For the Instant Pot
Turn the Instant pot on to saute and add the butter. As the butter melts, add the remaining sauce ingredients, stirring to combine.
Add the chicken and turn the instant pot to manual, pressure on high and place the lid on with the valve set to seal.
Set the timer for 8 minutes. Once it’s done cooking allow a natural pressure release for 10 minutes and then remove the meat and shred it using 2 forks or with a hand mixer.
Place the meat back in the pot and stir with the sauce.
