Easy Instant Pot Crack Chicken

It says it all in the name and it’s as addicting as it sounds. This super easy and quick Instant Pot meal is a family favorite that all of the kids (even the picky ones) will love. You can serve it as sandwiches, sliders, dip, or top it on a salad.

For the bacon, I just cooked it in the microwave while the chicken was cooking in the Instant Pot. Enjoy!
