  • After about 8-10 minutes the pot will come to full pressure. Then the timer countdown will begin.
  • Once the timer is off, let the pot rest without disturbing for about 10 minutes and the pressure release naturally.
  • After 10 minutes, carefully open the valve and let the remaining steam release completely.
  • Once all the steam is gone and it is easy to handle, using two forks, shredded chicken. Alternatively, take the chicken breast out, shred and toss it back in the remaining juice in the pot.

Notes

  • For Frozen Chicken Breast, cook on high pressure for 12 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of natural pressure release. 
  • For Chicken thighs, cook for 12 minutes with a quick pressure release.
  • The amount of liquid(sauce ) at the end was just enough. Use only the amount of sauce you need, rest you can just discard.
