Instant Pot Chicken is life changing. It’s a game-changer. With my ultimate guide to cooking chicken in the Instant Pot, you will be able to make awesome chicken dishes in a fraction of the time. That’s right, dinner is no longer a task to dread, but one to conquer!
Season chicken on both sides with salt and pepper.
Add 1 cup of water to the Instant Pot, insert the trivet. Place chicken on top of the trivet.
Set the Instant Pot to high pressure for about 60 seconds per ounce of chicken, plus about 10 minutes of natural release. For example, a 16-ounce chicken breast would require 16 minutes of cooking and 10 minutes of natural release. (see recipe notes for frozen chicken)
Once done, shred the chicken apart by using a fork or a blender. Enjoy with your favorite dish!
