The BEST Instant Pot Lemon Chicken | Dump & Go * Freezer Pack * Meal Prep

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!

Hi Friends! Today I’m sharing my favorite Instant Pot Lemon Chicken recipe with you. I love this recipe because it has bright, citrussy flavors, and you don’t even need to sautee before cooking it! It also happens to be low carb and gluten-free.

Watch the video to see how you can prep this recipe ahead and freeze as Instant Pot freezer packs.
