Instant Pot Shredded Chicken Breast


Obviously, one of the most sizzling presents last Christmas was the Instant Pot (aff link). In case you didn’t occur to discover one of these under the tree, it’s a weight cooker that can make essentially everything – meat, poultry, soups and stews, rice, even oats – in record time. Even better, it’s programmable, so you can stack up to the pot and set it to have your feast on the table whenever in the following 24 hours.

In this way, since such a significant number of individuals out there are currently the pleased proprietors of gleaming new Instant Pots, I figured they could all utilization some new formulas for things to make in them. Furthermore, here’s an incredible one to begin with Flavorful Instant Pot Chicken Breast.

The weight cooker is an extraordinary method to cook chicken. When you cook a chicken in the stove, you generally need to watch out for it to shield it from drying out. Be that as it may, a weight cooker just seals in the juices, so it generally turns out clammy and delicate.

Furthermore, this specific Instant Pot chicken dish couldn’t be less demanding. You should simply put the chicken in the pot, season it, pour in some stock to give the essential fluid, seal it up, and push the “poultry” catch. Truly, that is it!

At the point when the valve discharges, the chicken will be sufficiently delicate to shred with a couple of forks, so you can utilize it in any formula that calls for destroyed chicken. Or on the other hand, you can simply cut it up and make some flawless, delicious chicken sandwiches. The decision is yours.

Instant Pot Shredded Chicken Breast


1.5-2 lbs boneless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup chicken broth


  1. Place chicken in your Instant Pot
  2. Season both sides of chicken with garlic salt and pepper.
  3. Pour in chicken broth.
  4. Seal Instant Pot, making sure your valve is set to sealing. Press the poultry button. Once done, wait for Instant Pot to depressurize on its own, known as a natural release.
  5. NOTE: If you are wanting to use the “quick release” method, I suggest adding 5 extra minutes to the Instant Pot cooking timer. If you do this, once the timer goes off, you can switch your valve to “venting” which will cause a faster release.
  6. Place chicken on a cutting board and shred with 2 forks, OR slice chicken breast.
