Crazy Easy Instant Pot BBQ Chicken

CRAZY Easy BBQ Chicken

I’m a working mom so simple is WHERE IT’S AT when it comes to dinner time! Unless I get home early or it is the weekend I just don’t have time to chase kids and prep dinner. The Instant Pot has significantly changed dinner time. You can make this same recipe in the crock pot but the chicken just is not as tender NOR is it done as quickly! 

1 lb chicken
1/2 jar BBQ Sauce
1 cup water

1.  Add 1 cup water to Instant Pot
2. Add chicken to IP
3. Cover with 1/2 jar of BBQ sauce (or more!)
4. Press poultry. 15 minutes should show up on the screen. If chicken is frozen add 5 minutes!
5. Manually release pressure when timer goes off, remove chicken to shred and add back to IP to soak in BBQ sauce for about 5 minutes. 

We ate ours solo but it would make a delicious BBQ chicken sandwich! My daughter ate all of her chicken – which says a lot because she is SO picky …. My husband was working late so I served with green beans and mandarin oranges – kid-friendly, kid-approved!
