Shredding It!

Shredded chicken has never been easier.

Most Instant Pot recipes require one cup of some type of liquid.  I have always used a variety of sauces as my liquid. This recipe features teriyaki sauce.

Instant Pots can cook meat from both a frozen or unthawed state quickly. I normally just cook meat from frozen since I usually forget to take it out to unthaw in the morning.

For this recipe, I poured one cup of teriyaki sauce into the pot, added three frozen chicken breasts and cooked on high pressure for 20 minutes. I then did a quick release (flip the button to vent and all the steam releases within a few minutes) and opened up the lid to three perfectly cooked chicken breasts.

This is where it gets good . . .

Use a hand mixer to shred the chicken.  It finely shreds the chicken in seconds and mixes in the excess teriyaki sauce keeping the meat moist.

I normally eat the shredded chicken on salad without even bothering to add salad dressing.  However, it can be also be eaten alone, on rice or with anything else you wish.

I used this recipe as a guide but made a number of changes as described above.

  2. Wow, I didn’t know you can cook things from frozen, I really need to get my hands on one of these! I often find that University and work life catch up to me and more often than not cereal is the only meal I can whip up within a matter of minutes. I also love how you can use the hand mixer to shred your chicken! However, I learnt from someone that chicken tends to fly EVERYWHERE. This is great, I am glad you are enjoying it!
