Instant Pot Honey Mustard Chicken & Roasted Roots with Cauliflower Rice


  • 1-1.5-pound chicken breast, cut into large chunks
  • 1/2 cup Primal Kitchen® Honey Mustard Vinaigrette
  • 1.5 teaspoon salt
  • 2 carrots, cut into coins
  • 2 parsnips, cut into coins
  • 10-20 Brussels sprouts, trimmed and quartered
  • 1 red onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 small head broccoli, cut into florets
  • 2 tablespoons Primal Kitchen® Avocado Oil
  • 16 ounce cauliflower rice (roughly 3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped 


  • Combine chicken with 1/4 cup honey mustard and 1/2 teaspoons salt, stir to combine. Cover and let marinate for a minimum of an hour. (Tip: Marinate for up to an entire day to get full flavor!)
  • Preheat oven to 425-degrees. Combine carrots, parsnips, brussels sprouts, onion and broccoli. Toss veggies in avocado oil and salt to combine. Distribute in a single layer on parchment lined baking sheet or glass baking dish. Roast for 30-40 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
  • While roots are roasting, transfer chicken to an Instant Pot. Cook on high pressure for 12 minutes.
  • Melt ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the cauliflower rice and 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Stir to combine, then sauté over medium heat until tender and starting to brown.
  • When the chicken is done, allow to de-pressurize naturally, then open pot and transfer chicken to large bowl.
  • Use the sauté function to reduce the remaining liquid by half, forming a sauce. Shred chicken with two forks and combine with the sauce from the Instant Pot, plus add an additional 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen® Honey Mustard Vinaigrette.
  • When the cauliflower rice is golden, stir in fresh rosemary.
  • Serve chicken with rosemary cauliflower rice and roasted roots.
  • Enjoy!
