Instant Pot Crack Chicken with Broccoli and Carrots
Instant Pot Crack Chicken with Broccoli and Carrots tastes great and takes no time make! Anything with real bacon bits is a winner to me. And the homemade ranch dressing mix. You can find that here totally makes this dish better. It’s definitely an upgrade from the crack chicken crock pot recipe you’re used to!No more waiting 6 to 8 hours for dinner.
When I say the Instant Pot has been a total life changer, I mean it. I work a full time job and I have 3 kids, cooking was kind of a chore. It took forever. Not with the Instant Pot, this dish only took me about 30 minutes from start to finish. And clean up was a breeze.
I hear all the time, why do I need a pressure cooker when I have a slow cooker, well why cook slow when you can cut your cooking time tremendously!
Upgrade Your Crack Chicken Crock Pot Recipe
To date, I have cooked so many things in my Instant Pot pressure cooker, most of which you can find right here on my blog. I now love cooking and the kids love that they don’t have to have a “free for all” dinner night when I cook.
