BBQ Chicken Sandwich by @thehungrypetite

BBQ Pulled Chicken Sandwich Recipe

by: Iris (@thehungrypetite)


For the recipe, I used:

  • 2lbs chicken thigh

  • 1 cup chicken stock or water

BBQ sauce:

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • ½ cup diced celery

  • ½ cup ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce

  • ½ tablespoon salt

  • ½ tablespoon pepper

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced


  1. Mix all the BBQ sauce ingredients together in a separate bowl.

  2. Pour the chicken stock or water into the instant pot. Place the chicken thighs on top of the stock or water. Pour the BBQ sauce on top of the thighs. Do not stir. This will keep the stock or water on the bottom of the pot so the instant pot comes to pressure. Place the lid on the pot. Press manual and set to 15 minutes.

  3. Let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes. Take the lid off and sauté for an additional 3-5 minutes if you want to thicken the sauce. The chicken thighs will be very soft and tender, so you can use two forks to shred the chicken (or in my case, I used a pair of chopsticks).

  4. Serve on Martin’s Famous Potato Rolls, and enjoy!
