Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup Header

This pressure cooker homemade chicken noodle soup recipe is the comfort food recipe you need right now. Learn how to make this made-from-scratch recipe starting with a budget-friendly whole chicken.

Over the past couple of years, I have been working on perfecting my chicken noodle soup recipe in my Instant Pot.

I realize that May might seem like an odd month to post a chicken noodle soup recipe, but I have to say that this is the comfort food dish you need during this chaotic time in history.

After a particularly difficult day, on social media, I decided that I needed to socially distance myself from Facebook to protect my mental health and limit my news consumption.

I was feeling a little blue about all of this and decided that a bowl of soup was just what I needed to practice some nourishing self-care.

If you are on the struggle bus too, I’d love to point you to this beautiful image that I found today that I have shared with my own family and friends.

It reminded me that certain things are in my control (like limiting my time on social media, setting good boundaries, implementing healthy routines) and certain things are out of my control right now (like other people’s social distancing, other people’s social media, other people’s motives, and how other people feel).

Isn’t that such a good reminder today?

One way we can practice self-care is by nourishing our body. 

Just in case you missed it, I have linked to the two images that my physician shared with me on how we can build our own immunity right now.

Some of it may seem pretty basic, but I think many of us are out of sorts and need a little nudge in the right direction.

It also, just so happens,  that this chicken noodle soup is the perfect remedy for treating yourself well today.

Instant Pot Chicken Noodle Soup

A Quick Note About Instant Pot Accessories I Recommend For Your Soups

I’m not big on telling you to buy stuff right now so if I share anything, I really stand behind it.

First, make sure that you have a good sealing ring on your Instant Pot.

Over time, the seal can become stretched out and take longer to come to pressure because it isn’t fitting as tightly.

This is the replacement set I bought and I love that you can assign a color to your sweet dishes and a color to your savory ones.

The other recommendation is for you to purchase a glass lid for your pot.

It is really hard to serve a soup supper without a lid that every family member can easily take on and off.

You will also love having this lid when you are doing anything with that sauté function or when you are back to entertaining again.

The last accessory is one that will save you time spent on dishes.

This plastic storage lid is essential for a big pot of soup or stew. 

Once you are done cooking, just pop this lid on and store it in your fridge.

I’m still campaigning for an additional insert, over here, so I can still use my pressure cooker when I’m storing dishes with this lid, but for now I just try to rotate our menu accordingly.

Let me show you how I make this homemade soup that’s made with incredible speed thanks to the pressure cooking process.

Once you try this great recipe, I have a feeling that it will be your new soup go-to when you are sick or feeling run down.

Pressure Cooking Chicken For Chicken Noodle Soup

This recipe starts with a whole chicken that I simmer in two cups of chicken stock.

You will seal your Instant Pot and cook the chicken on HIGH for 25 minutes.

While it cooks, chop three medium-sized carrots (or the equivalent in baby carrots) and three stalks of celery. I also chop parsley (the flat-leaf Italian parsley is my favorite) and set that aside while your chicken cooks.

If you are gluten-free, you can prepare your favorite gluten-free noodles (this noodle company is my favorite for a great soup noodle that has the right taste and consistency) on the stove top.

For everyone else, prepare your favorite egg noodles on the stovetop.

Want to switch up your soup game? Try ramen or rice noodles instead! 

I always store my noodles separate from my broth because it helps the noodles not get mushy or take the integrity away from that delicious broth.

Cooked Chicken for Pressure Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

Once the chicken is done cooking, no need to wait for a natural release, just CAREFULLY release the steam after it beeps.

Remove the chicken and set aside.

Skim the fat, if you would like, and remove any bones or skins that might have fallen off your bird.

Cooking Vegetables on High Pressure For Chicken Noodle Soup

To the hot broth, add your chopped celery and carrots.

Put the lid back on (make sure that your pressure cooker seal is back in place if it has come off) and then cook these veggies on HIGH pressure for 2 minutes.

Diced Chicken for Pressure cooker Chicken Noodle Soup

While these cook, dice up your chicken (or do shredded chicken if that’s how you prefer it!).

If you like only white meat in your chicken noodle soup, you can set those chicken thighs and wings aside for another meal (I usually make chicken salad sandwiches or fancy paninis with pesto & provolone out of them).

Once the pressure cooker beeps, quickly release the pressure again.

Switch to the low sauté setting to keep your soup broth warm.

At this point, I add the rest of the box of chicken stock (you should have two cups left) and then two more additional boxes.

Squeeze in a lemon and add your chopped parsley. 

Season and taste, season and taste, season and taste.

Now that the noodles are cooked, you can add the noodles to each individual bowl.

Pour your warmed delicious chicken noodle soup base over the top and sprinkle with a little more fresh parsley.

