  1. I’m confused. I was concerned, when I made this, that there wasn’t enough water in it because the BBQ is very thick. I was worried it wouldn’t come to pressure. And it didn’t. So what gives? The pressure cooker needs water (liquid) to pressurize and some liquids (in this case the bbq sauce) is too thick. I had to add water the second time and then guess how much longer to cook it (since it basically only steamed the first time) once it pressurized like it was supposed too (i.e.. the silver pin popped up).

    1. We’re sorry this recipe gave you a bit of trouble. All our recipes are tested before they’re published however we do note that due to the nature of pressure cooking there is always room for inconsistency. Thank you for your feedback!

  2. I had the same problem as paparazzi stated above. I added a cup of water and then put it on the “poultry” setting for 10 minutes….problem solved.

  3. I didn’t add any water and it came to pressure just fine for me. I used an immersion blender to blend the sauce after taking the chicken out and it was really good.

    1. Coconut oil and any other oil, however, I know that would affect the recipe, as I believe it wouldn’t be Paleo or Whole30.

  4. I wish I would have read the comments first!

    My Instant Pot also never came to pressure because of the thick sauce. Added 1 1/2 cups of water to the sauce and it worked fine.

    Can’t wait to taste!

    1. Sorry for that confusion. Inner pot just means the steel cooking pot that comes inside of the actual pressure cooker. It is not a pot-in-pot recipe!
