When I was pregnant with my third son I made some pretty awesome buttermilk chicken recipes.   They were delicious, but they never photographed well enough to put up on the blog.   Besides, some of buttermilk chicken recipes I was a little out there.  Expecting mothers who are food bloggers can come up with some pretty creative recipes.

We eat chicken a lot, like a lot, a lot.  And I am always looking for new ways to prepare it.   I have been loving my Instant Pot lately.

So far, as of late, I have made Cider Pulled Chicken and Instant Pot Chicken Gyro Soup in my Instant Pot.  If you have not gotten one- you should 🙂