While that seems like a lot of steps, this is quick and easy. I’ve made this so many times that, I swear, I could make this in my sleep.

Over time, I am sure you will adapt this to your own personal tastes and preference. 

Your bowl, definitely, doesn’t need to be identical to mine.

I can usually have a huge pot of soup that we can enjoy all week, ready in less than an hour of preparation and cook time.

gluten-free chicken noodle soup don’t have a slow cooker? try this recipe with a rotisserie chicken instead!

Don’t have an Instant Pot?

No worries!

You can try this quick stovetop chicken noodle soup made with vegetables cooked in olive oil (to add a deeper flavor) and a grocery store rotisserie chicken.

It has been such a joy to hear from so many of you that you are making my recipes in your kitchens right now. In some weird way, it makes me feel so much closer to each of you to know that you think of my site when caring for your family.

For now, consider this recipe the virtual hug that I am giving each of you today. I can’t wait to hear what you think of this week’s recipe!

  3. While the chicken cooks, dice your carrots and celery in ½” thick rounds and chop your parsley. Set aside.
  4. On your stovetop, prepare your noodles. Do not overcook (undercooked is better so they don’t get mushy). After they have cooked, drain and set aside.
  5. When the cook time is up, quick release (QR) the valve.
  6. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board and set aside.
  7. Carefully, add the celery and carrots to your pressure cooker. Make sure your pressure valve is back in place. Lock on the lid again and cook on HIGH pressure for 2 minutes.

Squeeze a lemon into the broth and add fresh chopped parsley. Add salt and pepper to taste. Switch to medium or low saute and warm up the finished broth.
  10. To each bowl, add noodles, chicken soup, and fresh parsley.
  11. Follow my advice in the post for storage. Leftover soup, without the noodles, can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week or frozen for several months.

Chicken Shawarma Sheet Pan Meal

Chicken Shawarma Sheet Pan Meal Header

 

Put boneless skinless chicken thighs to work with this oven roasted shawarma recipe. Marinated baked chicken is the perfect pairing with pita bread and fresh veggies for an easy weeknight meal your whole family will love.

As we have settled into our quarantine lifestyle, I’ve been trying to make time and space for trying some new recipes in our house. The recipes that I’ve been picking have become some of my favorite restaurant classics, but replicated in my little home kitchen. Not only does it save a ton of money, it also can be doubled or tripled for a week of lunches.

I have never attempted a chicken shawarma recipe before, but had a craving for this delicious Middle Eastern dish.

What better opportunity to try this recipe out while we are practicing a little social distancing.

whisking the chicken shawarma marinade Marinating Chicken Shawarma

This is such an easy dish to prepare because it requires simply marinating it in garlic, lemon juice, and spices. Then go about your typical work day and tuck this  in the refrigerator until the dinner hour.

Once you are reading to eat, line a baking sheet with foil and cook the chicken until it is cooked through.

Finish by thinly slicing the chicken pieces and placing them on a large platter.

Chicken Shawarma can be stuffed into a pita or served alongside fresh veggies and hummus, if you are trying to keep your carbs down.

If you haven’t had chicken shawarma before, you are in for a treat. 

Here are a few commonly asked questions about this classic chicken dish.

Chicken Shawarma Sheet Pan Meal

What is Chicken Shawarma?

Chicken Shawarma is a garlicky poultry dish that is served on pitas.

Typically, the chicken is marinated in warming spices (cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, cumin, etc..) and then cooked on a rotisserie.

To adapt this recipe for the home cook, we are preparing it on a sheet pan instead.

While the spice combination remains the same, the ease of preparation is infinitely easier since everything can bake in the oven while you chop up your veggie sides.

If you are gluten-free or on a low-carb diet though, you can serve your shawarma on a bed of greens instead.

Another dipping option, that we rely upon, is purchasing mini naan instead.

This size seems perfect for getting just enough fun carbs for our family while keeping to our lower carb lifestyle.

Prepping Chicken Shawarma on a Sheet Pan

Why Does This Dish Use Chicken Thighs Instead of Chicken Breasts?

Chicken breasts are leaner, but they dry out quickly, especially if you plan to reheat this dish.

I do recommend using the boneless skinless chicken thighs instead because they hold up so much better to the marinade and the baking.

Can I Add a Sauce to My Chicken Shawarma?

While I feel like this dish stands up on its own, you can definitely add a delicious tahini sauce to drizzle on your shawarma.

In a small bowl, mix together a ½ cup of plain Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of tahini, 2 teaspoons of lemon juice, ½ a teaspoon of salt, and a minced garlic clove.

You can drizzle this yogurt sauce in your pita or on top of your salad as a light dressing.

What Side Dishes Are Good With My Chicken Shawarma?

