Instructions

Slow Cooker

  • Pour water or broth into your slow cooker. Add chicken breasts and cover with seasonings. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
  • Remove and add to a bowl and shred with 2 forks. Add in some of the liquid from the slow cooker to keep it moist.

Instant Pot/Pressure Cooker

  • Pour water or broth into your pressure cooker. Add chicken breasts and cover with seasonings. Close lid and make sure it is locked and valve is set to sealed. Select 'Poultry' and cook on high pressure for 10-17 minutes. Amount of time will depend on how thick your breasts are. Let pressure release naturally or turn valve to venting for quick pressure release.
  • Remove and add to a bowl and shred with 2 forks. Add in some of the liquid from the the pot to keep it moist.
