Instant Pot Chicken Corn Chowder

My husband is always on the lookout for a new pressure cooker recipe. During these chilly winter days, soup is always on our minds. He found a great corn chowder recipe to use as a base. Then he kicked it up by adding rotisserie chicken for a hearty meal.

Easy Meals with Rotisserie Chicken

Buying whole rotisserie chickens and pulling the meat off the bone is our new standby when we need to add chicken to a meal. Yes, rotisserie chickens can be injected with a lot of salt, but they add so much more flavor to any meal.

Just make sure you are not adding any extra unnecessary salt to the dish. Plus who wants to thaw and cook frozen chicken. It is so much faster just to buy it and pull the meat yourself. Rotisserie chicken makes every dish taste out of this world good.

MAKE AHEAD: Place single servings in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. 
FREEZER: Place in an airtight container or freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months. Defrost in a microwave or in the refrigerator overnight. Bake on 350 for 25 minutes or microwave for 5 minutes on high until done.
