I have been making big amounts of chicken breast and thighs in my instant pot on Sundays to make it easy to have quick meals with good protein. My favorite has been chicken salad…so good.
The whole fam looooves it and it last a good two or three lunches. If you haven’t made chicken salad with REAL chicken, you are missing out.
I like to kill two birds with one stone by adding 3 breast and 6 thighs to my broth recipe, so i also have stock for the week as well.
I take those thighs and use them for the salad, and store the rest!
