Health Benefits Of Chicken

Did your parents ever give you chicken soup when you had a cold? Mine did and there’s a reason why.

Chicken is rich in carnosine. Carnosine is a compound that minimised inflammation and helps reduce that stuffy, congested feeling in your nose and throat.

There are so many fantastic health benefits to eating chicken and here are a few:

  • Chicken in rich in protein. It’s a fantastic source of lean, low fat protein which helps to build muscle and maintain a healthy weight level. 
  • Phosphorus. Chicken is rich in the essential mineral Phosphorus which is important for your teeth, bones and central nervous system.
  • Chicken contains selenium which supports the thyroid hormone, metabolism and immune function of the body. Therefore chicken is a great food to eat when following a diet such as Weight Watchers
  • Rich in Vitamin B6 and the B-vitamin Niacin, chicken can help not only boost metabolism for managing a healthy weight, it will also help guard against cancer
  • Chicken is great for preventing bone loss, helps build healthy tissue and promotes good eye health. 

Ingredients Needed For Cheesy Ranch Chicken

  • 1-2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • (2) 1 oz packets of ranch seasoning
  • 8 oz block of cream cheese
  • 1/2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 C. chicken broth
  • Salt & pepper
  • 10 oz package of rice cauliflower, cooked according to package direction

How To Make Cheesy Ranch Chicken In The Instant Pot

Place the chicken breast in the bottom of the instant pot and season with salt & pepper.

Add the cream cheese, ranch seasoning and chicken broth over the top of the chicken breasts.

Place the lid on the instant pot and press the manual setting. Set the timer to 10 minutes making sure the quick release valve is closed.

Once the timer has gone off after cooking then do a quick release.


Carefully open the lid.

Remove the chicken and shred using a fork and knife.

Shredding chicken in the instant pot is pretty easy to do and I find using two forks the easiest way to do this. 

Place the chicken back into the instant pot and stir in the shredded cheese.

Garnish with more shredded cheese if desired and serve over cauliflower rice as a low carb option or noodles.
