Notes

You can buy precooked cubed or rotisserie chicken to use in the recipe if you wish.
If you want to use an Instant Pot for the entire recipe, perform the following:
  1. Saute the onions and garlic using the Saute Function on the pot.
  2. Add 4 cups of broth (omit the additional cup), the buffalo sauce, chicken breasts, and seasonings to the pot.
  3. Cook for 10 minutes with 10 minutes natural release. 
  4. Open the pot and shred the chicken. Add the Greek yogurt and sour cream. Stir until combined.
