Last night I’d like to say that my culinary skills won the prize for best dinner. However, that’s only a half-truth. The real winner of last night’s meal was my very wonderful Instant Pot, Izzy. You see, after a day of running the kids here and there, then hosting my sister and aunt over for a lovely lazy lunch, then trying to work while Landon refused to nap, dinner was about the last thing on my mind. So at 5:10 pm when Bob sent me his daily “On my way home” text (which is usually when I hit the panic button and realize I can’t put off figuring out what’s for dinner one second longer) I headed into the kitchen.
What could I make that was quick and fairly painless? Pasta? Hot Dogs? My eyes settled on the boneless chicken thighs in the fridge and I quickly decided to let the Izzy take it from there. I spent 5-10 minutes rounding up and chopping some veggies before chucking the whole mess into the Instant Pot. This is pretty much as simple as it gets, and I want to stress this fact: our meal tasted so flavorful and savory, you would have thought that it spent allllllll day simmering on my stove or in the slow cooker. NOPE!! 40 minutes was all it took to go from turning the Instant Pot on to sitting down for a family dinner.
Let me show you how easy it was to make this Chicken and Vegetables Instant Pot Meal!
