    1. I am so sorry that this one did not work for you. We have had good experiences with it so far. Did you change anything? Add or subtract items?

      Instant Pots can be different due to elevation or amounts – was your chicken frozen in a solid chunk or were the pieces individually frozen?

      Any of those things could have caused uncooked chicken.

      Feel free to pop into chat (in the right hand corner of the site) during chat hours if you have any other questions!

      1. Yes, Shannon. Feel free to add more time as you see fit! Especially if you increase serving sizes or have thicker pieces of meat.

  1. This recipe turned out great. Had to modify the spices a bit because I didn’t have chipotle powder. I subbed smoked paprika and it was fine. Timing was great too. Will make again!

  2. I loved this recipe! I didn’t have any chipotle powder but I did have some chipotle in adobo sauce and just took out a couple and rub it into the chicken. My family loved it!

    1. Hi Kinzie, Thank you so much for your feedback on this recipe. We do know that you may have to adjust your cook time if you increase or decrease your serving size. As a general rule, you typically add 2-5 minutes for every additional two servings, so 14-15 minutes seems like the perfect cook time for 6 servings, opposed to 4 listed in the recipe.

      This is a great post on making adjustments cooking in the Instant Pot.

      I hope this helps. ~OAMM

  3. This is only the second meal I’ve made in the pressure cooker. First time making chicken. It was DELICIOUS!! I ate mine and finished both kid’s portions too. I loved it so much. Thanks for posting!!

  4. Just made this and it turned out great. I had 2.5 lbs of chicken tenders and cooked it for 10 mins and natural release for 8. Thanks!

  5. Made this tonight and it turned out great! Definitely making it again. Didn’t have chipotle powder so used chili powder instead. Other than that, followed the directions exactly!

    1. Hi Lynn, on step #5 from make from frozen, we indicate this should be cooked on high pressure (manual button). I hope this helps. All of our recipes should indicate the mode (soup, meat/poultry etc.) or manual / high pressure.

  6. I’m cooking chicken tenders from refrigerator, this is only my second time using Instant Pot and am a rookie. I’m cooking about 8 strips and want to use bbq sauce, am thinking I should add water also. But my real question is, do I Closs valve to venting and when timer has gone off open steamer. Am truly a rookie!

    1. Hi Mary! We suggest learning more about your Instant Pot before attempting to make this recipe. A great place to start would be here: https://onceamonthmeals.com/instant-pot/

      You’ll need to make sure that your valve is closed in order for your meal to pressure cook and open in order to vent.

      We hope this helps!

    1. ‘Natural release’ is when you allow your pressure cooker to release pressure on its own without opening up your valve to vent. Opening up your valve to let out the steam, which is known as a ‘quick release’.
