Transfer the meat to a resealable plastic bag (or keep it in the original airtight packaging). Set the meat into a bowl or dish in the sink and fill the vessel with cool water. Change the water every 30 minutes to ensure that it stays cold enough to keep the meat in a safe temperature zone. If you need it thawed in less than an hour, try running a slow trickle of room-temperature water into the bowl until it's thawed completely.
How long does it take to cook chicken breast?
Set your oven to 450 degrees and you'll only need 15 to 20 minutes to bake chicken breast through.

How do you convert slow cooker recipes to an Instant Pot?
First, lower the meat-cooking time. If the meat dish cooks in 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high in the slow cooker, it will cook in 25-30 minutes in the Instant Pot. Make sure the Instant Pot setting reads "sealing" and not "venting" to ensure it's cooked properly. If you're cooking meat from frozen in an Instant Pot, just add 5 or 10 more minutes to the total cook time until it's done. Don't forget that Instant Pots need more liquid to function properly, so if your recipe doesn't already call for at least a cup of liquid (such as broth or water), add it.
