Do you have an Instant Pot? It has quickly become one of my favorite kitchen gadgets the last few years. I use it at least a few times a week and it is great for prepping as well.
One of my favorite things to make in it is shredded chicken and we especially love these shredded chicken tacos. While the cooking and prep time is short on this, you can also make it ahead of time and then reheat when ready to eat. This tastes just as good reheated, making it a good nap time food prep meal. If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can easily recreate this using a crock pot too- would just take a bit longer 😉
If you have an Instant Pot, let me know in the comments! I’d love to share more of these types of recipes!
