My friend sent me a list of pressure cooker recipes she has tried, so I am pretty much set for meal prep for the next month now. This balsamic chicken was the first one on the list and it turned out so delicious! The ingredient list is really simple and the prep for this one is minimal. While the chicken was cooking, I spiralized 4 zucchinis with my Veggetti (I found this for pretty cheap at my local grocery store a while back), which makes zucchini noodles extremely fast and easy. Most grocery stores these days also sell already spiralized vegetable noodles if you don't have your own spiralizer or don't feel like spiralizing your own vegetables. I wrote some notes below about the zucchini noodles and how I prepared them. Another note I made below is about thickening up the sauce some and I definitely recommend doing that if you make this. I plan to prep more zucchini noodles later in the week too because I have found that they go bad after a few days. Overall though this meal was delicious, super simple, and definitely worth making for dinner or meal prep!
Instant Pot Balsamic Chicken
*I took the chicken out to shred and put my pressure cooker on saute mode to thicken up the remaining sauce.
**The original recipe recommends not cooking the noodles, but letting it steam in the sauce. In the past I have placed my zoodles on top of the food in the slow cooker once it was done and let it steam in there, so I am sure that would work with the pressure cooker too.
