Baked Shredded Chicken Burritos

Best way to cook chicken breasts to use for shredded chicken:

I like to make my shredded chicken in the Instant Pot. Add chicken, 2 cups water, set to 'poultry' and cook for 35 minutes.  If you have a KitchenAid mixer you can shred the chicken using the dough hook.
