With so many binge-worthy TV show options these days. How does one choose what to watch? At my house, we have a basic cable package with about 40 channels, Our PBS app, HBO Go- that we share with a few people ( shhhhhh), CBS mobile ( also a shared family account. double shhhh) and Netflix.
Do you want to know what typically happens? My husband and I spend about an hour deciding on something to watch just so we can both fall asleep 30 minutes into whatever we’re watching. Yes, we’re worn out parents. 🙂
But last week, when my husband was out with our two older boys, I found the perfect show.
Oh my gosh, with all these intense dramas on T.V these days. And with politics basically turning into a scary episode of House of Cards, day after day. It is so nice to just sit and laugh at something so light-hearted and funny! Plus I get so nostalgic for a simpler time. ( Plus Uncle Jesse still has it!)
And sometimes, I just want my dinner to be like this too. Not complicated, but enjoyable. That being said, making BBQ pulled meat is probably my favorite thing to make in my Instant Pot. Kids love it and it couldn’t be easier.
I love hard cider. I am not much of a beer drinker, but I love a nice cold cider every so often. I thought that making Hard cider pulled chicken would be delicious, and it was! This only took a few ingredients. Making pulled chicken in the Instant Pot takes much less time than a slow cooker. I love that!
I put together a video tutorial for you!
Hard Apple Cider Pulled Chicken
3 tablespoons of olive oil
2 large chicken breasts
1 small caramelized onion
3 minced garlic cloves
1/3 cup of barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 tablespoon of brown sugar
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 Honey crisp apples, peeled and sliced
1 bottle of your favorite Hard Apple Cider
Method: In your Instant Pot, drizzle some olive oil in the bottom of your pot. Hit the saute setting. Add chicken, onions, garlic, paprika, chili powder, brown sugar, apples and hard cider. Close the Instant Pot and cook for 20 minutes on poultry. The Chicken should literally fall apart once cooked.
This was really delicious! The family gobbled it up. I love how easy this is! I just threw it all together and forgot about it until supper!
