Instant Pot® Bacon-Ranch Chicken Thighs Recipe
An easy one-pot keto dinner with chicken thighs and a creamy ranch cheese sauce with bacon and spinach. Serve over cauliflower rice, topped with Cheddar cheese and bacon.
It was great. Used fresh chopped up baby spinach, and bacon drippings from already cooked bacon. Then added cooked bacon. (We cook bacon or sausage ahead of time so we have grab and go food for breakfast through the week).Oh...also only did 10 min pressure instead of 12, because of less chicken.
I don't have an Instant Pot, so I did everything on the stove top, then put it in a chicken roaster pan at a low temp for an hour and a half. WE LOVED THIS! I was tempted to throw some fresh mushroom slices in, but I like to follow a recipe the way it is printed first time trying it. So, tomorrow night with the leftovers, I will saute onions and mushrooms and add it.
This was great! I used bone in thighs and took the skin off. I added some bacon bits as I did not have any bacon on hand. I topped riced cauliflower with the ranch/cream cheese sauce. Thank you for the recipe, this is a keeper!
Between AllRecipes app continuously resetting the ingredient list from 2 servings to 6, and the Insta-Pot not working the way the directions say it's supposed to, this dinner took nearly twice as long to prepare and in my opinion was not very good. My son pronounced it "ok" and ate his dinner, so I guess we will be trying it again at some point. Prior reviews were pretty spot on about adding extra bacon though.
Guys in my house enjoyed it. Might cook the chicken to be shredded first, and then make the sauce and spinach. Great recipe to tweak.
Next time I won’t use any salt, and use low sodium cream cheese.
It was so yummy! Even my 2 year old grandson loved it!
I "sort of" made it. I had a boneless skinless breast that I didn't know what to do. I had poached it but from there, what was I to do with it? Thought this would be good. Here lies the problem: (1) hubby hates chicken to begin with, but I still make it sometimes but he also has dental problems so food can't be chunky so it wound up being shredded; (2) I didn't have the Ranch Dressing packet-thought I did but...;(3) hubby also hates "white" sauces so I had to disguise it with a little Kitchen Bouquet. Otherwise, I had the cream cheese and I used some Bleu Cheese dressing about a tbsp and a tsp. of Ranch that came with his wings last week. I also added onions. He didn't put much on his plate and when I asked how it was, he said "it's edible." LOL I have a weird hubby. The list of things he doesn't like would fill a book. I will make it again with all the proper ingredients next time. Yeah, i'll make it again but still have to disguise the sauce. I liked it. I had a little left over so I will try it on my so
