For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have (a 6 quart) and use for all recipe creations.

When school begins again I like to create weekly meal plans to make dinnertime easier on me. Most are done in 20 minutes or less, a fraction of the time vs. using your slow cooker. Let us know which one is your favorite.

I will start by saying that if you bookmark the above post you’ll have TONS of meals to choose from. Not just meals you can enjoy this month, but all year long.

Now let’s talk about a few fast and easy September Instant Pot recipes we have on a regular rotation here:

If you love Indian food you’ve gotta’ try our Easy Instant Pot butter chicken. Paired with some homemade naan it is great the same day and the day after too.

When my girls come home from school they make Kraft mac and cheese in a pressure cooker almost daily. I taught them how much was needed and if they forget they just pull up the post. 😉

It’s a pretty healthy snack for kids and keeps them satiated until dinner.

You can make it vegetarian too by just omitting the chicken. It is super hearty using baby bellas and fresh green beans. I actually came up with this one while on a trip in our RV. It was a throw together meal using canned chicken which came out surprisingly yummy!

Pressure Cooker Chicken Mushroom Casserole

Chicken is kinda’ a staple in our home. That and ground beef I guess. When I think of a new recipe I gravitate toward them, maybe because they’re inexpensive and that’s what I grew up on.

That and anything thrown together to make a casserole. lol Yes, I grew up in the 80’s when those were all the rage. They’re coming back with a vengeance though!!

I’ve made this in my RV too because it’s so easy. You can use fresh or canned chicken, whatever you have works really.

Hi Justine, I just got a Ninja Foodie OP301. I like cooking simple, not liking a lot of ingredients. I came across your website and really like what I see. Looks like you have recipes listed in book or ebook for form but I can't find anyway to get them. Can you please instruct me? The recipe books I find on Amazon are way too fancy and just not what I am looking for. Your recipes. look wonderful. I appreciate your reply. Thanks, Shirley

Hi, I saw you cooking using the stackable pans inside the hot pot. Ours arrived today and now I can't find where this was. Could you please direct me. My husband and I are retired so we don't cook much but are anxious to try fish and vegetables in the stackable pans. Thank you
