Raise your hand if you purchased an Instant Pot on Black Friday or Cyber Monday! I’v had mine for a whole year now and I still love it!
My crockpot dish got a huge crack in it last year, so I decided to check out this whole Instant Pot thing. I’m absolutely a fan. One of my favorite features on it is the “Saute” button. I use it in this Turkey Chili with Butternut Squash.
If you’ve ever had to brown the meat of a recipe before you put it in your crock pot, you’ll love it too! If I can save washing a dish, I’m all about it!
And, speedy dinners anyone? Forgot to thaw the meat? Tender roast in an hour? Big batches of rice? Learn to make yogurt? All great reasons to use your Instant Pot!
Whether you’re just starting out with the Instant pot or not, Instant Pot Bruschetta Chicken is a fabulous easy dinner that comes together so quickly.
All you do is throw your chicken in the Instant Pot with a cup of liquid and cook it for 15 minutes. It will need time to come up to pressure and natural release. The result is tender juicy chicken.
While the chicken is cooking, you can make the bruschetta topping. I love the multi colored tomatoes as they add so much color to the dish. Colorful food is my thing!
