Easy Instant Pot Gourmet Chicken Cordon Bleu

How did this Easy Instant Pot Gourmet Chicken Cordon Bleu come about?  Last week I was in the mood for Chicken Cordon Bleu.  I was thinking I might try and make a comfort type dish in my Instant Pot. I had my own Chicken Cordon Bleu recipe in mind to make over but I decided to check out the internet for inspiration and found one that sounded pretty good.  In fact the recipe I found was rated high and one person said her family loved it so much -  she made it twice in one week! Score! W...

Instant Pot Bourbon Butternut Chicken

Looking for some comfort food? This is it! Delicious Instant Pot Bourbon Butternut Chicken. Creamy, salty, slightly spicy with a little sweet - perfection in your mouth!  Interestingly enough Bourbon Chicken was created in New Orleans by a Chinese chef on Bourbon Street. There seems to be some discrepancy as to whether bourbon was an ingredient in the chicken or if it was named after Bourbon Street. When creating this dish, I decided to add butternut squash to the dish. Not only does it ...

Delicious and Moist Instant Pot Chicken for Sandwiches, Salads, Etc.

I'm really a lover of chicken thighs because they are so moist. I've been eating them for years. However, when Weight Watchers changed to the Freestyle program this past December and chicken breasts became free points,  I decided I needed to figure out how to to love chicken breasts.  I think I've done it with these Delicious and Moist Instant Pot Chicken. Brine the Chicken First By brining the chicken breasts (or thighs) first, (preferably overnight), then cooking them in the Instant Pot, ...

Caribbean Black Bean Soup-Instant Pot

This recipe was in my cookbook Amy's Favorite Recipes published back in 2010 and I have adapted it for the Instant Pot. The original recipe came from my mother's Army wives group when they were stationed in Texas. It's perfect on a winter day and freezes very well. I often serve it with my 2 Smart Point Slider Buns.

Instant Pot Pork Tenderloins in Creamy Mushroom Sauce

  After my last trip Germany, I came back inspired to make Jagerschnitzel in a healthy way.  I didn't want to call it officially, "Jagerschnitzel," as it isn't as rich as the German version.  Normally the pork is breaded with bread crumbs and egg or flour and egg, but since I'm trying to keep the points down, I decided to cut this part out.  Because it's done in the Instant Pot, the pork turns out very tender and juicy.  Use thin pork chops and trim the fat.

German Beef in Beer Roast

After my trip to revisit all the places I had lived in Germany last year, I came home and created this delicious and tender beef stew.  It's perfect for the fall season! This tastes best in the Instant Pot but you can also do it on the stove.

Instant Pot Kalua Pig

I've been making this dish for years but it's even better in my Instant Pot.  This is one of the recipes in my recipe triology series.  The first night you make the Kalua Pig, Homemade Hoisin Sauce and serve them in lettuce wraps with rice, the second night you make Thai Pork Pizza-it's so quick especially if you have the Whole Wheat Pizza dough already in your freezer, the 3rd night (if there are any left overs, make a big lettuce salad, add a bit of pork, add some rice, cabbage and use the ...

Pork Carnitas – Instant Pot and Slow Cooker Directions

I just love Pork Carnitas! These are a more healthier version than traditional but they still taste great! They do take a bit of prep time and marinating time but they do cook fairly fast in the Instant Pot, so be sure and make a full batch (you can always freeze the leftovers). I usually buy a 15 lb pork shoulder from Costco and cut it into 3 (5 lb.) portions. I freeze two portions for later for more Pork Carnitas or for Kalua Pig. Also be sure and use fresh oranges and limes in the marinade. ...

Lentil and Bean Chili-Instant Pot

Cozy up to the fire on a cold rainy day with a cup of this delicious Lentil and Bean Chili! Simple, yet filling. This is a perfect soup to serve for company. I let them add their own toppings. It appeals to everyone, including meat lovers,  vegans and vegetarians.  I love to serve it with my homemade focaccia.  Because the chili is low in calories and points, you can serve it with a few pieces of luscious bread and a salad on the side and still stay within your point range.  1 Smart Point ...
