A new way to stuff a tater…

One of my favorite meals at almost any of our local BBQ joints is a stuffed baked potato.  I like to stuff the tater with brisket, or chicken or even sausage, just depending on my mood or the place.  This past week My sis-in-love decided to whip up some BBQ Chicken in our new Instant Pots and then I decided to try something super fun.  

All in one…

What I am learning about the Instant Pot is that it really is an all in one magic cooking machine.  You really can put everything you want for dinner in it and it all magically cooks to perfection  I know it sounds crazy but I wouldn’t lie to ya.

For this recipe you put the chicken in the bottom with liquid and then put the rack on top with the potatoes on there.  It all cooks in less than 30 minutes making it a perfect weeknight dinner treat.  

If stuffed potatoes are not your thing the BBQ Chicken is AMAZING all on its own.

You can slow it down as well

If you do not have an Instant Pot thats ok.  You can do the same thing in your slow cooker.  Prepare the same except wrap the potatoes in foil and place on top of the chicken and cook on low for 8 hours.  

Remove potatoes and shred the chicken and ENJOY!
