With the craziness of the holidays (ok, pretty much any time of the year), cooking with our Instant Pot sounds like a good idea to keep dinners mostly hands-off and easy. This Instant Pot honey garlic chicken is a great make-ahead meal prep recipe!
We love the versatility of this honey garlic chicken. It’s super easy to pair with just about any veggie, greens and even plain white rice if you tolerate it. Here’s a look at a simple way to use it as the protein in a pretty typical bowl at our house. We used mixed leafy greens, some pickled green beans from Justin’s mom and avocado with that yummy Everything But The Bagel seasoning from Trader Joe’s! If you haven’t tried that seasoning yet, just do it! You will wonder how you ever lived without it! We ran out of sauerkraut, otherwise I would have added a big pile of that on there too, but we ran out…so you know real life stuff.
We love our Instant Pot since it cuts down on cooking times, but this honey garlic chicken can also be made in the crockpot just as easily. Use whichever you have or prefer. Either way, you will end up with delicious shredded chicken that you can use to pair with whatever veggies, greens or sides you prefer! I’m thinking now that it would be a great one to stuff sweet potatoes or squash with. I’m making a mental note to try that out real soon!
