Add chicken broth and chicken breasts to the Instant Pot and secure the lip.
Turn your Instant Pot on and select the ‘Pressure Cook’ function on high. Cook for 8 minutes.
Once the timer beeps, allow natural pressure release for 10-15 minutes then quick release all remaining pressure.
Remove the cooked chicken from the Instant Pot and place in a large bowl.
With two forks, pull the chicken apart until shredded. You should find the chicken in very tender and juicy allowing it to pull apart quickly and easily. You can also use a hand mixer to break up the chicken, if needed.
Add now your favorite BBQ sauce, pineapple chunks to your now shredded chicken. Stir all ingredients until well combined.
Serve on a slider bun, on tacos and so much more! Add your favorite toppings such as cheese, cole slaw, pickles and enjoy!
