I love a one-bowl dinner. Everything is all in one bowl and it’s warm, comforting, and nourishing. That is 100% my jam.
That’s what I’m bringing you today and I know you’re going to love it. This recipe for Instant Pot Coconut Lime Chicken Bowls is not quite a soup, not quite a stew, so I settled on calling it a Bowl.
This is very much a dump and go dinner, similar to the Instant Pot Asian Noodle Bowls I recently published. Notice a theme here? Quick and easy, but still healthy, is the name of the game. You in?
We’ve got boneless, skinless chicken breasts that are cooked in coconut milk and chicken broth along with lime juice and ginger. These flavors just sing. It cooks with the cauliflower and at the end with stir in some fresh spinach. Easy peasy.
I included some rice in our bowls, but you can add quinoa, or any grain you wish, or none at all if that’s how you roll. If you don’t add anything, it will be more broth-y, but still delicious. Promise.
Let me know if you try this one! As always, leaving ratings is very helpful and I so appreciate when you do!
