Three Ingredient Pulled Chicken Sliders


Use a pressure cooker or Instant Pot® to make this easy recipe. It is the perfect prep-ahead meal for busy weeknights and is extremely versatile. It can be served over rice or baked potato and is delicious in hotdog rolls or slider buns.


  • 3 chicken thighs, skinless
  • 3 chicken breasts, skinless
  • 30 ml (2 tbsp) Mexican spice, enchilada mix or fajita spice mix
  • 250 ml (1 cup) chicken stock
  • 1 jar salsa
To serve 
  • 1 large ripe avocado, peeled, stoned and sliced
  • 1 spring onion
  • Lime or lemon wedges
  • Chilli or pickled jalapeño s
  • Coleslaw mix
  • 4 bread rolls
Fresh coriander to garnish


  1. Toss the chicken pieces in the spice mix and set aside to marinate for 20 minutes.
  2. Layer the chicken stock, salsa and then the chicken in a pressure cooker or Instant Pot®, do not stir. (This will prevent the burn notice on the Instant Pot®). Seal the lid and set timer to 20 minutes.
  3. When the time is up, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before opening the venting valve.
  4. Once open remove the chicken pieces from the liquid and reduce the liquid by pressing the “sauté” button on the Instant Pot® and simmering the sauce until reduced and thickened.
  5. On a chopping board shred the chicken using two forks. Add the shredded chicken back into the reduced sauce and toss to coat.
  6. To serve, lightly toast the bread rolls. Prepare the avocado and place other accompaniments in bowls for everyone to make their own slider.
