What are your Sundays like? Are they quiet and contemplative, or hectic and non-stop? I wish ours fell into the former category, but the truth is ridiculously far from that. We spend our Sundays running around like circus clowns assigned to fight fires. Half the time we don’t know where we’re headed to next, and we’re always cramming unnecessary stuff into our tiny European car. Someone is always underdressed or overdressed for the occasion. One time, Meimei insisted on wearing a full-on tulle ballgown to Costco. Another time, we arrived at the same Costco and realized Meimei didn’t have shoes. We hustle to multiple birthday parties, play dates, adult beverage time, sightseeing trips. Even if we could stop, I’m pretty sure we wouldn’t know how to.
That’s why I love this recipe for three-ingredient Instant Pot chicken. This Instant Pot chicken is the chicken that cooks while we swirl on with our busy lives. With just 3 ingredients, I can cook an entire whole chicken, shred it, store it and then use it during the week as the base for all kinds of dishes, from chicken salad to barbecue to enchiladas.
