Do you need a quick meal for dinner time? Check out this recipe for Instant pot pulled BBQ chicken sliders! The high pressure of the instant pot makes the meat cook fast for these chicken sandwiches!

This meal is so simple! This recipe uses store-bought BBQ sauce so you don’t have to worry about measuring the garlic powder, onion powder, brown sugar, chili powder, or liquid smoke! Less mess!

 

Can I use frozen chicken breasts?

Yes! I love to cook frozen chicken in my electric pressure cooker. All you need to do is adjust the pressure cooking time to 12 minutes and the natural release time to 12 minutes. Yes, it takes a little longer, but it’s the perfect way to make dinner and all you have is frozen meat!

 

 

Can I use hamburger buns for the barbecue chicken sandwiches?

Of course! This is one of those recipes that you make based on what you have at home. You could even use hot dog buns if you realize you are out of slider buns and hamburger rolls.

If you are working on meal prep and want to make a lot of chicken, you can shred your cooked chicken with the paddle attachment on a stand mixer? Or grab some meat claws to shred the meat.
