I don’t know if you’ve ever tried it, but these Instant Pot Crack Chicken recipes are so out of this world yummy, your kids will be begging for more. And so will you tongue–that greedy little…
In all seriousness, though, crack chicken is ah-mazing. You don’t get a chicken more tasty than that.
Now, I know that you can make slow cooker crack chicken–and the crock pot is great. But, pressure cooking is so much faster and, frankly, easier.
So, I plan to just bury myself in pressure cooker crack chicken. Easy easy and so tasty. Join me in this new, yummy addiction.
How Long is Crack Chicken Good For in the Fridge?
Crack chicken is good in the fridge for 3-4 days, like most any chicken cooked and then chilled. My preference is to reheat it for 2-3 minutes in the microwave when I’m ready for my leftovers.
Is Crack Chicken Good Cold?
You know, I love a good cold fried chicken leg or chicken thigh, but, that’s like a me thing. With salt.
Cold crack chicken, however, is not a me thing. I prefer this particular chicken recipe warm because the cream cheese firms up and makes the texture all sorts of, well, firm. Which is kind of the opposite of how I like my chicken casserole.
Why Do They Call It Crack Chicken?
You know, I think that the original idea was that there was something to do with a chicken on the seasoning package–a baby chick in an egg? I don’t know. That sounds insane to me.
I rather like to think that it’s everything to do with this particular chicken being so yummy, it’s addictive like crack and I am going to stand on that.
What do I need to make Instant Pot Crack Chicken Recipes?
Generally, to make crack chicken, here is what you need:
- Ranch Dressing
- Green Onion
- Cooked Bacon
- Cheddar Cheese
- Salt & Pepper
- Hot Sauce, if desired
Of course, each recipe is going to be different with cooking times, natural release vs. quick release, but you’re really looking at cooking then removing the chicken then shred the chicken and you’re off.
