Shred Chicken Breasts:
Place chicken breasts on a chopping board, then check internal temperature at its’ thickest part with an accurate food thermometer. With two forks, shred chicken, then let them cool to room temperature. You can use your desired dressing & seasoning to spice up the shredded chicken. If so, skip Step 3 & 4 below.
*Note: The USDA recommends 165°F (74°C) as the safe internal temperature for cooked chicken. If the temperature is off by more than 10°F, quickly place the chicken breasts back in the Instant Pot Pressure Cooker. Close the lid, then let the residual heat in Instant Pot cook the chicken breasts for 1 – 2 more minutes. If not, let the chicken rest until it reaches 165°F (74°C). For reference, our chicken jumped to 165°F (74°C) after resting for 3 minutes.
