Instant Pot Pulled BBQ Chicken
This Instant Pot Pulled BBQ Chicken is so tender, juicy and full of barbecue flavor. With just a few staple pantry ingredients, you have an easy, weeknight meal you can use in so many ways!
We loved our Instant Pot Spicy Sweet & Sour Chicken made with those frozen chicken so much that I could not WAIT to try another recipe with the other half of the bag of frozen breast! We had some potatoes to use up so I decided to try to make Pulled BBQ Chicken to top baked potatoes with.
We LOVE barbecue stuffed inside a big ol’ baked potato with all the fixin’s! It’s also great in Pulled BBQ Chicken Sandwiches, Ranch BBQ Chicken Salads, Nachos, Wraps, the possibilities are ENDLESS really! This is a must try for a quick weeknight dinner and you don’t even have to thaw the chicken! #winning
The chicken cooked up perfectly in the instant pot! We used the leftovers for our favorite BBQ nachos and we got 2 meals out of it! (EASY AND GOOD!) I am loving using frozen chicken in my instant pot and looking forward to trying so many more flavors! Have you gotten your instant pot yet? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? LOL!
