bbq chicken sliders tips and tricks

There isn’t really much to this recipe, but if you want to make it even better, here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind:

  1. Use chicken broth. Instead of using water to pressure cook the chicken, use chicken broth. It will make your chicken even more tender and juicy.
  2. Always natural release. When the time is up, allow the pot to naturally release for about 10 minutes. This will ensure your chicken doesn’t come out tough and hard to shred.
  3. Use honey BBQ sauce. For a sweeter more flavorful slider, use a BBQ sauce with honey. I use Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue Sauce.

Step 3: Release the Pressure

I recommend allowing the Instant Pot to naturally release the pressure for about 10 minutes. Then, manually release the pressure once finished cooking. Remove the chicken from the instant pot and pour out the water.

  1. Booyah! Time to bust out my Instant Pot. I bought it like a year ago, but I never used it. I think this is the perfect recipe to break it in.

  2. These sure look amazing. I love sliders. I’ll have to try these ones out. I’m sure they’re delicious.

  3. My wife and I love to buy sliders because they’re great as snacks. It seems like a good idea to make them at home instead. We can also serve it to guests.
