Healthy Chicken and quinoa burrito bowls

Instant Pot Chicken and quinoa burrito bowls

Ingredients

2 tsp. Taco seasoning

6 to 8 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, fat trimmed

2 Tbsp olive oil

3/4 C. Fresh refrigerated tomato salsa

1 C plus 1 tablespoon store bought chicken broth

3/4 C. Red Quinoa, rinsed

1 (15-ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed

Salt and pepper

1 C. Guacamole

Directions

1. Rub the taco seasoning into the chicken. Pour the oil in pot, select sauté, and adjust to more/high heat. When the oil is hot, brown the chicken on one side only until golden brown, three minutes per batch. Press cancel . Drain the fat in the pot and return the pot to the appliance.

2. Add 1/2 cup of the salsa and 1/4 cup of the broth to the pot and scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the pot. Add in the chicken and any accumulated juices to the pot. Spoon the remaining 1/4 cup of salsa over the chicken.

3. Place a tall trivet in the pot over the chicken. In a 7-inch metal baking pan, combine the quinoa and remaining 1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon of chicken broth. Spoon the beans over the quinoa mixture, but don’t stir them in. Place the uncovered baking pan on trivet. Lock on the lid, select the pressure cook function, and adjust to high pressure for twelve minutes. Make sure the steam valve is in the sealing position.

4. When the cooking time is done, quick release the pressure. Remove the baking pan and trivet from the pot. Fluff the quinoa-bean mixture with a fork and season with salt and pepper. Divide the quinoa among bowls and top with the chicken and some of the cooking liquid from the pot. Top with guacamole. Sprinkle with the optional toppings, if using, and serve.
