Chicken cooked in the Instant Pot, shredded and made into a delicious sandwich…
Crispy and delicious chicken sandwich made effortlessly. For making sandwich, I’ve been pressure cooking boneless chicken breast in the Instant Pot for 10 minutes. Chicken is cooked so well that it can be shredded. Add your favorite sauce to the shredded chicken, cook for a couple of minutes.
Spread the shredded chicken over the bread slice, top with salad greens, cheese, smear the outside of the bread slices with butter and grill till golden and crispy.
This is now my most favorite chicken sandwich, love the crispiness and the delicious sandwich.
