Pressure Cooker Chicken Salad

We love chicken salad, but sometimes having the same old same old recipe gets boring. That’s how this recipe was born. I had the idea. Tried it. And it worked even better than I had imagined! Don’t I wish all my creations were so successful.

Quick and Easy Lunch or Dinner

The process for this chicken salad couldn’t be easier. Add the first 3 ingredients to a bag and marinate in the fridge. Then dump the contents of the bag in the pressure cooker and cook for ten minutes. Cool chicken, chop and mix in the remaining ingredients. That’s it. Delicious chicken salad that’s packed with bold, bright, and refreshing ranch flavor! Perfect for sandwiches or dipping.
