Really yummy! I gave the recipe 4 stars because I did have to cook the frozen chicken breasts longer than the recipe stated. I would recommend 20 minutes at pressure with npr. Since I live at high altitude I had to cook it for 24 minutes. Remove the chicken to shred it. Then add enough of the broth back in to moisten the chicken before adding the bbq sauce. Great served on Hawaiian rolls with coleslaw. Read More

Please tell me that the sodium content for one serving is not 8579 mg and that the number listed is a missprint!!! I'm trying to reduce my consumption of sodium on a daily basis due to blood pressure issues and this Instant Pot Chicken has 8579mg of sodium in a single serving??? It is recommended that we all have, at the most, 2300 mg of sodium for an entire day much less 8579mg for just one serving of 'Instant Pot Chicken'. American Heart Association is recommending that sodium be reduced to 1300mg/da. I thought that it must be a misprint but......I'm sure the pkg of Hidden Ranch Seasoning/ Dip/Dressing doesn't help the sodium content either. If that is not a missprint, can you make it without all of that sodium? Please help if you can. I'd really like to try this if the sodium content is inaccurate. Read More

Fantastic flavor! I doubled the cooking time and removed the chicken from the liquid to shred. I added just enough of the liquid to moisten the shredded chicken and added sauce. I would definitely make again! Read More

Please check the sodium content again and tell us that the 8500mg of sodium is a misprint. Otherwise this recipe should never have been posted. Read More

Followed directions exactly - chicken wasn t cooked thoroughly. Added another 4 min then quick release pressure. Too much broth left. Removed chicken to shred added 1/2 c. broth back to shredded chicken before adding BBQ sauce. Taste was good but chicken was a little tough and I won t make it again. Read More

Enjoyed this and will make it again. I'm not an Instant Pot pro yet, but I will likely either reduce water and seasonings or add more chicken. I took some others' suggestions and added about half a cup of broth back when mixing with the BBQ sauce. Lastly, I didn't need to use as much BBQ sauce as called for, but overall, this was super easy and tasty. Thank you! Read More
