Whole30 and Gluten Free Instant Pot Shredded Chicken

IMG_7893Whole30 Compliant and Gluten Free

I literally make this while doing meal prep each week.  I also keep bags of it in my freezer.  It is perfect to throw into a soup, salad, taco, etc.


  • 3 Chicken Breasts – I get mine delivered from Butcher Box
  • 2 cups of Whole30 compliant chicken broth or stock
  • 1T of coarse salt
  • 1T of peppercorns
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Variations- adding chili powder and cumin to broth, adding Italian Seasoning and garlic cloves


  1. Put chicken broth or stock into Instant Pot
  2. Add salt, peppercorns, bay leaf, and seasonings
  3. Add chicken breasts
  4. Set on steam setting for 35 minutes
  5. Remove chicken breasts.
  6. Shred with fork
  7. Store in glass container to use during the week or put in freezer.  If I freeze it, I usually ladle in a bit of stock to keep it moist when it defrosts and re-heats.
  8. Strain and use the extra stock for other cooking projects.  I usually put it in ice cube trays and freeze them.  It is now an infused stock.
