Instapot Toss It In chicken dinner
Mondays are are days to get back in the swing of things so make dinner the easy way and just "Toss It In"...
A while back I got on an Indian food kick (easier for me to eat than to cook, apparently.) As I had plenty of spices left around and Italian food is always a favorite; I mixed the two. Here is my Toss It In chicken dinner that turned out great!
4 raw thawed boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1 inch chunks (use thighs if that's what you have)
1 jar of spaghetti sauce (24 oz.)
Carrots chopped (I used the leftover half bag of pre-sliced carrot disc)or frozen veggies would work too
4 red potatoes cut into 1 inch chunks (use whatever you have on hand)
1 can of black beans rinsed and drained (feel free to use whatever can of beans you have on hand just be sure to rinse them)
½ cup of water or better still chicken broth if you have it
3 Garlic Cloves (teaspoon of dried if that's what is on hand)
1 tbls dried minced onion or one small to medium onion diced
1 tsp of ground ginger
1 tsp of basil
1 tsp of rosmary
½ tsp of cumin
½ tsp of cardamon (1 tbl spoon of Lemon juice will do in a pinch)
½ tsp of garam masala (don’t have it? Try nutmeg and pepper for a kick)
Salt and pepper to taste
Spray cooking spray into your crock pot or pressure cooker pot. Gently stir in ingredients. Cook on low 4-6 in a slow cooker of 15 minutes in a pressure cooker. Enjoy!
