I apologize for all the Instant Pot recipes lately, but that appliance really saves me a lot of time on meal prep day. If you want to try this recipe and do not have an Instant Pot, you can sear these meatballs on a skillet, then bake in the 400 degree F oven for 15 minutes! Even if you do have an Instant Pot though, I still suggest searing the meatballs on a skillet instead of on the saute mode in the Instant Pot. Maybe it was just me, but the saute mode did not work well when I tried to quickly brown the meatballs. The ghee naturally spreads to the outsides of the pot, so some of the meatballs just stuck to the pot and were difficult to brown while keeping a meatball shape. Also, since I was trying to turn over the meatballs that were stuck to the pot, my hand just kept getting hit with hot ghee and that was not pleasant. I ended up just searing on a skillet and that was a lot easier, cleaner, and made me way less cranky. Anyways, I doubled this recipe below to get enough meatballs for the whole week, and also a few meals for my mother as well. I also ended up just adding a cup of PaleoChef Wing Sauce to make sure I had enough sauce in the pressure cooker and to cover all the meatballs. The meatballs turned out tasting delicious though! (Thank goodness because ground chicken is messy to begin with and that saute fiasco really was not pleasant whatsoever.) Also, I found out that greasing your hands with oil before making the meatballs helps the ground chicken from not sticking to your hands as much. I am not sure why I've never thought of doing that before! Anyways, I did not do a good job of selling this recipe, but the meal seriously did turn out tasting really yummy and I look forward to eating this all week. If you give it a try let me know what you think!
