Do you have one of those recipes that is your go-to recipe? That is what this Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sandwich recipe is for me. It used to be, that I could plan way ahead, even cook it overnight and have it ready for Sunday after church. But, here lately, I keep forgetting to even put anything into my slow cooker early enough to have it ready for dinner. Crazy I know, being that I’m the slow cooker gal.
But…. thankfully, I got an Instant Pot for my birthday this past year and I can now fix that problem. When I get to 4:00 p.m. and realize I never thought about dinner yet again, I can grab that chicken from Zaycon Foods that I keep in the freezer and have a delicious meal in 40 minutes in the Instant Pot (plus heat up time).
