I’ve partnered with Peapod to create this content. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
The past 6 weeks have been crazier than ever. Because I launched a new business last week, I’ve been frantically running around trying to get ready for the launch, and one of the things that has suffered the most has been grocery shopping and meal planning. If I thought I didn’t have a lot of time to spare before, it’s 100 times worse now! Luckily, Peapod has saved me more than once during this past month.
Not only is ordering my groceries online a MUCH faster way to stock my pantry, it has also helped me during this busy time so that I don’t accidentally run out of staples like bread, milk, and eggs. Thank goodness for that Peapod delivery guy! I don’t even have to leave my house to fill my fridge and my pantry shelves with the food I need to feed my (sometimes demanding) family.
Another thing that has been so helpful lately has been my pressure cooker. When I wait til the last minute to prepare dinner, it’s ok. My pressure cooker gets a hot meal ready for the table in no time at all.
I whipped up this simple but tasty pesto chicken and vegetables recently, and it was a hit with everyone in the family! It couldn’t be easier, with basic ingredients I was able to add to my Peapod cart. It’s a fun variation to a classic chicken and potatoes dinner. The pesto gives everything a delicious flavor!
- 3-4 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
- 5-6 medium potatoes, skin on
- 1-2 cups baby carrots (or large carrots, sliced)
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 (6-8 oz) jar basil pesto
- 1 cup chicken broth
- Cut chicken and potatoes into bite-sized chunks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
- Add chicken, potatoes, chopped onion and carrots to the Instant Pot.
- Add pesto and 1 cup chicken broth. Stir into chicken and vegetable miszture.
- Place the lid on the Instant Pot and make sure that the top valve is on "sealing."
- Select high pressure cook for 10 minutes (press "manual, then + or - to select time).
- When the Instant Pot beeps at the end of the pressure cooking time, you can let the pressure release on it's own (slow release) or push cancel again and switch the top valve to "venting" for quick release.
