If there is one flavor of the summer I really miss the rest of the year, it is that wonderful combination of smoke, heat, and sweet that is barbecue chicken. Nothing totally imitates the taste the grill gives. But, you can utilize a simple tool and a few important ingredients to make outstanding barbecue chicken with a plus side: this stuff is fall apart tender. Say hello to this week's recipe, Instant Pot barbecue chicken. The Instant Pot not only makes fall-apart-tender chicken, but it does it in less than 30 minutes. Throw in a sugar-free barbecue sauce (stevia only!) and a few important spices and you've got a meal which just may stick around for the warmer months ahead.
I like to pair this chicken with baked sweet potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts for a dose of healthy carbohydrates and all the micro nutrients. But be creative! It'd go great with a spicy, vinegar-y slaw and sweet corn, too. Just try to channel your inner-summer and you'll be on the right path.
Note: You do need an Instant Pot to make this Instant Pot Barbecue Chicken. If you don't have an Instant Pot, you could use a crock pot/slow cooker, but be sure to sear the meat in a pan, first.
