Instant Pot 30 Minute Barbecue Chicken

This Instant Pot barbecue chicken is SO EASY and SO TASTY! It's finished in 30 minutes and made with all whole ingredients.


3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Spice Rub
  • 1/2 tsp ea: chili powder, garlic powder, & kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp ea: ground pepper, dry mustard, & turmeric
  • 1/2 C ketchup
  • 2 Tbsp molasses
  • 1/4 C minced onion
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce


  1. Turn on the Instant Pot to Saute and heat until the screen reads “HOT”.
  2. Mix together the spice rub ingredients. Pat the chicken dry with a paper towel and sprinkle half of the spice mixture on one side of the chicken. Once the Instant Pot is hot, add a tablespoon of ghee or oil, and place the chicken in the hot pot with the spiced side down. Sprinkle the rest of the spice mixture on the un-spiced side of the chicken.
  3. Brown the chicken for 2 minutes on each side. While the chicken is browning, mix together the sauce ingredients. Once the chicken has browned on both sides, pour in 1/4 C of water and scrape any stuck pieces from the bottom of the pot. Immediately pour the sauce on top of the chicken. DON’T STIR!
  4. Cover the Instant Pot and cook for 8 minutes on high pressure.
  5. Quick release the pressure and shred the chicken in the pot with two forks.
  6. Serve and enjoy!
