  • Instant Pot


  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 lbs. Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, see notes
  • Salt/Pepper, to taste
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 stick celery, diced
  • 4 cups broccoli florets, about ½ lb.
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • 10.5 oz. cream of chicken soup
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • ½ cup milk
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 ½ cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Topping
  • ½ cup crushed Ritz crackers or panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • ½ teaspoon mustard powder


  • Preheat stove to 350 degrees.
  • Cut chicken into scaled-down pieces and sprinkle delicately with salt and pepper.
  • Dissolve spread in a dutch stove or enormous pot over medium warmth. Add the chicken, onions, and celery and throw to cover. Sauté for 3 minutes, until chicken is mostly done, then, at that point add the broccoli and 1 Tbsp olive oil.
  • Cook for 3-5 additional minutes, until the chicken, is cooked through. Eliminate heat.
  • Add the cream of chicken soup, sharp cream, milk, flavors, and half of the cheddar. Mix to consolidate.
  • Move to a delicately lubed 9 x 13 meal dish and top with outstanding cheddar.
  • Cover and prepare for 20 minutes. Eliminate and increment warmth to 400 degrees.
  • Consolidate the dissolved spread and Ritz saltines. Sprinkle over the dish and prepare for 8-10 minutes, until the top is brilliant brown. Eliminate and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving.
  • Serve over rice, rolls, or pureed potatoes.


  • 2 lbs. of chicken is equivalent to around 4 cups diced or 3 medium chicken bosoms.
  • Cooked chicken might be utilized in which case sauteing it isn't required. I would in any case suggest relaxing the onions/celery for around 5 minutes and the broccoli for around 3-4.
  • To skip sautéing by and large, go ahead and preclude the onions and celery and consolidate uncooked diced chicken, new broccoli, and the sauce fixings. Move to a preparing dish and heat at 375, covered, for 40 minutes. Eliminate cover and continue with adding the Ritz besting as illustrated.
  • Frozen broccoli might be utilized, defrost it first and wipe it off. Sauteing it with the chicken is discretionary as it's as of now to some extent cooked. I suggest in the event that you like exceptionally delicate broccoli.
  • ½ cup squashed Ritz = around 14 of them or ½ sleeve
