For as long as I can remember, I’ve been cooking chicken in the crock-pot. Whether you choose to use a slow-cooker or a pressure cooker, the process is the same. Drop the chicken in the pot and then chop or shred the chicken when it’s done cooking. Making shredded chicken is not a complicated thing and there is no fancy skill required, but having shredded chicken on hand is a spectacularly convenient thing for countless recipes.
I’m sharing both my crock-pot and pressure cooker methods for cooking chicken today. I finally got my hands on a pressure cooker (I bought this 7-in-1 Instant Pot) a couple months ago and I’ve been pressure-cooking everything and anything I can. I’ve discovered that it is possible to cook chicken that is falling apart and perfectly shreddable in just 15 MINUTES!
I’m already completely hooked on the convenience of using a pressure cooker. I’ve been testing a number of our favorites recipes in the pressure cooker over the past month and I can hardly wait to share the pressure cooking recipes with you.
