My favorite pressure cooker is the Instant Pot. It has multiple functions like saute, slow cook, steam, pressure cooker and more. By using an Instant Pot, you can speed up the cooking time compared to if you cooked the same meal on the stove top.

Tomatoes on the Keto Diet

Yes, tomatoes have carbs in them. And yes, they are allowed on the keto diet – as long as you don’t go overboard with them. One medium tomato has 4 carbs; however, most keto recipes only call for a few tomatoes for the entire recipe. Per serving, tomatoes don’t make a huge impact to your total daily carb limit.

Tomatoes add so much flavor to keto recipes too! They make Italian and Mexican recipes possible on your low carb diet.

Easiest Way to Shred Chicken

The easiest way to shred cooked chicken is to us an electric mixer. Sure you can transfer the chicken to your KitchenAid or shred it with two forks and achieve the same results. But why make a mess by pulling out the chicken and transferring it to a new bowl or cutting board that you will have to wash??

You can use an electric mixer to shred your chicken right in the same pot (your Instant Pot liner or slow cooker). Mix everything together in your Instant Pot liner. This will not only shred your chicken but create a creamy chili broth.

Keto White Chicken Chili Storage & Reheating Instructions

Store the leftover chili in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. The chili is freezer safe both before you cook it and after. Place the chili or ingredients in a freezer safe ziploc bag or container and freeze for later use.

Reheat the chili in the microwave or on the stove top until heat through.

  1. I am new to the Instant Pot. This recipe sounds delicious, but I need some guidance with your instructions…
    When you say ‘pressure cook on high for 15 mins’, what is the setting i should use on the pot? Slow cook? Stew? And how do you release the pressure?

    1. Hit the Pressure Cook button. It should default to high pressure cooking so you shouldn’t have to mess with that. Then move the timer to 15 minutes and hit start. To release the pressure, either press down the valve or turn the valve to vent. It depends on the model you have.

  2. Hi, this looks delicious! I’m wondering what the time difference for the instapot would be if I use frozen chicken?

      1. This was a great idea and question about being able to add frozen chicken. I did this although the consistency turned out too soupy (bc of the water from from frozen chicken) and so I had to compensate with adding more cauliflower rice to thicken it up. Perhaps next time I would adjust the chicken broth to just 1 cup versus the 1.5 cups in recipe. Taste was still extraordinary; thanks for a great recipe!!

  3. I like your recipe, it sounds so delicious and i will make it today but i want to have this specific recipe on file.
    I want to print the recipe to have it handy. I pressed print and it only underlines print nothing comes on the top to print.
    How do i print?

  4. I am using this as a meal prep. Is it okay to add the cauliflower rice now or should I add it separately to each meal?

  5. This was terrific. I had all of the ingredients on hand. I did use chicken breasts instead because my husband doesn’t like chicken thighs. Turned out great! Thank you!

  6. Delicious! Best chicken chili recipe I’ve had! I substituted two cans of rotelle diced tomatoes with chilies for diced tomatoes and green chilies.

  7. OMG, I just died and went to heaven. BEST Recipe since I started Keto. THANK YOU SO MUCH for your site as well as your youtube videos, you’re definitely a go to for me!! Melinda
