Easy Instant Pot Shredded BBQ Chicken

In addition to helping improve our dinner-in-less-time game, our Instant Pot has been playing a big part in allowing us to meal prep lunches each week.  We have made several kinds of shredded chicken in our Instant Pot over the last few months, and BBQ is always a favorite.  The pressure cooker function results in flavorful, juicy chicken that shreds with the lightest touch!  This week we will be enjoying this Easy Instant Pot Shredded BBQ Chicken over a bed of quinoa (also cooked in the IP) along with green beans.  YUM!
