Using a pressure cooker is such a time saver, without sacrificing flavor! These BBQ chicken bowls are great for the whole family and are meal prep friendly.
Pressure Cooker BBQ Chicken Bowls
For those busy weeknights, most of my meals look similar to this – some pressure cooker meat, beans, rice, and avocado. I’m big on the burrito bowls, because they just come together so quickly, are hearty, and jam packed with essential nutrients. They’re also easy to serve to the baby, because you can segment everything onto a plate and make the meal look a bit more exciting!
This pressure cooker BBQ chicken is simple: dump everything into a pressure cooker, let cook, and then shred with forks or with a mixer. You’ll be amazed at how juicy and flavorful the chicken is, I always am.
To save even more time, I use canned black beans and frozen sweet corn. It really doesn’t get any easier than that! For the brown rice, I always batch cook rice in the beginning of the week, so I have some in the refrigerator, but there are plenty of great microwavable brands you can use to save even more time. And you can save leftovers easily – except for the avocado, because that will most likely brown.
If you’re vegetarian, just omit the chicken, increase the amount beans, and perhaps swapping in quinoa for extra protein – or add some chopped bell peppers for extra crunch and heartiness. It’s a total versatile bowl, and I hope your family loves it!
And as a bonus: save that leftover chicken and make quesadillas the next day! What kid (or adult) doesn’t love a chicken quesadilla?
