Creamy Taco Chicken is our all time favorite Instant Pot recipe!  It’s easy, it’s healthy, and it’s so dang delicious!

 

I originally found this recipe in the Instant Pot Cookbook:  500 Recipes, Quick and Easy by Jennifer Smith.  It was called Cream Cheese Chicken – yum!  Here’s the pickle, cream cheese is so high fat and can be substituted so easily with something just as creamy to give the same effect as cream cheese, without packing on the calories.  Enter — GREEK YOGURT!  I substitute Greek Yogurt for so many other creamy meal additives like mayonnaise, sour cream, and cream cheese.  I decided to give it a whirl – sub out ALL the cream cheese that the recipe called for a replace it with protein-packed Greek Yogurt.  And the verdict?  TOTAL SUCCESS!
