  • Instant Pot Pressure Cooker



  • In a shallow dish, combine Panko, salt, and pepper. Set aside. 
  • Pound chicken breast to 1/2" thickness (try to not pound too hard and break through the meat)
  • Place 2 slices of ham over each chicken breast.
  • Place slice of Swiss cheese over the ham and roll chicken up tightly.
  • Dip each chicken roll in butter, then roll in breadcrumbs. Place in Instant Pot, seam side down (the more snug the better). 
  • If you don't want your chicken sitting in broth, you may want to use the included steamer rack so the chicken isn't sitting on the bottom of the pot.  
  • Pour remaining butter over the chicken and add chicken broth in the cracks between the chicken breasts. 
  • Place lid on Instant Pot and move tab to "sealing". Press "manual" and set time to 8 minutes, on high pressure. Allow to naturally release for 5 minutes before moving tab to "venting".
  • Carefully remove chicken from Instant Pot and serve.
