Instant Pot Chicken Vaca Frita with Cauliflower & Sweet Potato, and Plantain Chips
I had this grand idea of searching through past LiveSqueezy posts for meal prep inspiration and found this Vaca Frita that I remember loving. I decided to make this again with a little twist by serving it with Riced Veggies Cauliflower & Sweet Potato and Barnana’s Himalayan Pink Sea Salt Plantain Chips (paleo, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, amazing). I made the chicken recipe as is below, but only used 2 Tbsp of bacon fat (divided), so I could reserve some more fat for those Barnana Plantain Chips. Click here to find a store near you that has these chips. (Note: Although all the Barnana Plantain Chips say "paleo", the Himalayan Pink Sea Salt is the only one without added sugar and maltodextrin, so I recommend sticking to that flavor!). Anyways, back to this ridiculously amazing meal. The chicken is packed with flavor that the riced cauliflower and sweet potato didn't need anything extra - I just heated that up and mixed it on in with the chicken. My mom was a BIG fan of this one, mostly because of the plantain chips, but I also looked forward to eating this all week. Let me know if you give it a try and what you think!
