If you love slow cooked barbecue chicken then you will definitely love this recipe as it creates the same juicy, flavorful dish in a fraction of the time. Raw chicken breasts are loaded into the slow cooker with a homemade barbecue sauce and poof! In 15 minutes, you have tender chicken ready to eat. This is the perfect use for the Instant Pot!

Tools Needed:

  • Small bowl
  • Whisk or fork
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • 2 forks

Steps

1
Done

In a small bowl, whisk together the brown sugar, ketchup, dried mustard, paprika, black pepper and salt.

Add the white wine vinegar, water and worcestershire sauce to the bowl and mix. If there are slight lumps (most likely from the dried mustard powder), that is okay! They will break up as the mix cooks.

3
Done

Place the raw chicken breast in the bottom of the slow cooker and pour the homemade BBQ sauce on top of the chicken.

6
Done

Remove the chicken breast and place in a bowl. Shred the chicken with two forks.

7
Done

Leave the BBQ sauce in the Instant Pot and press the ‘Saute’ button. Allow the sauce to boil until it thickens, about 10 minutes.Pour the thickened sauce back on top of the shredded chicken and serve!
