  • Mixing Bowl
  • Knife
  • Food Processor
  • Aluminum foil
  • Trivet
  • Instant Pot


  • 3 chicken breasts
  • 4 ounces cream cheese half a brick
  • 3.5 tablespoons Everything but the bagel seasoning divided
  • 1 teaspoon Red pepper flakes


  • Mix together your cream cheese, red pepper flakes, and 1.5 tablespoon of everything but the bagel seasoning.
  • Score each chicken breast about eight times. Depends on how large your breast is.
  • Between each score, add in your cream cheese mixture.
  • Take 2 tablespoons of your everything but the bagel seasoning and add to your food processor. If you do not have one, you can use the back of your spoon or a knife to create a finer texture. Add on top of each chicken breast.
  • Create a boat with your aluminum foil with the chicken breast inside each one.
  • Add one and a half cups of water to your instant pot. Place the trivet inside and add each chicken breast covered in aluminum foil to your instant pot. If you have a tall trivet, you can add that in for the third breast to rest on. If not, they can lay on top of one another.
  • Cook for 18 minutes on high pressure. Once the chicken is done, allow them to naturally release for about five minutes, followed by a manual release by pulling the valve to release pressure.
  • Insert a food thermometer to make sure that each chicken breast is 165°.
  • You can top each chicken with a little bit more seasoning, or chicken flakes. I like to eat it with a side of salad, a baked potato, or macaroni salad! Enjoy!
