It’s fall, y’all! Okay, it’s actually 80 degrees today but next week the high is in the mid-40s with snow forecasted but if that ain’t Colorado for ya, I don’t know what is. Few things kick off the season better than Broncos football, cool evenings, and green chili. This is a meal I grew up with and is a family tradition to make in mass amounts at the end of each farmer’s market season. You could say that green chili is part of my family’s legacy (#toofar?) so I take it really seriously so when the craving struck, I knew I needed an easy and quick way to make it. Hello, InstantPot! I just threw everything in, set it to cook, then ate approximately one million Siete chips while I waited. You can watch the step-by-step recipe on my “Recipes” highlight on Instagram or save this for later. Either way, you’ll love it!
I should warn you of two things though:
This is spicy. Heat runs through my blood, I cannot help it. If you want to mitigate the heat, use a mild green chili sauce and plain diced tomatoes.
This feeds enough to cover your entire church potluck (remember those?) and then some so plan on having it for leftovers!
Okay, let’s get to the recipe!
InstantPot Chicken Green Chili
1/2 white onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 T ghee
12 oz chicken bone broth (I used Bonafide Provisions)
28 oz can of fire roasted tomatoes
16 oz jar of green chili sauce (I use 505 Southwestern)
1 can of coconut milk
1.5 - 2 lb chicken breasts
2 T arrowroot starch
2 T filtered water
1/2 tsp sea salt
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
Set InstantPot on low saute and cook onion and garlic in ghee until fragrant. Add in broth, tomatoes, green chili sauce, coconut milk, and chicken. Seal vent and set on high pressure for 12 minutes. Once it’s through the cycle, quick release pressure, remove chicken and shred, setting InstantPot to “Keep Warm”. In small bowl, whisk arrowroot starch and water to form a slurry. Add chicken back into the InstantPot along with arrowroot starch and spices and stir to combine. Allow to sit until slightly thickened and then serve!
I hope you enjoy! If you make it, tag me on Instagram! I’d love to see!
