Low calorie instant pot recipes are hard to find. Why? Because the Instant Pot is great for meaty stews and ribs.
I have made decadent food in my Instant Pot – a large amount of jerk chicken wings turned out heavenly – but I try not to cook this way on a daily basis.
When I fell in love with my Instant Pot, I knew I had to make low calorie and healthy recipes for Snack Girl. All of these recipes are low in calories for a main course and healthy. I try really hard to do both.
The year that I started this quest – I got criticized for too many Instant Pot Recipes.
Almost all of the recipes below feature chicken. It is clear that not only do I have an Instant Pot fetish but I love cooking chicken in it. The reason is simple – chicken breast remains moist when cooked under pressure.
All meat stays moist when cooked under pressure which is why the Instant Pot is so popular. Don’t want to mess up your food? Use an Instant Pot and walk away.
Please forgive me for yet another Instant Pot post! The latest price on Amazon – see below is $90 (not that bad).
