Instant Pot Frozen Chicken and Potatoes
Hello blog friends and Happy November.
I love cooking fast and easy weeknight meals as many of you may know. One of the ways I can accomplish this is by cooking a meal using my Instant Pot.
I usually have frozen chicken cutlets in the freezer to thaw for a weeknight meal. One day I didn't take out the freezer the chicken cutlets. Instead, I decided to make this chicken dish using the frozen chicken in the Instant Pot for a quick meal.
I was amazed at how this dish came out tasting so fresh and delicious. I also made Instant Pot White Rice as a side to go with this meal.
This chicken dish reminds me of Chicken Stew. If you like using the Instant Pot, I hope you'll try out this easy weeknight meal.
