Instapot saves the day again! You can’t beat getting chicken cooked in less than 15 minutes WHILE you get to play with baby. I am always trying to find ways to make short cuts to the meals I make because time is sooo short when you are a full-time working and nursing mama.
Can anyone else relate? I feel like as soon as I get off work the rush kicks right in with the commute home, prep bottles for the next day, wash pump parts, nurse babe, then get dinner started so we can start cleaning up, bath time, and to nurse babe one more time before bed. It is fast and furious on weeknights so mealtime has to be simple and quick. I love any meals that I can also use ingredients from to give babe for dinner too. Two birds with one stone, am I right?
For babe I just give her some diced bell pepper that I let cook in the oven with the tostadas and then give her a torn up tortilla and shredded bbq chicken. From there I add a fruit and call it a day!
BBQ Chicken Tostadas
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees.
Place chicken, 1/4 cup bbq sauce, and onions in the instapot and set pressure for 'polutry' or 15 minutes.
Once chicken is cooked stir in garlic powder and black pepper.
Place four tortillas on a pre-greased sheet pan.
Top tortillas with chicken, a drizzle of remaining bbq sauce, cheese, and bell pepper. I opted to add additional red onion.
Place tostadas in the oven and cook for about 8 minutes or until the edges are crisp.
- Traditional Weaning: Babe can still enjoy what the family is eating with a few changes! I like to place a small amount of bell pepper on the corner of the sheet pan where I am cooking my tostadas to soften them up in the oven. For serving, I give babe the cooked diced bell pepper, shredded chicken, a pinch of shredded cheese, and torn up pieces of a tortilla!
- Baby Led Weaning: Place a couple of strips of bell pepper in the corner of your sheet pan with tostadas and allow to cook in the oven. Provide babe with cooked slices of bell pepper, slices of tortilla, a pinch of shredded cheese and shredded chicken.
