Ingredients Needed For Our Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches Recipe:
- Boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Brown sugar
- Ground black pepper
- Smoked paprika
- Garlic Powder
- Onion powder
- Chicken broth (water can do as well)
- BBQ sauce
- Hamburger buns
How To Make Our Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwiches Recipe:
Begin by placing the sliced onions in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
Then, place chicken breasts on top of the sliced onions.
Now, in a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, salt, black pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and onion powder.
After that is all mixed, sprinkle the seasonings on top of the chicken breasts.
Then, pour the chicken broth as close to the side of the bowl as possible to try and avoid washing the seasonings off of the chicken.
Now, pour 1 cup of the BBQ sauce over top of the seasoned chicken breast.
When all of that is done, place the lid on the Instant Pot, secure it, and turn the valve to the SEALING position.
To get it started, press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOK and set the timer for 20 minutes
After the timer runs out, let the Instant Pot natural release for 5 minutes and then turn the valve to the VENTING position to release the remaining pressure.
Now remove the lid from the Instant Pot and take the chicken out to shred it. You can use two forks or throw it into your stand mixer with a paddle attachment to speed things up a bit.
Once all of the chicken is shredded, add it back into the Instant Pot and stir it into the remaining juices.
Now just serve it on some hamburger buns, pour a little more BBQ sauce, and any of your other favorite toppings!
