Dust Off Your Instant Pot

I know the instant pot already had its heyday a couple of years ago and its been all-but replaced with the almighty air fryer. But I mean, have we already forgotten what a time-saving wizard this kitchen gadget is?

First of all, I don’t have an air fryer AND I’m still in love with my instant pot – specifically for recipes like this salsa chicken meal prep. So we’re bringing it back!

This is your sign to pull the instant pot out of the pantry or cabinet and put it back to work.  It’s perfect for busy lifestyles and people who hate doing dishes (so, like… all of us?)
