Lime & Cilantro Chicken Instant Pot Large Family Freezer Meals | THM, Low Carb, Keto

  • Author: Jamerrill Stewart


You will need the following total ingredients to make two large family freezer meals:

  • 6 lbs of frozen chicken
  • 2 cups lime juice
  • 4 tbs minced garlic
  • 1 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cups olive oil
  • salt/pepper as desired
  • divided equally into two large gallon freezer bags
In each labeled one-gallon freezer bag combined the following:
  • 3 lbs of frozen chicken
  • 1 cups lime juice
  • 2 tbs minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup of chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup olive oil
  • salt/pepper as desired




  • Run cold water over the outside of your frozen gallon freezer bag to gently defrost the frozen food from the bag (enough to dump it out and release the food from the side of the frozen bag). Place in Instant Pot. Place lid on pressure cooker and seal the valve. Cook on manual high pressure for 25 minutes. Let pressure naturally release.
  • *Note the internal temp of your large family Lime & Cilantro Chicken. If the internal temp is not reached place back in IP for 10 minutes and check again. Because of the variables with pressure cooking, it’s not always a perfect science and sometimes needs additional adjustments. The USDA recommendations a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees for poultry.



  • For the slow cooker just set out your Lime & Cilantro Chicken the night before to defrost in the refrigerator.
  • The next day pull your Lime & Cilantro Chicken out of the freezer bag. Place it in your slow cooker and cook for up to 4 hours on high and 7-8 hours on low (slow cooker times may vary so always check the internal temperature to complete doneness).
