Instant Pot Chicken Philly: A Tender Delicious Sandwich

Instant Po Chicken Philly When it comes to a Chicken Philly Sandwich, this is the best I’ve ever tasted! What’s even better is that it was a snap to make in the Instant Pot!

This is very similar to the Philly Steak recipe that I posted a while back. So if you prefer chicken over beef, this is a great option! There are times when I make a pot of steak Philly and a pot of chicken Philly. That’s the beauty of having two pots.

The combination of tender chicken, sautéed onions, peppers and provolone on a crunchy hoagie roll, is sure to please!

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can make this in a crock pot. However, it may take you a little longer, like 6 hours longer. I love my Instant Pot.
