Notes

To cook the chicken in the instant pot, add 1 cup water to instant pot.  Add the trivet that came with your instant pot.  Add chicken breasts.  Lock lid; set valve to sealing.  Program for manual-high, and 22 minutes.  When cook time ends, carefully move valve to venting to release steam.  Remove chicken and shred with two forks or place chicken in the bowl of a stand mixer.  Fit mixer with mixing paddle and turn to speed 1.  When chicken is shredded, turn mixer off.  (About 30 seconds-1 minute.)
