It’s really quite simple! Directions in the link above.

  • Tip: Defrosting and cooking frozen chicken breasts in a pressure cooker is ideal for making shredded chicken but not fantastic for eating whole in my opinion.

They’ll get tender and perfect for mixing with a tasty sauce and making shredded chicken soft tacos but whole they have an interesting texture.
