Ingredients
  

  • 5 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 1 orange pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 3 cups shredded cheese combo of sharp cheddar and pepper jack
  • 2 Tbsp cajun seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp fresh crushed pepper
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 Tbsp taco seasoning (see notes below)
  • 1 Tbsp Steak seasoning
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • EVOO

Instructions
 

  • (You can cook the chicken many different ways for this recipe. For me, the easiest is to throw the frozen chicken breasts in the Pressure cooker/Insta Pot. If you want to saute or grill, that would work great too. Just cook and cube chicken)
  • Place frozen chicken breasts in Pressure cooker. Drizzle EVOO on top along with half the quantity of seasonings. Set pressure cooker to 20 mins, with slow release.
    TIP: Dump all seasonings into a small saucer and mix together. Then just pour half of that mixture onto chicken. The rest is reserved for the peppers and onions.
  • Preheat Oven to 350℉
  • Put butter in a medium size skillet over medium heat.
  • Add in sliced peppers and onions, saute until medium tender. Add the other half of seasoning into mixture while cooking.
  • Add sour cream and cream cheese into saute pan and mix well.
  • Once chicken is done, remove from pressure cooker and cube.
  • Add chicken and pepper mixture into a 9×13 pan. Spread evenly.
  • Top with cheese and Bake for 15-20 mins or until cheese is bubbly.
  • I set the oven to broil for 3 minutes at end of baking to make the cheese a tiny bit crispy on the tops. It really adds a delicious texture.
  • Optional for serving: We love to top it over rice. Add salsa, sour cream, or gaucamole.
    Sides: refried beans, chips & salsa or black beans
