Instant Pot Freezer Meal: White Chicken Chili

[Instant Pot] Freezer Meal: White Chicken Chili

A super-satisfying high protein one-pot meal! If we were to pre-chop chicken breast into bite-sized pieces, they would risk overcooking when sharing the pot with our soaked-but-not-cooked white beans. For that reason, it works best to keep the whole split breast intact in your freezer meal, then shred or chop it after cooking. You also save yourself the job of carefully washing a raw-poultry cutting board on prep day!
