I have made a Mississippi roast before. So I was thrilled to find this recipe for Instant Pot Mississippi chicken sandwiches where you cook the meat in the Instant Pot. This was a hit. My husband love the flavor of this meat and how tender it was.
Now you make the Mississippi roast in the slow cooker and it takes 8 hours. The chicken for these Instant Pot Mississippi Chicken sandwiches is made in the Instant Pot and cooks for 20 minutes.
To cook this chicken, you place it in the Instant Pot along with some chicken broth, dry ranch dressing mix, chicken gravy mix, pepperoncini peppers, juice from the jarred pepperoncini, and butter. Then it cooks in the Instant Pot for 20 minutes, after that you do a quick release. Then shred that chicken. It should seriously just fall apart.
To serve, you place it on toasted buns with melted provolone cheese. The toasty bun is the perfect contrast for that tender, juicy chicken. Plus, the toasted bun helps hold up to the juicy chicken. Then add on some lettuce and a little mayo too. You can even add some of peppers to that sandwich if you want to.
