IP Garlic Mushroom Chicken Trim Healthy Mama S

This trim healthy mama s dinner is cooked in the instant pot. It is super easy to make in the instant pot but you can make this in your crockpot as well. What is great about the IP is that you can saute, cook, and boil for this dinner in one pot. You can use whatever low carb noodle substitute that you want to use. I give my kids regular noodles and my hubby and I had dreamfields. I use dreamfields around 2 times a month. My hubby doesn’t care for spaghetti squash but I really like it. If I have time to cook one up, I generally eat the leftovers throughout the week.

So many of my trim healthy mama recipes are great for busy families. I have 5 people, 2 adults and 3 older teens. I am a busy mom and don’t have time to spend a ton of time in the kitchen every night. I have a few recipes on here that are for lazier days, but most of the thm recipes are for busy lives. While this is cooking in your IP, unload the dishwasher, make your side, prep your food for tomorrow, sit down and rest, etc. You can whisk in some xanthan gum to the liquid after you remove the chicken breasts to shred them. It will create a thicker sauce.
