Instant Pot Mississippi Mud Chicken

If you love the flavor profile of Mississippi mud pot roast you will love this chicken version too! It's so packed full of delicious flavors and completely versatile too. Pile this on rolls for sandwiches, serve spooned over mashed potatoes or rice with that deliciously tangy sauce. Serve over baked potatoes - take your pick! 

The chicken comes out so very tender, and just bursting with flavor. I adore the tang from the pepperoncinis in this recipe - and THANK YOU Instant Pot for getting this dish on the table in record time! 

Do you love your Instant Pot the way I love mine?! It's absolutely brilliant for recipes like this. I feel like I'm always on the go, and sometimes the day just gets away from me completely! Like... right now... I need to go hop in the car and get my daughter to ballet! I hope on your busy days a recipe like this makes life just a little bit easier!

Instant Pot Mississippi Mud Chicken

3 lbs boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into about 4-5 oz pieces
1/2 cup water
8-oz jarred pepperoncinis (with juice) (whole or sliced)
1 (1-oz) packet Au Jus or Brown Gravy Mix
1 (1-oz) packet Ranch Dressing/Seasoning Mix
4 TBS (1/2 stick) butter

  1. Place chicken pieces in the bottom of your instant pot. Add in the water, pepperoncinis with juice, au jus mix, and ranch dressing mix. Give it a stir to get the powder into the liquid. Place the butter on top. 
  2. Place the lid on and seal, set for 10-minutes.
  3. Allow to naturally release for 5 minutes. 
  4. Chicken should be fork tender. Shred chicken into the gravy and serve over mashed potatoes or rice, if desired.
