Aaahh, how I used to love Pina Coladas. To me, they were the ultimate summer drink. I remember drinking gallons of them when my hubby and I went to the Bahamas. Yeah, I know, I probably wouldn’t remember if I had actually drunk gallons of them! But, there was nothing quite like sitting on a beach, with a frosty, creamy Pina Colada in my hand.
Well, needless to say, things have changed since then. I can have some version of a virgin Pina Colada. Let’s face it though, it’s not quite the same thing. So, I thought I’d start playing around with the flavors of a Pina Colada, with other foods. This Instant Pot Pina Colada Chicken Recipe is the first of a few I created. I’ll be posting the rest of them over the summer months.
One of the perks of this Instant Pot Pina Colada Chicken recipe is how versatile it is. The first night I cooked it, I served it over crisp broccoli slaw. It was light and crunchy, the perfect summer dinner. A couple of days later, I served it for lunch, over a salad of greens, with a Plantain Chip Chicken thigh on top. If you want that recipe, it’s by Laura Vein, here. I can highly recommend it!
Discovering new ways to work with leftovers is the key to eating on the AIP. While I see some people eating the same things day after day, I just can’t eat that way. I need variety- color change, flavor change, and texture change. You should always experiment with different combinations, to keep from getting food-bored. I’ll warn you though, they’re not all winners. I’ve made some “meh” combinations, and some downright nasty ones. You can get some great ideas on my Instagram account here. Don’t worry, I don’t post the yucky ones!
As always, I wish you good health……..and, good food!
