Four Easy, Healthy Weeknight Meals for Your Instant Pot & Slow Cooker

Raise your hand if your InstantPot or Slow Cooker has already saved your life this year (spoiler alert: ours are up in the air!). When you’re strapped for time or cash, nothing’s better than making a big pot of something in one of these kitchen workhorses. Today, Emily’s sharing four of her All-Time Favorite meals she makes in the Instant Pot and Slow Cooker (with methods for each appliance!). From meals you can make with pantry ingredients you for sure have *right now* to a bright lemon chicken soup that’s a hug in a bowl, not to mention carnitas and a classic Coca-Cola Pot Roast, you’ll definitely find your next favorite weeknight meal. Soup’s on, people!

A Blessing for Your Week

I hope you’re recognized for the hero that you are, the one who puts dinner on the table every night, no matter where it came from or who made it.

In the middle of a busy week, I hope you get to spend some time at the table with the people you love most.

And I hope you find a bit of peace in that moment.

Simplicity Tip of the Week

If you’re ever making a chicken recipe for the Instant Pot or slow cooker, I highly recommend you use chicken thighs. Not only are they cheaper, but they’re so much more forgiving when it comes to cook time. They won’t dry out like chicken breasts will. Even if you’re not a dark meat girl, try using them in soups and stews. You might be surprised by how much you like them.
