Calories per serving: 390 kcal
  • 1 1/4 lb raw chicken breast
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, sliced (130 grams)
  • 4 cups HEB broccoli slaw (340 grams)
  • 1 cup Lundberg Organic Brown Jasmine Rice, cooked according to package directions (180 grams dry measure)
  • 1/3 cup green onions, chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Optional: 1/4 cup crushed peanuts
  • 1 cup light coconut milk (8 fl oz)
  • 1/3 cup PB2 powdered peanut butter (32 grams)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (12 grams)
  • 2 tbsp Skippy Natural Creamy Peanut Butter (32 grams)
  • 2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce (1 fl oz)
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar (1/2 fl oz)
  • 1 tbsp Thai Kitchen red curry paste (15 grams)
  • 1 tbsp ginger paste (9 grams)
  • 1 lime, juiced
  1. In a small bowl, whisk all sauce ingredients except PB2 and peanut butter (they will burn if you put them in before cooking).  Pour 1/2 of the sauce into the bottom of the Instant Pot.  Add chicken, then add remaining sauce.

  2. Set Instant Pot to high pressure for 12-14 minutes (do 14 mins for thicker pieces of chicken), followed by manual release.  Remove chicken, shred, and set aside. Pour the sauce into a bowl and whisk in PB2 and peanut butter.

  3. Set Instant Pot to sauté and add bell pepper and broccoli slaw. Sauté for 5 minutes or until pepper begins to soften slightly. Return sauce to the Instant Pot and mix.

  4. Return chicken to mixture and stir to coat. Add a little chicken stock if the sauce is too thick.

  5. Serve chicken mixture over a bed of rice and top with fresh cilantro, green onions, and peanuts (if desired).
