Chicken Patty

Chicken Patty

Sometimes, you just want something comforting like a chicken patty. But often, the ones you buy at the store are so processed and laden with additional ingredients. They are super simple to make at home - you can make a huge batch of these and freeze them. You can eat them on a whole wheat bun, or a lettuce wrap, or even just plain!

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Instant Pot Chicken Salad

Chicken salad is a great clean eating recipe to meal prep for lunches! I make a big batch of it and my husband and I will eat it for lunch (or snacks!) all week long. I love the surprise sweetness of the dried cranberries in it. I also love the versatility of chicken salad - you can put it in a lettuce wrap, make it into a sandwich, top a salad with a scoop, or even just eat it straight out of the bowl. This is my third (I think?) recipe where I’ve made shredded chicken using my Instant Pot and, if you couldn’t tell, I’m in love. It’s an effortless way to make moist, delicious shredded chicken!
