It’s June! All my favorite summer eats are coming your way! One of the questions I get a lot is how to make summer meals quick and stress-free. I know, easier said than done right? Summer is a tricky time of year! Vacations, travel, activities means different routines and schedules and that throws many people off their game.
I get it. I used to over-complicate my meals too, which lead me to feeling defeated. I honestly thought my life would turn into eating granola bars, smoothies and subs. Haha. Thank goodness I’ve learned a few tricks in my journey.
So allow me, to share on of my FAVORITE must have summer recipes. And it all begins with the Instant Pot. If you haven’t jumped on the Instant Pot bandwagon yet, you need to!
You can make a healthy meal in 30 minutes or less with it and believe me, I tried cooking a lot of ways. The Instant Pot is by far the easiest way I’ve found. Yes, it means having another appliance in your house but honestly, it will transform your summer meal prep.
This is one appliance you need to make your life easier!
Instant Pot Low Carb BBQ Chicken
Then you can make INSTANT POT LOW CARB BBQ CHICKEN! BBQ chicken is life in our house. We make it at least once a month and it pleases everyone. It’s a versatile meal with delicious flavors and most importantly, it’s EASY!
Thanks to the Instant Pot you can make it under 30 minutes (slow cooker version here). It’s one of those meals where you set it and forget it for 30 minutes then come back to a ready to serve meal!
This BBQ chicken’s also low carb. The BBQ sauce has no added sugar. I buy and trust Primal Kitchen BBQ sauce for their cleaner ingredients. I always tell my clients, you can add sugar but you can’t take it away.
What You Need
Any BBQ sauce will work for this recipe, however, if you’re trying to keep it lower carb look for a BBQ sauce with no added sugar. Most BBQ sauces do have a TON of added sugar. You can purchase BBQ sauces with no added sugar (like Primal Kitchen) or you can make your own homemade low sugar BBQ sauce and adjust the sugar to your liking.
Serve your Instant Pot Low Carb BBQ Chicken with sweet potatoes, cauliflower rice, over a salad, on a sandwich, and with brown rice, quinoa, or beans if not strictly Whole30 or Paleo. Lots of options here which makes it a great and EASY summer meal!
