Instant Pot All Purpose Chicken Recipe
INSTANT POT ALL-PURPOSE PULLED CHICKEN
- 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups good chicken broth
- 2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper increase to 1 teaspoon if you like a lot of pepper!
- Cut the chicken breasts in half, widthwise.
- Place the chicken breasts in the Instant Pot. Pour the chicken broth and worcestershire over the chicken. Then sprinkle with remaining seasonings.
- Close the lid and turn the pressure valve to seal. Cook on Meat/Stew or Pressure mode, on high, for 7 minutes.
- At the end of 7 minutes let the pot do a natural pressure release for 6 minutes. Turn the pot off and turn the pressure valve to vent to quick release the remaining pressure.
- Take the chicken out of the pot and let it rest for 5 minutes.
- Shred the chicken using 2 forks, clean hands OR the quickest method is with a hand mixer! If using a hand mixer, place the chicken in a large mixing bowl, and blend the chicken until it is to the shred that you like (it will go quick!).
- Pour 1 cup of the juice from the bottom of the Instant Pot over the chicken before storing in the fridge.
- Keep in the fridge for up to 4 days or according to your chicken expiration date.
