Finally get that Instant Pot you’ve heard everyone raving about? Or want to get one but are afraid you’ll never use it? Here are some of our favorite simple recipes that will help make cooking the easiest thing you’ve ever done! (Seriously – 6 minute spaghetti?!)
We got our Instant Pot several months ago when it went on sale, and it was one of the best decisions that we’ve ever made! Mrs. Crazy really hates cooking, so anything that decreases the amount of work is a necessary addition to our kitchen! It took us a little while to get used to it, but we’ve finally got it down! Here are some of our favorite ways to use our Instant Pot:
Note: when we say “Manual” we are talking about high pressure (in case you have a different brand pressure cooker).
Now, this has probably never happened in your house, but one of the most difficult things about having a Monthly Meal Plan is remembering to take the chicken out of the freezer to defrost. Luckily, the Instant Pot is awesome at this! No matter what recipe you are making, if it calls for chicken (whole breast, shredded, etc.) then the Instant Pot is your best friend! Just put in a cup of water, throw in a few frozen chicken breasts, and set on “Manual” for 10 minutes. Voila! Perfectly cooked chicken that you can use as a whole breast or to shred for tacos or casseroles.
- Add one cup of water
- Put in frozen chicken breasts
- “Manual” for 10 minutes
