Shredded Chicken Sandwiches
Shredded chicken sandwiches are a regional dish of Ohio and are served at potlucks, concession stands, parties and even restaurants.
These sandwiches cook up super fast with my new Instapot, but you can also cook the chicken in a regular pressure cooker, crock pot, or start with a rotisserie chicken or canned chicken for a quick and yummy dinner.
Shredded Chicken Sandwiches:
Make a gravy with about 1/4 cup of flour, 1 can of chicken broth, and 1 can cream of chicken soup
Add 1-2 lbs. cooked shredded chicken
1-2 sleeves of ritz crackers (crushed), season to taste
Serve warm on buns with a slice of American cheese
To cook the chicken in a Instapot or pressure cooker:
Add 1 can of chicken broth and chicken, (about 5 breasts or 2 lb of tenders) to pressure cooker. Season.
Use the poultry setting or pressure cook for 15 minutes.
Remove chicken from pot and shred. In the pot make a gravy using the Saute setting.
Stir in crackers and chicken, serve warm on bun with a slice of American cheese.
You can make these quick sandwiches at home to enjoy anytime you need a quick meal, or just craving a bit of the Midwest.
