  3. Set Instant Pot to “Seal” and cook on High Pressure for 8-10 minutes.
  4. Allow Instant Pot to naturally release 5 minutes and then manually release remaining pressure.
  5. Remove chicken from Instant Pot and place on a plate. Use two forks to shred.
  6. Drain instant pot and add shredded chicken back in.
  7. Pour Primal Kitchen Teriyaki Sauce on top and stir to combine.
  8. Turn on the Sauté function and add vegetables; cook for 3-4 for minutes, stirring and adding any additional sauce, if needed.
  9. Turn off the Saute and cover the Instant Pot, allowing the vegetables to steam, for approximately 5 minutes.
  10. Remove lid and test veggies. If they are too firm for your liking, put the cover back on and allow them to continue steaming for an additional 3-5 minutes.
  11. Serve over cauliflower rice for Whole30/Paleo or over regular rice.
