I get a lot of requests for more recipes, especially in the “quick and easy” realm. Instant Pot recipes are great for this — while they take a little more time for the pot to come to pressure and cook, once everything starts, it’s an entirely hands off cooking process.

I always get a lot of messages about my Easy Instant Pot Beef Stew recipe, so it’s pretty obvious: you guys love your pressure cookers!

Let’s change things up a little with some homemade Americanized Chinese take out-fake out: Instant Pot Orange Chicken.
