Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce is sure to impress all your Thanksgiving guests!
Don’t think you like cranberry sauce? You MUST try this!
Only EVER had canned cranberry sauce? You definitely MUST try this!
Confession… I used to HATE cranberry sauce.
2nd confession… when I say I used to HATE cranberry sauce, it’s kind of fabricated because the truth is I had always REFUSED to try cranberry sauce.
3rd confession… I eat this Instant Pot Cranberry sauce for days. It is so good on toast like jam, over ice cream as a topping, on pancakes and waffles, or just by the spoon full.
Pin this recipe for later!
As a child, growing up, we ALWAYS had the canned stuff. I apologize if you like canned cranberry sauce, because I don’t mean to offend you I swear but the stuff disgusts me. Something about it being so gelatinous that you can cut it into circles… and the marks on the circles that result from it being in that can. I just can’t…
Let’s get on to the good stuff…
- 1.5 lbs chicken breast frozen
- 4 small-medium sweet potatoes cleaned
- 2-3 tbsp olive oil
- 2-3 tsp seasonings of choice
- 1 cup cooking liquid water or broth
- cinnamon as potato garnish, optional
- butter as potato garnish, optional
Pour 1 cup cooking liquid, water or broth, in bottom of pressure cooker insert. Place short trivet over cooking liquid.
Remove frozen chicken breast from packaging and place on trivet. Drizzle with 1-2 T olive oil and seasoning liberally with seasonings of your choice.
Clean sweet potatoes well. Do not puncture skin.
Rub skin with 1-2 T olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place around pressure cooker insert, directly over chicken.
Close lid to pressure cooker & close vent knob. Select High Pressure cook setting and adjust cook time to 16 minutes.
When cook time is complete, quickly release remaining pressure (QPR).
Open lid of pressure cooker and feast your eyes on your just-in-time, healthy, FAST, from FROZEN Chicken and Sweet Potatoes!
Serve immediately, perhaps alongside an easy salad or quickly steamed veggies.

Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce
Serve in a variety of ways… Instant Pot Cranberry Sauce is so not limited to your turkey dinner. Try it on sandwiches, or pork chops, or fried chicken. If you’re like me, as I admitted earlier, you might want to try this over vanilla ice cream… I’ve also had it on peanut butter toast, on english muffins over cream cheese, pancakes, waffles, toast, crepes, oatmeal, yogurt…
