Now you are going to cook this chicken in your Instant Pot for 14 minutes. Then you allow for a natural pressure release for 8 minutes. Last you shred the chicken. Now, it’s time to eat these tacos.

To serve these tacos, place this chicken in your tortillas of choice along with the toppings you prefer. I love some cheese, lettuce, salsa, sour cream, and guacamole. Some pico de gallo would also be wonderful. This chicken is also delicious to use to make a quesadilla. Just make it the same way I make my sweet pork quesadillas and swap the pork for the chicken.
