    This turned out well except the tomatillos they used just have about 100x more water in them than mine. I went with a half cup of water because I knew my pressure cooker wouldn’t work with less, and I still ended up with a very thick product.

    Excellent. Would also make a great filling for enchiladas which I plan to test out soon

    Good recipe I’ve used green salsa when I can’t get tomatillos. I like to sauté the chicken first to get some good crispy flavor bits in the pan before pressure cooking everything.

    This had a nice flavor but wasn't spicy at all. I'll use some hotter peppers next time.

    Really wonderful. So flavorful and a little spicy. I made these a few months ago and I used the meat to make tacos for my daughter. For me I scooped some in a bowl and added sour cream and avocado on top. I froze half and just took it out tonight. It freezes really well. I used the meat for taquitos for the kids and they both loved them. My son wouldn't even try it last time. I think he's sold now.

    Directions worked perfectly. We adjusted the salt (needed a little more for our tastes), and stirred in a little sour cream before serving. Delicious, thanks!

    This is special. The best instant pot recipe I have tried. The only complaint is that there wasn’t enough of it to satisfy my family

    This was so good! I have already made it twice in the last week. I used chicken breast instead of thighs but followed the rest of the recipe.
    This was amazing! I struggle to follow recipes, using them more as a suggestion than an actual step by step, so I added some other seasonings to this and I think I bumped up the number of tomatillos and poblanos. Everyone loved it with rice and tortillas

    This turned out awesome. I used a Ninja Foodi to make this. Will definitely make it again.

    Great!! i used chicken breast, but beside that followed to a tea. Served with a side of low carb tortilla (just 1) and it was amazing!

    I made this recipe as is! Amazing! I never need to spend money at a restaurant again. Flavor was delicious, chicken was tender. This is going to be my new favorite recipe.

    First time trying it was a success, everyone raved about it for days. It’ll definitely make a reappearance soon!

    Made it exactly as written and then paired it with rice. One of the better instant pot meals I've made. Would go extremely well in a burrito/ enchilada
