*I love to make extra enchiladas when I make these because they can be shared with others, eaten on for several days, or frozen for another meal.


Step-by-Step How to Cook Chicken in the Instant Pot

  1. Add 2 cups of water to the 6-quart Instant Pot. Insert the trivet. Add the chicken to the pot. If frozen, make sure the pieces are broken apart and not in a solid mass. 
  2. Season your chicken, if desired. 
  3. Set the Instant Pot to cook on high pressure for 20 mins for chicken thighs.
  4. After the cook time has finished, vent to release any remaining pressure. 
  5. Carefully open the lid and check the chicken’s internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer. The chicken should register 165 degrees F at the thickest part, and the thermometer should not touch the bone. 
  6. Once cool enough to handle, shred or dice as desired.
