Are you tired of eating the usual Grilled Chicken Sandwich? Finding fun food that is not loaded with fat and calories is not easy. This Instant Pot Shredded Tangy BBQ Chicken Sandwich does the trick in a healthy and delicious way big time!
This Instant Pot Shredded Tangy BBQ Chicken Sandwich is a clean eating recipe and was super quick and easy to make.
What is Clean Eating you ask?
Clean eating is consuming food the way nature delivered it, or as close as possible. It is not a diet; it's a lifestyle approach to food and its preparation. It's about eating real food, for a healthy , happy life. I try to keep this in mind when trying new recipes.
What kitchen tools do you need?
For this Recipe you will need an Instant Pot.
How does an Instant Pot work?
Liquid is heated in a heavy pot with a lid that locks and forms an airtight seal. Since the steam from the hot liquid is trapped inside and cannot evaporate, the pressure increases and raises the boiling point of the contents in the pot., and these items cook faster at a higher temperature. In general, pressure cooking can reduce cooking time to about one third of the time used in conventional cooking methods.
The Instant Pot can be used as a pressure cooker, rice cooker, slow cooker, steamer and yogurt maker. A pretty amazing kitchen tool.
Are you Carb Conscious?
This recipe uses Monk Fruit Sweetener in place of Sugar. Monk Fruit Sweetener is a potent no calorie no carb Paleo friendly sugar substitute that does not raise blood glucose levels. It is used to add sweetness without the calories and health problems associated with table sugar. Monk Fruit Sweetener is made from extract derived from the dried monk fruit.
Are you are Weight Watcher?
I am a lifetime member of Weight Watchers and like to calculate the points for most of my meals as it helps me stay on track with portion control. For this Instant Pot Shredded Tangy BBQ Chicken Sandwich I calculated the complete sandwich at 10 points on the Weight Watchers program. I counted 3 ounces of the chicken at 3 points,2 points for ¼ cup of the BBQ Sauce,2 points for the whole wheat bun and 3 points for ⅓ of the homemade coleslaw.
If you use chicken breasts instead of thighs you can shave off 3 points and use Tumaros Low in Carb Whole Wheat Wraps at 1 point each you can drop it to a 6 point sandwich. You have options to play around with.
