Yes I have joined the Instant Pot cult
Ya, I have. Chicken cooked in 5 minutes. I mean seriously… who can say no to that? Ok, it isn’t a total of 5 minutes. The cook time is only 5 but it takes the pot to come to pressure about 10 minutes – still super fast. And there are a ton of recipes out there for it. This one is for curried chicken – I actually went looking for a thai style curry but I got an Indian style – which was super yummy (I ate three bowls of it) and also Keto/Paleo… I served it (to myself) with cauliflower rice and rice (for my husband who thinks cauliflower rice is gross – he is crazy but whatev).
Ingredients for Curried chicken
2 tbsp coconut oil
Two whole onions minced
2 sticks of cinnamon
10 cloves (whole)
around 2.5 lbs chicken breast cut in cubes
2 tsp crushed garlic
2 tsp ginger minced
1.5 tbsp curry powder (yellow)
1 tsp garam masala (avaliable at all Indian Grocery stores or on Amazon)
Whole can diced tomatoes and liquid
1 tin full fat coconut milk separated
salt to taste
Instructions for Curried Chicken
Put instant pot on Saute and melt and heat coconut oil then add onion, cinnamon, cloves and 2-3 tbs water and saute for 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients (except the cream part of the coconut milk – reserve this for later) and stir. Cover pot and put valve on Sealing and then set on pressure cook on high for 5 minutes. Once complete allow it to vent naturally.
In the meantime prepare rice and or cauliflower rice.
Et Voila. Seriously that’s it… Super yummy.
In case you don’t have a recipe for cauliflower rice – here is one from a prior curried chicken recipe – this one is also awesome – a totally different taste..
I hope you enjoy this one – let me know if you do… I know I will be adding it to my rotation 🙂
