I don’t know about you, but it is becoming increasingly hard for me to find recipes that I can get my whole family to agree on.

If my family had their own way I’m pretty sure I would be in the kitchen for hours in the evenings preparing individual meals for everyone, catering to what they like and what they fancy. That is why when I find a recipe the whole family likes, I add it to my list of guaranteed “family faves” and I’m quick to spread the word.

That is where this Instant Pot crack chicken comes in, as it is so quick and easy to make and best of all, the whole family loves it. What I really like about this recipe is that it can be made using an Instant Pot pressure cooker. So pop all the ingredients in during the morning, plug in your Instant Pot and dinner is ready in about 20 minutes! Don’t worry about slaving in the kitchen for hours with this recipe. Now, that is what I call easy peasy!

Ready to give it a go? Fantastic. Here are all of the ingredients and an easy recipe for you to make the most mouth-wateringly scrumptious crack chicken dinner your family has ever tasted.
