Obviously the instant pot is the most important kitchen gadget needed to make instant pot salsa verde shredded chicken, but it is also helpful to have an electric hand mixer. Shredding chicken with an electric hand mixer is a little trick I was introduced to on pinterest and it is a GAME CHANGER. When the chicken is done cooking you just use the hand mixer to shred instead of 2 forks and it is waaaayy easier.
This recipe is easily Whole30 compliant if you check the ingredients in the salsa verde. If all of the ingredients are Whole30 compliant, then you are good to go! I added an extra chopped onion to the recipe for extra flavor, but if you were in a rush while cooking, then you could leave it out. This instant pot salsa verde shredded chicken recipe is so simple you will want to be making it every week!
