Instant Pot Simple | Carry Out Chicken and Broccoli in the Instant Pot

Hey Y’all –

Over the quarantine, I have been working on trying to lose weight and bring my blood pressure down. Talking with my nutritionist, I realized Chinese take-out is my weakness but full of sodium. I spend a big portion of my early quarantine eating take-out chicken and broccoli, sweet and sour chicken, and crab meat wontons.

If I was going to lose weight and work on my blood pressure I had to give some things up (or work in moderation). In comes my Instant Pot. Making some of my favorites and controlling my seasoning has been helpful during this time.

In the video below I show you how I make chicken and broccoli in the Instant Pot. I have an Instant Pot Mini (You can purchase HERE)
