Snow days are made for trying out new recipes.  This one worked out great.  Double the amount of sauce called for in the recipe.  This would work fine in a wok instead of a pressure cooker, but the pressure cooker speeds things up a bit.

I'm not going to lie, I am quite proud of this recipe! It is so good on so many levels. The idea came to me after using my Instant Pot for a bit realizing that the extra liquid was always boiling after cooking the meat. I put that together with the fact that rice noodles are cooked by letting them set in boiling water as opposed to how traditional noodles are boiled.

That resulted in this Pressure Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken & Noodles recipe where you cook the chicken in a thai peanut sauce, open your electric pressure cooker to add the noodles and peas and then cover it back up and leave it on the slow cooker mode.

Thai Peanut Pressure Cooker Recipe


The end result is the most tender and flavorful chicken with a rich Thai peanut sauce with just enough noodles for a healthy and semi low-carb recipe. The peanuts and peas are optional, but they add a nice crunch and color to the otherwise brown dish. This wholesome meal is something that you will not only feel good about eating, but you will keep coming back for more, because it tastes so good!

Healthy Chicken Pressure Cooker Recipe


While I love making simple roasts or chicken in my Instant Pot, it is fun and challenging for me to come up with complete one-pot meal. Whether I am cooking up Pressure Cooker Turkey Verde & Rice or this Pressure Cooker Thai Peanut Chicken & Noodles, the electric pressure cooker is hard to beat in the convenience it provides as well as the tender fall apart meat it produces!

I was hoping to have some leftovers for lunch tomorrow, but my son is doing his best to make sure that doesn't happen.

The seeded page has a link to the recipe for Thai peanut sauce.

So my kid is fixing this one for us tonight.  Wish me luck.  He don't need no stinkin'  measuring spoons, so who knows how much red pepper flake is in there.

Yes.  Bit of a mishap - I found that the noodles cook better if soaked first, but forgot to tell him to add only the noodles, and not the water.

So we're having soup.
