One of the things we absolutely LOVE about the Instant Pot is that there are SO many amazing recipes we can use it for AND when we cook with the instant pot, we are normally using a lot of whole food ingredients, which are essential for a healthy diet.

If you're a beginner cooking with an Instant Pot, don't be nervous. Read the instruction manual that comes with your pressure cooker and know that it is so much easier to cook with an Instant Pot than the old conventional pressure cookers.

There is nothing to be intimidated about...just make sure you read the manual and take care to follow the instructions. You'll be cooking up meals in your Instant Pot in no time at all.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  1. Place chicken breasts in pressure cooker. Sprinkle seasoning over chicken. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Quick release.
  2. Shred chicken with fork. Tip: Use a hand mixer for quick and easy shredding.
  3. Pour buffalo sauce over chicken. Mix well. Add more if you prefer a spicy and saucy filling.
  4. Serve hot on hamburger buns or on flat bread.


Chicken could also be served on rice, lettuce wraps, or tortilla wraps.

While chicken breasts are a lean option, chicken thighs are moister and keep better in the slow cooker.

For a smoky flavor, add about 1 teaspoon of liquid smoke to the sauce mixture. Or add a smoky flavor seasoning, to taste.

that looks good - if you double this I assume you would double the sauce also? this sounds like it would do good in the freezer to pull out for individual sandwiches or over rice for a quick lunch

Are the chicken breasts frozen?

I used refrigerated. I imagine frozen could be used with a little additional cooking time.
