I am absolutely making this one again like next week. I also need to turn this one into a video because it was super easy to whip together and it is seriously worth making! I altered the original recipe some, so below are the ingredients I used for meal prep. I mainly just doubled most ingredients, then left out the chicken stock entirely since I had increased the juices (the recipe definitely doesn't need anymore liquid). There is also an optional step to make the chicken more crispy, but I clearly took the easy way out and just ate the chicken as-is from the Instant Pot. The only additional step I did was put the Instant Pot on "Saute" mode once the chicken was shredded, and stirred around occasionally until the sauce reduced some. The chicken turned out full of flavor and can easily be paired with some plain cauliflower rice and/or regular rice. While the chicken was cooking in the Instant Pot, I heated up some coconut oil in a frying pan, then added plain riced cauliflower and cilantro for an easy vegetable pairing. If I had extra limes I would have also thrown in some fresh lime juice too. Just an idea for you. This one was a big hit in my house and will definitely not disappoint!
