  • 2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 1/2 red onion sliced
  • 2 medium bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce plus extra (I like Trader Joe’s Organic Kansas City Style)
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 ground fennel seed


  • Combine all ingredients in the inner pot, cover and pressure cook on high for 25 minutes.
  • When cook time is down, quick release the pressure.
  • Remove 1 cup of the liquid and set aside.
  • Shred the chicken and add back about 1/2 cup of the liquid and more BBQ sauce until it’s a saucy as you like it.
  • Slow Cooker: cook on high for 4 hours (or low for 6)
  • Stove top: cook, covered for 30-40 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165-degrees F
