Mexican Instant Pot Shredded Chicken (Whole30 & Slow Cooker Instructions)

Whole30 Mexican Instant pot shredded chicken is a family friendly recipe that’s only made with a few simple ingredients. It’s perfect for a low carb, Paleo chicken dinner, or Whole30 meal prep!

I was planning on making burritos or enchiladas with this Whole30 Mexican instant pot shredded chicken but it was so good it didn’t last long enough in my house. My boyfriend and I ate it right away over make-shift taco salads instead of taking the extra few minutes to wrap them up in some Paleo tortillas. It was the fast and easy dinner we wanted. Weeknight dinners usually consist of throwing what we can together to make a meal and with my Instant Pot that has become much easier.

There’s only a few ingredients you need to make this Mexican Whole30 instant pot shredded chicken. All of them are things I typically have stored in a cupboard. Meaning there were no extra grocery store trips involved. Score.

A few days after we made this, I made another batch for my Whole30 meal prep so I’d have some for the following days. It’s so simple and delicious that I couldn’t really think of a reason not to. That and I’m totally a recipe repeater. When I love something I will eat it until I can’t eat it anymore. This stuff is no exception!

I used my Instant Pot to make this but I’ve done so before in the slow cooker. I’ll include both methods in the recipe! Also, I realize that pressure cookers have been around a while but I’m brand new to the game. If you’re like me (a little behind the times) I’d suggest you invest in one. It’s a kitchen tool that I really rely on heavily. The convenience it adds to my life has made it invaluable.

In the Whole30 instant pot shredded chicken recipe, I specify to use chicken thighs. But if you only have breasts or tenders those will totally work too. I just love doing shredded chicken dishes like this with thighs because they’re so juicy. They seem to stay that way after being in the fridge for a few days more so than breasts. That could be all in my head though!
