Do you like to Meal Prep? Because I do! In fact, I always seem to have a bag of Shredded Chicken in my Freezer for such an occasion. I never know when my son will be having friends over for games or to watch a movie and this has saved me a time to two.
But don’t worry if you don’t have any shredded chicken on hand. We’ve got directions for you to make it fresh in your Instant Pot. It’s easily made, I promise.
Mix up the Fajita Seasonings in a bowl . You will use half the seasonings for the chicken and the other half on the vegetables. Slice your chicken thin and place in a bowl on zip-loc bag and sprinkle seasoning over top and shake to coat. Repeat the same with the sliced vegetables.
Add water to the bottom of your Instant Pot, and place the trivet on the bottom. I then like to use a piece of foil folded to about the size of the trivet to place the chicken on. It helps keep the meat up and out of the liquid.
Set your Pressure Cooker to Manual (Pressure Cook) High for 5 minutes, with a 5 minute Natural Release (NR) and then open lid and place your veggies on top and cook on Manual (Pressure Cook) high for 1 minute. Then Quick Release. Your meat and veggies are all done in one pot!
Slice your Hawaiian Rolls in half horizontally and place the bottom portion in a greased baking dish. Add the Cilantro Lime Dip on the bread and place your Fajita Chicken on top, and then top with your sautéed veggies. Don’t forget to top with cheese. Brush with a yummy Buttery Garlic mixture and throw into the oven to bake.
Just a minute while I run to the kitchen to make these mouthwatering Chicken Fajita Sliders. haha…
