Instant Pot Salsa Chicken with Cilantro Lime Quinoa
Have you joined the Instant Pot cult? I love mine, BUT (and some Instant Pot fanatics may disagree with me), I don’t think it’s the right appliance for everything. Some things deserve their time in the oven or on the stove. However. This recipe is not one of them. This salsa chicken is so quick to throw together, because the IP does most of the work.
It’s a filling recipe thanks to all the protein from the chicken, quinoa, and beans. And don’t forget about all the fiber too. When I’m prepping food for the week, this is one of my favorite recipes to have going while I’m working on other recipes.
If you’ve never used your Instant Pot before, I definitely recommend doing the “Water Test” first. You can find instructions in your manual or online. It doesn’t take long, but it’s very helpful to understand the workings of your pot and know the terminology (like What the Heck does Natural Release mean?).
