Instant Pot Dress-It-Yourself Shredded Chicken

by | May 27, 2017

After taking a cruise where I stuffed myself silly, the time has come to shed some of this excess weight. And this fantastic, dress-it yourself, shredded chicken for the Instant Pot is the PERFECT thing to help me out.

Not only does the chicken shred apart with the touch of a fork, but it becomes so juicy, tender and flavorful from JUST this base recipe that you won’t feel guilty eating it. This is some fine protein here, folks.

And if you want to dress it up, have at it! Want some BBQ sauce on it? Go for it! Want to just squeeze some lemon? Your waist will start shrinking. This will serve as a base for an amazing chicken salad, buffalo chicken dip, chicken to toss into a chicken noodle soup and more. The sky’s the limit with this one! The best part? YOU get to make it how (healthy) you want it!

Here’s How I Made It!:

Take a field trip to the supermarket and grab a few (chicken) breasts.

When you get home, try and cut off any fatty pieces off of each breast.
Add some chicken broth to the Instant Pot……and then lay in the breasts.

Add a little salt…

…and a little pepper.

Give it a stir, secure the lid and cook on high pressure.

When done, the chicken will be super tender.

SO tender, in fact, that we’ll just take a fork…

…and easily shred it apart!

Feel free to strain the chicken or to keep it with some of its juices and the broth.

Transfer the chicken to some tupperware and eat right away or save for lunch over the next few days…

…and dress it as you see fit!  BBQ sauce, Italian dressing, mayo lemon, or naked!  You can even use this as a base for a chicken salad or soup!

Any way you make it, it’s DELICIOUS and FAST!

  • 2 lbs of boneless, skinless chicken breasts (not too thin)
  • 1/3 cup of chicken broth (I used 1/2 tsp of Chicken Better Than Bouillon mixed with 1/3 cup of water but you can use 1 cup of water/broth if you’d like to as well)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper

Use this amazingly simple and delicious chicken as a base for any chicken salad, chicken soup, or BBQ pulled chicken recipe!  It’s perfect to eat without any dressing too if you’re trying to shed some weight.  It did wonders for me!

  1. Pour the broth in the Instant Pot
  2. Layer the chicken in the pot (don’t worry about using the trivet)
  3. Add the salt & pepper, and lightly stir
  4. Hit the “Poultry” button and adjust time so it’s at 17 minutes
  5. Quick release when done
  6. Shred and either retain the broth to absorb into the chicken and add whatever sauce you want OR strain the excess broth from chicken and do the same. You do NOT need to add any sauce though! It will taste delicious as is – Like a skinless rotisserie chicken!
  7. Enjoy!
