Instant Pot Shredded Chicken Recipe

How to make this instant pot shredded chicken recipe is extremely simple. Especially when you use chicken thighs because they really fall apart when cooked properly. I use shredded chicken for so many recipes, like tacos, casseroles, pastas, sandwiches, and so much more! It’s great to make in bulk as well because you can store some in the freezer and use over a few months time for family meals and lunches. 

This instant pot shredded chicken recipe is perfect for making an abundance of family dinner and lunch recipes. I love making tacos, burritos, omelettes, sandwiches, and so much more. This flavorful recipe makes the softest most tender shredded chicken recipe. You can add whatever seasoning you want! I also like to add a half of an onion into the pot as well for maximum flavor!
