When life gives you pressure, cook with it. <– I’m not sure where I heard that saying for the first time, but it’s been my motto since I picked up my beloved Instant Pot last December. Seriously, my IP has become almost like a friend – I even took it on vacation with me. I did not, however, plop it next to me on the beach and hand it a coconut pineapple popsicle, so I guess you could say the IP is a better friend to me than I am to it.
Now, I’ll admit that when it first arrived on my doorstep I wondered if it would be easier to, say, build a time machine or earn a doctorate in theoretical physics than figure it out, but fortunately it’s much easier to use than I expected. Some friends shared a few tried-and-true recipes to help me get the hang of things, and it’s been saving dinner ever since!
Today, I want to share one of my favorite tried-and-true recipes with you. 🙂
This recipe for belly warming chicken soup was declared one of the most satisfying and flavorful ever by my husband, and it was so easy to make! I found it in Dr. Karen Lee’s ebook, Easy Instant Pot Paleo Recipes, and she graciously gave me permission to share it with you. (Thank you, Dr. Karen!) If you’re looking for delicious ways to simplify mealtimes, I highly recommend you pick up a copy.
Here are some recipes I’ve made and loved:
From left to right: BBQ Chicken Drumsticks (A bit too spicy for my littles, but no problem. More for me!), Chicken Garam Masala (So much yes to this one), and the Chicken Soup I’ll be sharing with you today.
Once you’ve delighted your family with this recipe, make sure to save the bones for homemade chicken broth. I’ll be sharing a tutorial for making it in an Instant Pot next week, but here are some slow cooker instructions for now. Also, if you’re not sure what to do with your freshly made chicken broth I have three words for you – egg drop soup.
