  1. You can use frozen chicken for this recipe, just add a few extra minutes to the cooking time on your instant pot.
  2. We love sesame see buns for this, but any buns work, we also love brioche.
  3. This recipe can be frozen, see the notes above on how to do that.
  4. The lettuce is optional, but it really makes the sandwich.
  5. Sprinkle some more parmesan on top of the sandwiches before serving is highly recommended.
  6. If you can't find shredded parmesan you can use the bottled grated parmesan as well.
  7. Before serving make sure that the cheese is melted through the chicken mixture and everything is combined well.
