Chef Tips

  • You can also prepare this meal in a pressure cooker. To do so, spread half the salsa in the bottom of the pressure cooker (add a few tablespoons of water if your salsa is thick), then place chicken on top. Sprinkle seasoning, if using, all over the chicken. Cover the chicken with the remaining salsa, beans, and veggies. Use manual high pressure for 15 minutes, then naturally release the pressure (remove from heat or turn off and let sit) for 10 minutes.
