Garden Chicken with Cauliflower Rice

Keto Recipes > Keto Dinner Recipes

I love an easy Instant Pot recipe and this one tastes so good! Simply put the ingredients into the Instant Pot and let it cook your dinner! Essentially, all you have to do is make the cauliflower rice to pair with this dish.

This garden chicken recipe is a South American dish. The herbs, green olives, and pumpkin puree are a couple ingredients that give it an authentic taste when paired with the chicken and other vegetables in this dish. It comes out of the instant pot creamy and when plated, the cauliflower rice soaks up all these juices for an exquisite taste.
