Instant Pot Shredded Chicken

IP shredded chicken

Welcome to my life, Instant Pot Shredded Chicken. I finally took the plunge and cooked meat in the Instant Pot. Guess what? It was awesome! Hands down I will make this part of my weekly routine. I only made two chicken breasts in the Instant Pot, but you could definitely make more! Once it’s cooked, shred with two forks (or a hand beater!).

A few ideas for what to do with shredded chicken:

  • add to a salad for extra protein
  • make a bowl with shredded chicken & other veggies
  • wrap it up in lettuce (tacos)
  • add to a meat sauce

The options are endless. I purposefully did not add spices to this recipe which makes it completely customizable to whatever you’re making! [Note: this recipe is whole 30 and paleo friendly!] I’m working on fast, easy dinner recipes that use shredded chicken (one coming tomorrow!). In the meantime, if you need ideas, contact me! Cheers!
