I have not found a single recipe that I don’t love in my Instant Pot! Now, I haven’t ventured to do any super tricky ones, but as a working mom – simple is key! I am constantly looking for ways to make new dishes with few ingredients. My monthly meal plans are only a success because I can use some ingredients over multiple recipes. Stay tuned for my March meal plan because I will also be including a shopping list!

Even though I make simple recipes, there is usually plenty to go around. I’m not a fan of taking sandwiches to work because they are boring. Usually my recipes serve about six, or leftovers for smaller families. You can always double them if you need! I wish I would have doubled this recipe because there were not enough meatballs for leftovers. Next time I will know!


2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
vegetable oil
1 t salt
1 tsp minced garlic
2 T buffalo sauce
4 T butterinstant pot buffalo chicken meatballs



  1. Mix shredded chicken, bread crumbs, salt and garlic together in a bowl.
  2. Form 2 inch meatballs by pressing the ingredients firmly together. instant pot buffalo chicken meatballs
  3. Add vegetable oil to Instant Pot and click Saute.
  4. Slowly add the meatballs in with tongs, turning until most sides are brown.
  5. It is okay if they kind of fall apart!
  6. While they are cooking, melt butter and buffalo sauce together in the microwave.
  7. After meatballs are browned, add buffalo sauce/butter to the instant pot and stir to combine.
  8. If you prefer more spicy, add more buffalo sauce. Less spicy, add more butter. Personally I would add more sauce AND butter to create more of a sauce. You can also plate the meatballs and top with the sauce AFTER they come out of the Instant Pot. instant pot buffalo chicken meatballs

Note: You could also make these in a pan on the stove-top! Don’t shy away from this just because you haven’t joined the Instant Pot society!
