Servings 4 people


  • 1.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken shredded about 3 cups
  • 1 cup avocado mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp white wine vinegar (or lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar)
  • 4 tsp maple syrup
  • 2 TBS curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped cashews (or mixed nuts)
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 green onions


  • 1.      Combine mayonnaise and vinegar (or lemon juice),maple syrup, curry powder, salt, pepper, raisins, cashews (or mixed nuts),celery and green onions.  Taste and add salt if needed.
  • 2. Add shredded chicken and stir until combined.


Note: The best way to get shredded chicken is to cook in the Instant Pot for 13 minutes with a tsp each salt, onion powder and garlic powder.  You can release the steam or wait for it to naturally dissipate.  Remove the lid, use a hand mixer to shred the chicken.  It takes about 15 seconds!  Be sure to cover the pot with a large kitchen towel to prevent the hot liquid in the Instant Pot from jumping out.
