Whole30 Instant Pot Ranch Chicken

January 06, 2020

Whole30 Instant Pot Ranch Chicken

Tangy, moist, tender, zesty, a touch spicy and herby, versatile, quick, and easy, this Whole30 ranch chicken is a set-it-and-forget-it recipe that compliments dozens of recipes and uses. Four simple ingredients transform boring chicken thighs and bland breasts into a palate-tingling protein perfect for weekly meal prep or make-ahead meals for the family. This recipe makes two pounds of chicken—a combination of breast and thigh meat—that can be stored in the refrigerator for four to five days in an airtight container, or in resealable bags stored in the freezer for three months. Bookmark this recipe, pin it, or save it because you’ll want to make it again and again to get you through Whole30 and beyond. 

Because this easy Whole30 chicken packs so much flavor, it can spruce up endless versions of riced or spiralized veggies, tender salad greens, macro bowls, baked potatoes, or sliced sweet potato toasts. Pile diced Whole30 ranch chicken into bib lettuce cups with sliced grape tomatoes, avocado, and fresh cilantro for tortilla-free Whole30 tacos; shred and add to a Whole30 soup made with chicken bone broth, plenty of diced veggies, and fresh thyme; sauté with spiralized squash noodles, julienned bell peppers and onions for a Whole30 Southwest spaghetti.
