Instant Pot Frozen Chicken and Potatoes

November 4, 2019

Hello blog friends and Happy November.  

I love cooking fast and easy weeknight meals as many of you may know.  One of the ways I can accomplish this is by cooking a meal using my Instant Pot.

I usually have frozen chicken cutlets in the freezer to thaw for a weeknight meal.  One day I didn't take out of the freezer the chicken cutlets.  Instead, I decided to make this chicken dish using the frozen chicken in the Instant Pot for a quick meal.

I was amazed at how this dish came out tasting so fresh and delicious.  I also made Instant Pot White Rice as a side to go with this meal.  

This chicken dish reminds me of Chicken Stew.  If you like using the Instant Pot, I hope you'll try out this easy weeknight meal.

Chicken and Potatoes just finished cooking in the Instant Pot



5 frozen chicken cutlets
1 cup of chicken or vegetable broth
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper flakes
12 small potatoes - cut up small
1 small bag of frozen mixed vegetables
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Spray bottom of Instant Pot with cooking spray.  Add butter, garlic, and broth into the pot.  Place frozen chicken, potatoes, mixed vegetables, and spices into the pot.  Close the lid and make sure the vent is sealed.  Press the Manual Setting/High Pressure and set to 25 minutes and natural release.


You can make rice or mashed potatoes for a side and then place the chicken mixture on top.
