Keto Creamy Chicken with Bacon & Cheese

My recipe for Creamy Crockpot Chicken with Bacon & Cheese was one of the very first recipes I posted when I started this Keto/Low Carb journey several months ago, and it is very popular on Pinterest. It’s been a while since I’ve made it because I’ve been so busy creating new recipes. So, I thought I’d prepare it for lunch today in my Instant Pot.

The past couple of weeks I’ve made several recipes in my Instant Pot, and I’m really starting to love it. It does make it so easy to prepare a quick meal in one pot with all the flavor and tenderness of slow cooking all day. I love that it offers so many different functions and allows you to saute or sear in the same pot. I made this for lunch today and it was so yummy!

If you are looking to purchase an Instant Pot, there are tons of good deals on Amazon. I have this one.

Instant Pot Creamy Chicken with Bacon Cheese {Keto Friendly}

Servings: 8
Author: Kasey Trenum


  • 4-6 boneless skinless chicken breasts (depending on how many people you are serving)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ½ tsp poultry seasoning
  • ½ tsp rosemary
  • 1/8 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • 6 pieces of bacon
  • cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1 cup cheese
  • 3 pieces of bacon crumbled
  • salt/pepper to taste


  • Find the Crock Pot version of this recipe HERE.
  • Turn electric pressure cooker to saute and cook 6 pieces of bacon until crispy.
  • Remove 1/2 of the bacon.
  • Add chicken and next 6 ingredients to Instant Pot.
  • Lock lid and set to manual high pressure for 11 minutes.
  • Once the cycle is complete, allow a Natural Pressure Release for 6 minutes then quick release. I place a towel over the valve to release the steam when I release the pressure.
  • Carefully open Instant Pot after the pin drops.
  • Using 2 forks, shred chicken.
  • Turn Instant Pot to Saute and add heavy whipping cream and cream cheese.
  • Stir well to combine.
  • Sprinkle 3/4 tsp Xanthan Gum on top and allow to simmer for a few minutes until the sauce begins to thicken.
  • Turn Instant Pot off.
  • Sprinkle cheese and bacon on top and allow a few minutes for the cheese to melt.
  • Enjoy!
