  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 15 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Unlock and remove lid. Transfer chicken thighs to a plate and remove skin, bones, and any cartilage. Shred into bite-sized pieces. Add shredded chicken back to the pot. Stir in black beans and lime juice.

Cook's Notes:

You can use an onion in place of the shallots.

You can use olive or avocado oil in place of the grapeseed oil.

If using frozen chicken thighs, set cook time to 20 minutes.
