The other day, while menu planning for the week, I decided to make my Strawberry Balsamic Chicken as part of my menu.  Later, at the grocery store, I ran across some beautiful blackberries. It occurred to me that I could use these blackberries in place of strawberries, when making my chicken dish.  That was the beginning of my AIP Instant Pot Blackberry Balsamic Chicken recipe.

So, you may be asking why not just tell people to replace the strawberries with blackberries? Well, because that would be too easy.  When I pulled up the original recipe, it was actually cooked in a cast iron skillet.  But, I wanted to cook this dish in the Instant Pot.  What I did was create an entirely new recipe.  Not only have I changed the method of cooking; but, I’ve also changed many of the ingredients and amounts.  This AIP Instant Pot Blackberry Balsamic Chicken recipe is all new!

I really think you’re going to love this recipe.  It can be cooked with either chicken breasts or thighs.  I’m pretty sure it would work just as well with legs or wings, too!  You’ll want to be sure to add a little bowl of extra sauce for dipping.  I even used the sauce as dressing for my salad a few days later.  It’s really that good!

Slow cooker Short Ribs in Plum Sauce Recipe

Well, it’s seems it’s time to dust off my slow cooker, and put it to good use again.  Since getting my Instant Pot, I really haven’t used my slow cooker very often.  Cooking foods in half the time has become both necessary and more attractive to me.  But, to really get the most out of my batch cooking sessions, I’m bringing my slow cooker back into service.

AIP Paleo Slow Cooker Short Ribs in Plum Sauce

One of my favorite foods to cook in my slow cooker is short ribs.  I mean, who doesn’t love short ribs? They’re inexpensive, easy to eat and mighty tasty.  When I found some beautiful fresh plums at my local health food grocer, I immediately knew I wanted to create a sweet dish with short ribs.  These short ribs in plum sauce are tangy and sweet.  Cooked in your slow cooker, these short ribs will be falling off the bones tender.  You could serve this dish over cauliflower rice, kelp noodles, yam noodles or zoodles.

As I’m writing this post, I’m suffering from the worst ear and sinus infection I’ve had in years.  My balance is completely off, making walking a very funny sight.  It’s too bad I finished off the last of my Paleo Meatloaf with Shallot Gravy a couple of days ago.  I could really go for some comfort food right now.

Sub in some onions.  It’s completely customizable!

I’m headed to the doctor’s office today.  Normally, I wouldn’t even bother to go, with an ear and sinus infection; but, I wanted to have some blood work done anyway.  If you receive my newsletter, you read about how important it is to listen to what your body is telling you. The day I wrote that, I was experiencing problems with my balance while doing my workout.  I also didn’t have the strength and endurance I usually have.  Little did I know at the time, I would wake up to this horrible infection.  Luckily, I paid attention to the clues my body was giving me.  I didn’t go overboard while working out when I just wasn’t feeling it.  Always listen to what your body is telling you.  When you tune into what your body is saying, you will know right away if something is just not right.  Then, you can treat yourself well.

As always, I wish you good health…..and, good food!
