Made with chicken breast, white kidney beans, green chilies, onion, cream cheese and chicken broth. Simple ingredients with lots of flavor.

This recipe is made with freezer and pantry staples and cooking it in the Instant Pot saves time so you can enjoy a wholesome meal even during busy weeknights.


• Olive oil • Fresh garlic and onion • Chicken broth • Boneless Chicken breast • Cannellini beans • Green chilies • Cream cheese

Select the Sauté setting. Add Olive oil and allow to heat. Then add in onion and garlic to the Instant Pot.


To avoid burn notice, add in ½ cup of chicken broth and scrape loose any browned bits from the bottom of the Instant pot.


Next add the beans, green chilies, chicken, cumin, salt, chili powder, cayenne pepper and the remaining chicken broth to the Instant Pot.


Close the lid, lock it and turn the Steam Release to Sealing position.


For a dairy free version leave out the cream cheese and mash (or puree in blender) one of the cans of beans until smooth, before adding to Instant Pot.
