Pressure Cooker Barbeque Chicken
- 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1½ cups prepared barbeque sauce
- 1 small yellow onion, minced
- 4 garlic cloves
For best results, we recommend using:
- Season chicken with salt and place in the inner pot of a pressure cooker; add barbeque sauce, onion, and garlic. Turn chicken to coat.
- Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent to Sealing.
- Select Poultry and cook for 15 minutes on High pressure.
- Once the cooking cycle has completed allow pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then set steam vent to Venting to quick-release any remaining pressure.
- Shred chicken with two forks and stir into the sauce.
This shredded barbeque chicken can be enjoyed on its own, or as a sandwich. Make it a meal by adding a simple slaw side dish. Of course an ice cold glass of sweet tea should also be on the menu!

Love how simple this is. Next time I would add more garlic and less onion though.
Suzy Ramirez says:
followed the recipe and did everything according to the video. chicken was a little difficult to shred but still came out cooked. personally the onion and garlic alone did not add much flavor. I would suggest adding spices to the barbecue or chicken if you prefer more flavor. (:
Stacey Johnson says:
New owner and it started burning before it started to cook so I had to turn my pot off and then add water. I wish the recipe said to add water. I haven’t gotten to taste it yet. I hope the burning in the beginning doesn’t leave a bad aftertaste. Besides that, the video and the directions don’t match. That’s pretty frustrating. One says 15 mins pressure cook and 15 minutes natural release...the other says quick release after 5 mins natural release. Which is it?? I’m so confused and frustrated. I’ve never been a good cook which is why I’m trying this cooker since it’s supposed to be easier. Recipe writers have to think about ALL of the users.

This is a great alternative to sloppy joes and the like, assuming you kids like barbeque sauce (who doesn't?). Just throw it together and pile it on buns or bread. BOOM! DONE! I used Sweet Baby Ray's, but want to try this with my Carolina-style homemade sauce. Guess I'd best get to brewing!

This recipe is brilliant! I have spent hours making barbecue chicken in my slow cooker in the past (like 6 hours!), and at times has the recipe not complete in that time! The Multipot pressure cooker delivers this recipe in a mere fraction of the time and it's so good! I paired this with coleslaw on top, in a sandwich. Yum!
Katie Hason says:
This barbecue chicken is one of my favorite recipes. It's so easy, but full of flavor. The meat was especially tender too. I used to always buy the pre-cooked barbecue chicken, but now that I have this recipe I will only ever make it from scratch. Yummy!

Hands down my favorite BBQ chicken recipe! The onion and garlic added great flavor, too. I can't believe how easy it was to make. We paired it with hamburger buns to make the best pulled chicken sandwiches. This is for sure a family favorite!
