I make this Instant Pot shredded buffalo chicken very often my house. My hot buffalo sauce is incredible, therefore I am usually making this meal last minute when I need something to make easy and quick. My entire family loves it. The shredded buffalo chicken is healthy, lean, and tastes AMAZING! So why not?
You just throw the ingredients in the Instant Pot and cook it for 10 minutes.
Next, you shred the chicken with a fork. The chicken breasts just fall apart so the shredding is very easy. The chicken will naturally absorb most of the liquid. You will then put it on the sauté setting for just a few minutes to cook out any remaining liquid until the chicken absorbs any lingering sauce… about 5 minutes.
I make a lot of meal prep freezer meals for my husband to take to work. This is one of his favorite entrees. It freezes really well. You can double the batch and use half for a meal and save half in the freezer. Easy peasy!
