Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwich

BBQ Chicken Sandwich

Wondering what to fix for lunch or dinner? Here is a quick and easy recipe for a yummy BBQ chicken sandwich that you can make in the Instant Pot. You can also use canned chicken for an even quicker meal.

If you are not familiar with or have not used a pressure cooker, do not fear. (The memory of my mother telling me of her experience of one exploding in her kitchen kept me from using a pressure cooker for a long time). However, as most of you know, I’ve gotten over that fear and have been using the Instant Pot for many years and LOVE IT!shredded chicken instant pot settings

I have been whipping up all kinds of recipes in the Instant Pot. The shredded chicken recipe is one of my favorites and it works great for this BBQ chicken sandwich and for a lot of other recipes.  In this post, I show you how easy it is to make shredded chicken in the Instant Pot.

Cook up a batch and shred it, let it cool and then I put it in zip bags for other meals or snacks.

Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwich

Yesterday I was contemplating what I could fix for lunch. I wanted something healthy, not fast food and I didn’t have much time. Then I remembered that I had cooked up a batch of shredded chicken the other day and had it in the refrigerator. I also remembered that I had frozen some homemade BBQ sauce. So I was able to throw these sandwiches together in no time at all.
