Instapot Chicken and Peppers

I love using my Instapot… especially those days where I forget to plan ahead what I am making for dinner.  That doesn’t really happen all that often but it’s nice to know I have options when it does!

This recipe started off just being Chicken and Peppers…. until I remembered I had a few celery stalks in the fridge that needed using up!

Chris loves the stir fry/veggies mixed with the meat of choice sort of meals, and to have them served on rice…. so that’s what I did but in the Instapot… and I served it over some brown rice! What it lacks being not very photogenic, it makes up for in taste lol!


This is what I started with making this recipe.

I had precut my veggies in the morning so all I had to really do come dinner time was to dump everything in the Instapot!

I placed the chicken in the bottom of the Instapot bowl.

Placed the peppers, red onion and celery on top….

Sprinkled the garlic, chili powder, cayenne, paprika, onion salt, and sat & pepper on top before pouring the chicken broth in…

Then I set the Instapot to Pressure Cook for 30 minutes. Once it was finished cooking, I quick released the steam and opened the pot… and stirred it all up.

I placed a bed of brown rice on the plates and then scooped out the chicken and peppers with a slotted spoon and served!
