  • 1 lb Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
  • ¾ cup Hot Sauce Such as Frank's or Texas Pete
  • ½ cup Ranch Dressing
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup Cheddar Shredded


  • Add the chicken and ½ cup of water to the Instant Pot.
  • Cover the Instant Pot and set to "High" pressure for 20 minutes (30 minutes if your chicken is frozen).
  • After the cooking is completed, release the pressure.
  • Take the chicken out of the Instant Pot and place it on a cutting board. Shred the chicken into small pieces.
  • Discard the liquid left in the Instant Pot. Place the Instant Pot insert back in the Instant Pot.
  • Turn the Instant Pot on "Sauté".
  • Add the cream cheese, ranch, and hot sauce to the Instant Pot. Stir until melted.
  • Add the chicken and cheddar back into the Instant Pot and stir until completely combined.
  • Optional step- Transfer the dip to an oven safe baking dish and top with more cheddar. Bake for 10 minutes until the cheese is melted. Serve!


  • Cheddar, white cheddar, Colby Jack, or Monterey Jack are all delicious options for cheese in this dip.
  • Place the dip in the Instant Pot and set the Instant Pot to "Keep Warm" so it stays warm while your guests enjoy it.
  • Chicken thighs can be used instead of chicken breasts, just make sure they are boneless and skinless.
  • If you are using frozen chicken breasts, increase the cooking time to 30 minutes.
