I always forget how much I love Chicken Cacciatore. It is so easy to make, full of rich flavors, and can be adapted for the Instant Pot®. Chicken Cacciatore is an Italian stewed chicken that simmers slowly in tomato sauce. It can be served over rice, noodles, or even on its own. Some recipes call for dusting the chicken in flour. I never do this, which makes this a great gluten-free recipe. I think the sauce is thick and rich without any added starch.
I love Orange Chicken. There is an old-school Chinese restaurant in my neighborhood. Its décor has not been updated since the 1940s and they make a couple of things really well - namely Egg Rolls and Orange Chicken. Orange Chicken is deep fried deliciousness, covered in a sweet and sticky sauce. I only get a craving for it about once a year, which is good, because it's not exactly a health food. Plus, deep frying is not something I want to take on in my kitchen. I decided to try and adapt the flavors into a healthier version for theInstant Pot®. It was a huge success.
Yesterday was one of those day where I just did not feel like cooking. I knew I had chicken in the fridge that I had to use. I was too tired to grill and it was too hot to light my oven. I had taco fixings, but no shells. I felt uninspired and knew I had to think of something that would be a crowd pleaser with minimal effort on my part. When I opened my cupboard and found a jar of salsa, I knew dinner could be saved. Instant Pot® to the rescue with these amazing Chicken Burrito Bowls. I even made an easy salsa rice that I will share with you soon.
I have been working on a dessert for a couple of weeks, and so far, it is a no-go. So while I keep trialing and testing, I will instead bring you a really tasty recipe for Honey Chipotle Barbecue Chicken Thighs in the Instant Pot®. The recipe uses the Honey Chipotle Barbecue Sauce from the blog. On a rainy summer day like today, I like recipes like this that bring the flavors of a sunny barbecue indoors.
I am going to start this recipe for Hainanese Chicken Rice with a little Instantly Delicious geography lesson. Hainan is an island located in the southern part of China. During the late 19th century through World War II, immigrants started fleeing Hainan and living and working in Singapore. Singapore is a culturally diverse, island city-state situated at the southern tip of Malaysia. The Hainanese brought with them this famous dish, and it became very popular. This humble looking dish is served all over Singapore in food stalls, and should you ever visit Singapore, be sure to research who has the best. According to my Singaporean husband, simply find the stalls with the longest lines.
It's my birthday week and it is also Cinco de Mayo. Since I love Mexican food, margaritas, and celebrations, I decided to make chicken tacos using the Instant Pot® to celebrate. These were so fun and very delicious. Dressed with a little white onion, lime juice, and cilantro, these were the perfect tacos to celebrate Cinco de Mayo and my Birthday.
Lemony Chicken Soup is a standby because it cooks up quickly and is full of lemony flavor. I used the Instant Pot®, premade chicken stock. rotisserie chicken, and some cut up vegetables to make this quick weekday soup smell and taste like it was simmered for hours on a Sunday afternoon.
Chicken curry is rich, exotic, and perfect dish for making in a pressure cooker. The curry spices blend perfectly and the meat is tender and succulent, like it simmered slowly on the stove. There are so many variations of curries. Indian, Thai, Chinese, to name a few. All use different spices and sauces and are very specific to the region from which they come.
Barbecue Chicken in the middle of winter? Using the Instant Pot ® to take a frozen block of chicken to delicious goodness in 20 minutes? Amazing.
I strongly believe that every non-vegetarian/vegan cook should know how to cook a whole chicken. I view it as an essential life skill. A roasted chicken in the oven is one of the easiest, most comforting dinners that you can serve. A whole chicken cooked in the Instant Pot® pressure cooker, makes it easy for anyone to cook a whole chicken quickly. I like to do this, even when we aren't having it for dinner. I use the cooked chicken in soups, stews, burrito bowls, and in small containers to top salads or serve my toddler for lunch.
