  1. Place the first eight ingredients (through salt) in a 4- to 6-qt. electric or stove-top pressure cooker. Lock lid in place. Set electric cooker on high pressure to cook 15 minutes. For stove-top cooker, bring up pressure over medium-high heat; reduce enough to maintain steady but not excessive pressure. Cook 15 minutes. Remove from heat. For both models, release pressure quickly. Open lid carefully.

  2. Remove chicken and onion from cooker using a slotted spoon. When chicken is cool enough to handle, remove bones. Shred chicken using two forks. In a bowl combine chicken and onion; add enough cooking liquid to moisten.
