    Recipe Notes

    If you have an Instant Pot, place chicken breasts and 1 cup water in the insert.  Lock lid, set valve to sealing and program for manual-high-15 minutes.  NPR 10 minutes.  Remove from instant pot and shred in a stand mixer or with two forks.

    If you don't have an Instant Pot, bring 3 quarts of water to a boil in a medium saucepan.  Add chicken breasts.  Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink.  Remove chicken and shred in a stand mixer or with two forks.

    If you can't find 100% whole grain breadcrumbs with no high fructose corn syrup, you can easily make your own: for each 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs you need, place one slice bread in the blender or food processor.  Process until crumbly.  These are easily made ahead and frozen for when you want to use them (I save the heels of the bread loaves and make breadcrumbs from them, and keep the breadcrumbs in the freezer.)

    Variation: add 2 cups whole grain noodles, cooked and drained to the chicken for a heartier meal.
