Low Carb Instant Pot Chicken and Tomato Basil Pesto
Blah, blah, blah, by now you know I would marry my Instant Pot if I could. So I will spare you the mushy details of my love for it, for now. I am currently working on more meal planning, not only for my low carb lifestyle but also for my family.
I was shocked that even the kids loved this Chicken and Tomato Basil Pesto with Veggies. I got no complaints and with only 6 net carbs per serving, (it makes 8 servings) I was definitely happy.
