“Yummy!” That is exactly what I was saying the whole time eating this delicious chili cranberry chicken in the Instant Pot recipe.

This is actually a very old recipe I have had for years. The other day while sorting through my recipes and getting myself a bit organized I came across this recipe. I thought how perfect this would be for the Instant Pot.

With only 4 ingredients needed it was a no-brainer.

  • Chili sauce
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Orange marmalade
  • and chicken breasts

Served over a bed of Jasmine rice. I admit I did the rice on the stovetop. It was one of those boil-in-the-bag kinds.

I even used my Insta-Pan to prepare this meal. That’s what I love about my pan. Bake a bundt cake, a cheesecake, make lasagna, taco pie, meatloaf, and use it as a PIP pan. All in one:)

With a meal like this, I prefer not to have the chicken breasts floating around in the juices in the pot. Some meals I don’t mind that, but this one, it didn’t seem appealing that way.

Enjoy the recipe and let me know if you tried it. By the way, I am doing well on my Weight Watchers. Down 5 lbs. It is going to be a slow and steady road ahead, but I am making progress so that inspires me to stay on track. It sure is a lot easier to gain weight, rather than lose it.

  • 3 tbsp orange marmalade
  • tsp ground allspice
  • 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts


  • Set pressure cooker to saute mode and add vegetable oil, saute chicken on both sides

  • Place 1 cup of water into the pressure cooker. Place your trivet in the cooker and set the springform pan on the trivet before securing the lid. Set cooker on high pressure for 12 minutes.

If you choose not to use the springform pan, your sauce will be a bit thinner but should still be yummy.
