Another great Instant Pot recipe to add to the collection. What I enjoyed most about this recipe was that it tasted nothing like other cilantro lime chicken meals that I've made before. There was not a huge cilantro or lime bite whatsoever, but a delicious subtle hint of flavors that paired well with the Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice. I ended up tripling the recipe below and using significantly less olive oil and ghee, but other then that made the recipe as. My only note was there was a ton of sauce to thicken up at the end, so I did throw in some arrowroot powder to help thicken it up faster. Since I did this with the chicken in the pot still, my nice chicken thighs turned into a shredded chicken real quick. I don't mind this at all, but if you want the full thigh in your meal, definitely don't throw them back in the pot until you are done thickening the sauce up and the saute mode is off. I lied, one more note is for the coconut cream all you need to purchase is a can of full fat coconut milk. You can use the thick condensed part at the top of the can for the coconut cream. A little easier and cheaper then using a can of coconut cream. Overall, we really enjoyed eating this meal all week long!
Instant Pot Cilantro Lime Chicken
*For chicken breasts: use 3 breasts, sliced horizontally in half.
**I use ⅓ cup of broth combined with the juice from the lemon in a 6 Quart Instant Pot DUO with no problems or *burning sign - if needed you can increase the amount of liquid if this combination doesn't work for your Instant Pot model
