  • 5-6 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 24 oz salsa any variety
  1. Layer raw chicken breasts into the bottom of 6-qt instant pot. Cover with salsa. Close lid.
  2. Turn steam release handle to SEALING. Set Instant Pot to Chicken/Poultry setting. Increase cook time by 10 minutes. After 10 seconds, the Instant Pot will start heating.
  3. When cooking cycle is completed, let steam release naturally. 
  4. Drain chicken and reserve cooking liquids. Return chicken to Instant Pot. Use two forks to shred chicken. Return 1-2 cups of cooking liquids back to the pot to moisten chicken. 
Recipe Notes
Salsa Chicken can also be cooked in a slow cooker on low for about 6 hours or on high for about 3 hours. 

Last week, I bought a couple packages of chicken breasts to make fajitas but we didn’t get around to making them. We were headed out of town so I went ahead and put the chicken into the Instant Pot and made this Salsa Chicken recipe.

The Salsa Chicken took about an hour to cook start to finish and it turned out great. I portioned out the shredded chicken into freezer bags then let them cool before sticking them in the freezer.

Versatile Shredded Salsa Chicken
Shredded Salsa Chicken can be used in many different dishes – Chicken Enchiladas, Chicken Soft Tacos or Mexican Chicken Casserole. I’ll be sharing my Chicken Nachos recipe later this week so be sure to Follow Us on Facebook because I know you won’t want to miss it!

I wish I’d thought to take better photos of this chicken but it turned out very flavorful and moist. It’s definitely a crowd-favorite around here.

Asus ZenBook 14 (UX433) Review

Asus has revamped the ZenBook line with a whole new design, including a lighter build, redesigned hinge, and a light-up numpad built right into the touch pad
Should I Buy The Asus ZenBook 14 UX433?
The ZenBook 14 is a very promising shakeup to the Asus laptop line. It’s smaller, lighter, and better looking than any of the previous models, without having to sacrifice either ports or powers. There aren't many laptops around that can offer you a 14in display in a body this compact while still giving you USB-A and HDMI ports, not to mention a Core i7 processor.
Unless you're an Excel addict you can probably safely ignore the glowing numpad - it's a fun gimmick, but most of us will probably forget it's even there, and without tactile feedback it's hardly a proper replacement for the keys. Still, this is a strong enough laptop elsewhere that it doesn't need that gimmick to get by, and there's plenty to recommend it otherwise.
