Asian Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing using the Instant Pot

You’ve probably heard of the Instant Pot ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

But these simple & easy to follow recipes work with any pressure cooker! All pressure cookers work on the same, simple principle: Steam pressure.

Within the sealed pot, the steam builds up therein to a very high pressure, which helps food cook much faster than other traditional methods, such as with crock pots and or ovens!

This salad is on heavy rotation in my house. Light but still hearty it is the perfect January reset salad. Also showing you how to make the easiest chicken in an Instant Pot. Enjoy!
