Release remaining pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Transfer chicken to a bowl and shred.

  3. Select Sauté function. Add cream cheese, Sriracha, ranch dressing, and chile-garlic sauce to the pot. Stir in shredded chicken. Add Cheddar cheese a little at a time, constantly stirring until melted and all ingredients are well combined. Select Keep Warm function until ready to serve. Garnish with green onions.
