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 inspired by a recipe I saw on Julia’s Album and wanted to make it in my IP. If you haven’t gotten yours yet, then grab one here for a great price.
