  • Season your chicken thighs use the salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  • Put the trivet rack in the Instant Pot.
  • Next, lay the chicken thighs in the Instant Pot. 
  • Put the lid on the pot, lock and seal it and set the cooking time to 13 minutes manual high pressure.
  • After the chicken has finished cooking, use quick release to release the pressure.
  • Remove the chicken thighs, and shred with two forks or, my favorite way of shredding chicken is by using the hand mixer. 
  • Use your chicken within three days, or use an airtight container (or foodsaver) to store the chicken in the freezer.
  • Enjoy!
