If you want a recipe that’ll give you meals all week and only takes a few minutes to prep… You’re in the right place, bookmark or pin this page!
If you don’t have an IP, that’s ok, you can do this in a normal pot (directions below.)

You’ll need:

  • A whole chicken
  • An onion (Cut into eighths)
  • A handful of carrots (I used 5 large ones)
  • A celery (roughly chopped)
  • Water
  • 1tsp granulated garlic, 3tsp dried dill, 2tsp dried parsley, 1.5tsp smoked paprika

What to do:

  1. Throw about half the veggies into the pot
  2. Place the chicken in
  3. Add the spices
  4. Add the rest of the veggies
  5. Fill with water (a little below the max fill line in the IP)*
  6. Press pressure cook, 30 minutes
  7. When it’s done, pull out the chicken, let it cool before removing the meat**
  8. You can either store it all together, but I like to separate the veggies and the broth so I can use them for other things, but it’s up to you

* If you don’t have an IP, follow the directions but instead of pressure cooking, cover the pot with a lid and reduce heat the medium-low, and cook for 1-2 hours (until veg are soft and chicken cooked)
** Once the chicken is cool, you can pull the meat off the bone and store in the fridge to add to other dishes throughout the week

Hi, I'm Thalia the Dietitian 👋 I help parents overcome picky eating challenges, conquer mealtime battles and raise happy & healthy eaters. My unique approach to parenting at mealtimes uses elements of the “division of responsibility”, but goes even further when it comes to restricting (or not restricting) foods like dessert. I help parents through my courses and 1-1 coaching program approach mealtime situations from a place of respect, curiosity, and understanding to achieve their desired results. It’s my belief that every child deserves a healthy relationship with food, and every parent can give this gift to their child. I have a Master’s Degree in clinical nutrition and dietetics and I'm mum to two little ladies (and a retired guide dog lab.)
