a split spoon, but keep the liquid. You don’t want dry chicken Tacos!
