Instapot recipes

If you are like most parents, weekdays can be hectic! Between work, taking kids to extra curricular events like soccer / dance / piano, and doing homework getting food on the table can be tough! That’s why I like to have some quick and easy dinners ready for busy weeknights or even weekends. Just because a meal is quick to cook, doesn’t mean it isn’t mouth watering and delicious! You just need the right recipes.

One of my favorite ways to make dinner recipes is in my insta pot. I love that with this quick dinner ideas, you can go from frozen chicken to moist, flavorful chicken in 30 minutes! So for some of us forgetful moms, we can still make a delicious hot supper even if we forgot to thaw the meat! Or throw in a recipe before you leave – you will love the hearty smell that welcomes you home after a long day at work.

When pressure cooking is complete, quick release the pressure. (Remember you can’t open the lid as soon as it beeps, you need to release the pressure that allowed your chicken to cook so quickly! See you manual for complete instructions but basically you move your dial to quick release and steam will begin coming out, when the pressure valve drops you know it is safe to open your pot and remove your Italian chicken!

Remove the lid, using tongs take the chicken out of the inner pot and keep the liquid mixture in the pot, set the instant pot to saute once more, add 1 Tablespoon flour and 2 Tablespoons heavy cream and whisk with the lemon sauce in the pan until thickened. Add additional salt to taste.

Instapot recipe

Often times I like to serve my family plates of food just like they bring at a restaurant. We have 6 children with 3 under 5 so passing heavy bowls can be difficult at times. So I scoop up each plate with pasta, a piece of chicken, and a ladle full or sauce. Top with parmesan and parsley to garnish if you like. Then each of my children take their plate to the table. This avoids passing, dirtying another serving dish, and allows me to give each child an appropriate size portion.
