  • Add all of the ingredients to the Instant Pot.
  • Seal the instant pot, make sure that the steam release is set to sealed. And set it to manual, high pressure for five minutes.
  • It will take a little bit (about 10 minutes) to reach pressure, and then it will count down the 5 minutes.  Once it beeps, turn the steam release to venting (quick release, not natural release). Once the float valve drops (about 10 more minutes), you can open the pressure cooker.
  • Take out the chicken tenders. Shred them, top the chicken with pico de gallo and serve in taco shells.
