Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore (Paleo, Whole30, Keto)[Video]

This easy but flavorful Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore is a fast and delicious meal any time of the year, and it’s paleo, Whole30, and keto-friendly!

Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore is one of those Italian dishes that brings me so much comfort and joy. I love any meat dishes in spiced and simmered tomato sauce, and this Instant Pot chicken cacciatore is a perfect example of that. Not only does it taste like it’s been braised for hours, but it actually only take 10 minutes of cooking time in the Instant Pot!

The Most Flavorful Chicken Cut

I find that this Instant Pot chicken cacciatore recipe tastes the best and yields the most flavorful results when you use bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs. This cut brings out the most juice in the sauce AND the meat will turn out so tender as well. You can, of course, use other chicken cuts, like breasts or boneless, skinless thighs, if that’s what you prefer. I never tried but I bet drumsticks would be amazing as well!

The Instant Pot Size Matters

I cooked this Whole30 chicken cacciatore in a 6-qt Instant Pot. But, if you have one that’s larger, you may want to double the recipes for everything to come to pressure. If you DON’T want to make that much, you can also just double the broth. The sauce may come out a bit more watery, but the flavor will still be there!

How to Serve This Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore

This version of chicken cacciatore uses a lot of veggies, so you can totally feel satisfied eating it on its own. But if you want to prepare a side to go with it, these are some of my favorites:

  • zucchini noodles
  • cauliflower rice
  • spaghetti squash
  • gluten free pasta
  • paleo keto bread
  • polenta (if you eat grains)
  • rice
  • gnocchi

Hope you enjoy this Instant Pot Chicken Cacciatore, that’s full of rustic and comforting flavors. Please leave me a review below of how it turns out if you make it!

White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies [VIDEO]

These fudgy and decadent Paleo Brownies are so delicious with the white chocolate glaze, you’ll want to make it over and over again!

White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies

Holy moly. Someone come and take these paleo brownies out of my house, please. They are way too addicting and I can’t stop. So make at your own risk. Don’t say I didn’t warn you now.

White Chocolate Glaze Paleo Brownies Recipe

These paleo brownies are made with almond flour as the base and sweetened with coconut sugar. They honestly just taste like regular brownies and you wouldn’t even notice that they are grain free. The combination of eggs, ghee, and melted chocolate chips makes these paleo brownies super moist and decadent.

You honestly don’t even need to make the white chocolate glaze if you don’t want to or are just feeling lazy. The paleo brownies alone are pretty darn fantastic if I do say so myself. BUT. If you want to feel a bit fancier and extra, the white chocolate glaze really does add a fantastic texture to the recipe.

Decadent White Chocolate Glaze

If you are a white chocolate lover, I highly recommend you add this layer because it’s super easy to make but adds such a delicious and delicate crunch and sweetness to this recipe. Cacao butter is melted with a little big of honey then poured and brushed on top of the paleo brownies. Once it’s cooled, it hardens into the most delicious glaze that complements the softness of the brownies so so well.

It also adds such a pretty design to the brownies that I think makes them look even more special. I’m definitely going to have to make a batch over the winter because I’m loving the “snowy” look of that glaze! So perfect for the holidays.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and line an 8x8 baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together almond flour, carob powder, coconut sugar, baking soda, and sea salt. 
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, ghee, and vanilla extract. 
  • Pour wet ingredients over dry ingredients and stir together until smooth.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan. 
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. 
  • Cool the brownies in the pan for 30 minutes. 
  • While the brownies are cooling, melt cacao butter and honey in a heat safe bowl over a pot of simmer water on low heat, about 5 minutes. The mixture should be thin. You can also microwave this mixture 30 seconds at a time while stirring in between until completely melted.
  • Set aside to cool until warm to touch. 
  • Once the brownies are cooled completely, evenly pour the cocoa butter mixture over the brownies and use a spoon or a spatula to evenly spread into a thin layer.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt flakes, if using. 
  • Place in the refrigerator for 10-15 minutes until the glaze hardens and turns white.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and use the parchment paper to lift the brownies out of the pan. You may need to use a knife to loosen the sides if the glaze seeped in there. 
  • Cut into squares and enjoy! Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

Easy Microwave Paleo English Muffin (Low Carb, Keto)

If I knew how easy it was to make a grain free, paleo English muffin, I would’ve been eating this all the time. But now that I finally realize how simple it is, this recipe is going to be on repeat both on weekdays and weekends because it’s so dang easy to make and takes less than 5 minutes.

Not only is this Paleo English Muffin made with healthy and simple ingredients, all you need is a microwave and a mug for a quick and easy breakfast that you can top with whatever you heart desires. I like to top mine with grass fed butter and spread some of my Paleo Orange Blueberry Jam. It’s seriously so delicious and fluffy!

And best of all, this muffin is low carb and keto without any added sugar, so it’s perfect for anyone who is craving bread on a low carb or low sugar diet (like me!). I’m not keto, but I tend to be low carb most of the time because that’s what makes me feel best with even energy throughout the day. I do love a gluten free toast now and then, but I feel like I can eat this English muffin anytime without giving me a sugar crash afterwards.

I think I’m going to need to make an eggs benedict recipe with these paleo English muffins and share with you soon. It’s one of my favorite brunch items and I haven’t been able to enjoy it in a long time without substituting the bread with sweet potatoes or home fries. I’m actually super excited about it so stay tuned, friends!
