My husband loved this Shredded BBQ Cream Cheese Chicken. We ate ours on Hawaiian sub rolls, and he swears it tasted like a Mcrib from McDonalds. How I’m not sure when it uses chicken thigh, sugar free Ray’s BBQ Sauce, and cream cheese. This Instant Pot Shredded BBQ Cream Cheese Chicken is easy and delicious, though.

Ingredients: 

  • 2 lbs Chicken breast or Chicken Thighs (I used thighs)
  • 1 cup of water
  • ¾ cup of Ray’s sugar free barbecue sauce
  • 4 oz cream cheese

Instructions: 

  • 1. Add water and chicken to the pot. Cover and set valve to “sealing.” 
  • 2. Press manual and set the timer to 12 minutes. When the pressure cooker beeps you can do a quick release by pressing the valve to “venting.” (You can also let natural release for about 10 minutes if your not in a rush. )
  • 3. Remove the chicken and place on a cutting board. Shred the chicken. 
  • 4. Drain all the water out of the pot. Add the shredded chicken back into the pot. Add in cream cheese and BBQ sauce. Stir and let the cream cheese melt and coat the chicken. 
  • 5. Serve chicken on sandwiches, rolled up in tortillas, on pizza, or on salad greens.
