Can’t stop, won’t stop using my Instant Pot! And apparently neither can you guys because so many of you have been enjoying The Paleo AIP Instant Pot Cookbook since it released a couple days ago. It includes over 140 AIP compliant and Paleo Instant Pot Recipes ranging from soups to BBQ Chicken and even desserts.
I planned my meals this week from the cookbook and wanted to make a blog recipe for you too. One of my favorite recipes from the book, Swedish Meatballs with Mushroom Gravy, which I shared with you as a preview recipe.
You’re going to love this quick and easy Instant Pot Shredded Chicken with Almond Butter Satay too! The Almond Butter Satay sauce really flavors the basic shredded chicken which is also combined with fresh cilantro and green onions! I recommend serving it over cauliflower rice or with a light crunchy salad such as a jicama and carrot slaw!
I’ve used a variety of Instant Pot models – they are so affordable now – and they last years!
How to make Instant Pot Shredded Chicken
Add chicken breasts and thighs as well as bone broth to your Instant Pot insert. Sprinkle sea salt evenly on chicken. Seal the lid and press the “Poultry” or “Pressure Cook” setting to cook for 20 minutes.
When the timer is up, manually release the pressure and transfer chicken to a large cutting board. Using two forks, shred the chicken well.

What would you pair, eat this with?
I would definitely add greens to your plate like sauteed kale. You don’t need to eat it in a tortilla but in lettuce wraps, it’s really delish! You can also use the chicken in an Asian-inspired skillet with onion, garlic, mushrooms, carrots and bok choy.
Oh my goodness! This dish was delicious. Kids loved it and ate it with rice and broccoli. I ate it with sauteed cabbage. Yummy!!! I only used about half the chicken that the recipe called for but I kept the sauce measurements the same. It was perfect that way. So I don’t know, I might double or 1.5 the sauce next time when I use 3.5-4lbs of meat. There weren’t any leftovers this time which made me so sad.
Oh my goodness, so good!! First time using the Instant Pot – mine does not have a poultry option which threw me off. I googled and just used the pressure cook option. Chicken came out perfect in 15 minutes! Kids devoured this meal. Thank you!
Thank you for reminding me of this recipe!! So glad the kids ate it up!
So good. So SO good. And easy! I’m already craving it tomorrow.
Ha, I love when that happens! Enjoy, Libby!
