Honey Garlic Instant Pot Chicken Breasts

Honey Garlic Instant Pot Chicken Breasts

Ingredients

1/3 C. water or vegetable broth or chicken broth

¼ C. low sodium soy sauce

¼ C. honey

2 cloves garlic minced

¼ tsp. black pepper

1 1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts

2 tsp. cornstarch

Directions

1. Combine water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic and pepper in Instant Pot. Stir. Next, add the chicken breasts to the Instant Pot. Close the lid and turn the steam valve to the sealing position. Set Instant Pot to pressure cook/manual, high pressure. Set the cook time according to the size of your chicken breasts. For fresh: 8 minutes for small (7-8 ounce) chicken breasts, 10 minutes for medium (10 ounce) chicken breasts, or 11 minutes for large (12 ounce) chicken breasts.

2. The Instant Pot will take about 10 minutes to come to pressure and then will start counting down the cook time. When it beeps to let you know the cook time has finished, carefully quick release the pressure by using the handle of a long spoon to turn the steam valve to venting. (If your chicken breasts were frozen, do a 10 minute natural release instead of a quick release. Just leave the Instant Pot alone for 10 minutes before turning the steam valve to the venting position.)

3. Wait for the steam to escape and the pin to drop down. Then, carefully remove the lid. Use an instant read thermometer to test the internal temperature of the chicken. It should be at least 165 degrees F. If the temperature is lower, finish cooking the chicken using the Instant Pot’s saute mode. Remove chicken to a clean plate or cutting board.

4. In a small bowl, stir together the two teaspoons cornstarch and one tablespoon of water. Turn the Instant Pot on saute mode and stir in the cornstarch mixture. Cook, stirring, until the liquid has thickened, 2-3 minutes. Turn off Instant Pot and remove the inner pot to stop the cooking process. Slice the chicken and stir it back into the sauce in the pot. Serve with rice and vegetables, or as desired.

**For frozen chicken breasts, add 3 minutes to the cooking times listed in step 4, and pressure cook (manual) at high pressure. Be sure that your chicken breasts are not stuck together as that will increase the pressure cook time.**

Notes

To Cook in a Slow Cooker:

1. Stir together water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic and pepper in slow cooker insert. Add the chicken.

2. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or high for 2 hours, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees F.

3. Remove chicken to a clean plate or cutting board. Turn slow cooker to high setting.

4. In a small bowl, stir together 2 teaspoons cornstarch and 1 tablespoon water. Stir this into the liquid in the slow cooker and cook on high until thickened, about 20 minutes. Slice or shred the chicken and stir it into the sauce in the slow cooker. Serve with rice and vegetables, or as desired.

To Make as a Freezer Meal:

1. Add water or broth, soy sauce, honey, garlic, pepper and chicken to a heavy duty zip top freezer bag.

2. Freeze flat for up to 3 months.

3. When ready to cook, thaw in cool water just until sauce is thawed. Transfer to Instant Pot and cook as directed above.

Crispy Parmesan Chicken with couscous & lemony roasted green beans

Consider plain chicken breasts a thing of the past: in this recipe, the white meat gets gussied up in a gorgeous golden breadcrumb seasoned with paprika and Parmesan cheese. You’ll roast it and the lemony green beans on the same sheet—once they’re in the oven, the only thing left to do is boil the couscous and toss in the garlic herb butter. Simple, satisfying, and supercharged with flavor—what more could you want?

Crispy Parmesan Chicken with garlic herb couscous & lemony roasted green beans

Ingredients

4 scallions

1 lemon

1/2 C. panko breadcrumbs

1/2 C. Parmesan cheese

2 tsp. Hot smoked paprika

24 oz chicken breasts

4 Tbsp. Sour Cream

12 oz. Green Beans

1 C Isreali couscous

4 Tbsp. Garlic Herb butter

4 tsp. Olive Oil, divided

Salt and pepper

Directions

1. Move the oven rack to middle position (middle and top positions for 4 servings) and preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry all produce. Trim and thinly slice scallions, separating whites from greens. Zest and quarter lemon.

2. In a small bowl, combine panko, Parmesan, paprika, a large drizzle of olive oil, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Pat chicken dry with paper towels; season all over with salt and pepper. Evenly brush tops of chicken with sour cream. Mound panko mixture on top, pressing firmly to adhere (no need to coat the undersides).

3. Toss green beans on one side of a baking sheet with a large drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt and pepper. Place the chicken crust sides up on empty side of same sheet. Roast until green beans are tender and chicken is cooked through, fifteen – seventeen minutes. (For 4 servings, divide between 2 baking sheets; roast green beans on top rack and chicken on middle rack.) TIP: If green beans are done before chicken is cooked through, remove from sheet and continue roasting chicken.

4. Once water is boiling, add couscous to pot. Cook until tender, six – eight minutes. Drain thoroughly. Melt garlic herb butter in empty pot over medium heat. Add scallion whites and cook until softened, one minute. Return cooked couscous to pot and stir to coat. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

5. Once green beans are done, remove sheet from oven and toss with lemon zest and lemon juice to taste. Divide chicken, green beans, and couscous between plates. Garnish chicken with scallion greens. Serve with leftover lemon wedges on the side.

Chicken Cheddar Fajitas from HelloFresh

Chicken Cheddar Fajitas

Ingredients

2 Red onions, thinly sliced

2 bell peppers, thinly sliced

1 jalapeño, thinly sliced into rounds (remove ribs and seeds for less heat)

Zest and quarter 3 limes

2 Tbsp. Fajita seasoning

4 Tbsp. sour cream

1 lb chicken breast

2 Tbsp olive oil, divided

Flour or wheat tortillas

Shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

1. In a small bowl, combine jalapeno and juice from two lime wedges. Set aside to pickle. Heat a tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion, bell peppers and half of the fajita seasoning (you’ll use the rest later.) Cook, stirring, until softened and lightly charred, 4-5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off heat; remove from pan and set aside.

2. Meanwhile, in a second small bowl, combine sour cream, a squeeze or two of lime juice, and lime zest to taste. Stir in water one tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

3. Pat chicken dry with paper towels. Thinly slice into strips; season with salt and pepper. Heat a large drizzle of oil in pan used for veggies over medium-high heat. Add chicken in a single layer and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, two-three minutes. Stir in veggies and remaining Southwest Spice. Continue cooking until chicken is cooked through, two-three minutes more.

4. Meanwhile, place tortillas on a baking sheet in a single layer; sprinkle evenly with cheddar. (For 4 servings, divide tortillas between 2 baking sheets.) Bake until cheese has melted, one to two minutes. TIP: Don’t let these sit in the oven too long. The tortillas should be soft, not crisp.

6. Divide the chicken mixture between tortillas. Drizzle with the sour cream and top with pickled jalapeño to taste. Serve with any remaining lime wedges on the side.
