Instant Pot Shredded Chicken (and Condiment Potatoes)

Shredded chicken and condiment potatoes h

This is a great basic shredded chicken recipe to have on hand for when you have either a sale on chicken breasts or the forethought to prep your food for an entire week.

I use this chicken for so much! On the night I make it, I mix some with bottled barbeque sauce and make sandwiches. Serve this with the yummy condiment potatoes also listed below.

Then save the rest for enchiladas, stir-fries, or chicken salad. Store in the fridge for a week. Otherwise, keep in the freezer in a freezer-safe bag.

Ingredients

  • 2.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp paprika

Instructions

  • Add the chicken breasts, spices and chicken stock to the bowl of your Instant pot. Arrange the chicken breasts so that they are spread out in an even layer.
  • Cover and set the pressure cooker lid valve to “sealing.” Pressure cook on high for 10 minutes, followed by a 5-minute natural release, followed by a quick release to release whatever pressure remains.
  • Remove the lid and use two forks to shred the chicken. Give it a good toss with the remaining juices in the pressure cooker.
  • Serve the chicken while it’s hot or transfer it to a sealed container (like a freezer baggie) and refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.

Notes

  • Don’t worry about getting exactly 2.5lbs of chicken. The recipe works for anything between 2 and 3 lbs.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb potatoes diced
  • 1/4 cup condiment
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 425. Cover a baking sheet with parchment.
  • Clean and dice your potatoes. In a large bowl or on your baking sheet, combine all ingredients and spread evenly on the sheet.
  • Roast for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

Notes

  • If your condiment already has oil in it (ex. pesto), then don’t add any more. If you’re using salsa or something without oil, then mix it in.
  • Please note that the nutritional info is off on this one since I don’t know what condiment you’re using.