If you haven’t made your own hummus before, you have to try this easy food processor hummus. I love to serve this with fresh red peppers, cucumbers, and mini naan for a side.

Other great options?

How about this Greek Quinoa Salad or try making these easy bread machine pitas for a fun little quarantine project with the kids.

How Can I Make Vegetarian Shawarma?

If you are looking for a plant-based shawarma, I recommend giving this sheet pan veggie shawarma a spin in your kitchen. It has all the flavors of the chicken shawarma without the meat.

45 Easy Recipes Using Pantry Ingredients

Wednesday, March 25th, 2020

Are you looking for quick and easy pantry recipes that your whole family will love? Check out these simple meals to incorporate your canned & dry goods into your recipes. Feel free to pin and bookmark this post to make the most of your budget.

Here is some honest truth, I have never been good about tracking what I have stocked in my pantry. Just like most moms, I am often in survival mode and am just proud if I get our grocery shopping and menu planning done for the week.

With this unique experience of being home more, I have been taking stock of what we have and how we can make the most of it in these upcoming days.

I loved these printable kitchen inventory sheets for helping figure out our meals, as our grocery stores struggle to keep so many items stocked.

Free Spice Label Printables

We also have free printable labels to organize your spice rack. I plan to revisit my spice cabinet this month too!

This is a great time to take inventory of all those items that we seem to forget to purchase (or have multiple items if you are anything like me!). Jot down all those spices, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, rice vinegar, salad dressings, and all those other condiments that you might forget to track.

I also am trying to stock items like bottled lemon juice and lime juice, in case we don’t have access to citrus fruit. These can really add another great layer to your recipes.

I wanted to offer some new ways to use those pantry ingredients today so I reached out to my blogging friends to create this fun list of recipes to try.

Pan Seared Oven Roasted Steak Recipe

Wednesday, February 26th, 2020

Pan Seared Oven Roasted Steak Recipe Header

Tired of paying premium prices for a filet mignon at your local steakhouse? Learn how easy it is to make a steak that tastes just as good at home. Once you master this cast iron skillet method, you can enjoy a weekly steak without the guilt. Try my pan seared oven roasted steak method.

If there is one thing I love, it is creating a restaurant experience in the comfort of my own home with a price tag that fits our budget. 

Today’s post is less recipe and more about a quick and easy way to prepare a sirloin filet (or rib eye steak) at home.

Raw Steak in Skillet

The truth is, if you have a beautiful cut of meat, the last thing you want to do is mask that delicious flavor.

A beautiful steak needs only to be dressed simply with a little oil, salt, pepper, and a butter finish to be more than worthy of your taste buds. This filet mignon recipe is perfect for two and ideal for a small dinner party or date night at home.

I had hoped to have a beautiful picture tutorial for you, but this steak cooks so quickly that I am going to type out my tips instead.

Even with the tomatoes and roasted asparagus as our sides, we still will have dinner ready in about fifteen minutes! 

Pan Seared Oven Roasted Steak Recipe Header

Pan Seared Oven Roasted Steak Recipe

That will be even less time than it would take to haul everyone in the car for a meal out, not to mention the incredible savings you will experience by dining at home in your very own dining room!

Here are my recommendations for that “steak house” experience at home!

Please note, these are directions for cooking a filet mignon.

The same technique can be applied to other cuts

Cooked Filet in Cast Iron Skillet

Pick the Right Type of Pan

Since we are need to sear the steak and then finish it in the oven, you want to make sure that you have a pan that can do this task well.

I love a good heavy-bottom skillet that does not have a plastic handle or a cast iron skillet for this job.

My cast iron skillet has been SO good to me over the years.  

This is definitely a work horse in my kitchen and it is also a great tool to use when outdoor grilling for delicate meats or when mixing up a big batch of fresh veggies so you don’t have to cook in a hot kitchen in the summer.

It has truly been the best $20 I have ever spent and I know that you will feel the same way especially after cooking your steaks on it.

Let Your Meat Rest At Room Temperature

It is really important that you don’t put cold meat into your hot pan. 

I like to pull my steaks out about 30 minutes before I plan to cook them and leave them on my counter.

This helps to heat your steak more evenly and helps prevent the risk of your meat drying out before you have finished cooking it.

Get Your Pan Screaming Hot…Even Hotter Than You Think

If you want a beautiful sear on your meat, you need to be sure that your skillet is hot enough to add that beautiful caramelization on your meat.

Make sure to turn your oven up to high heat and let the skillet warm for five minutes before you begin cooking your meat.

When you place your meat in the pan it should stick and you should hear a nice sizzle on the outside. That’s exactly what you want to hear and see happening to your meat.

Dry & Season Your Meat Well

One of the best tools in your arsenal for creating the perfect steak is a paper towel.

If you want a beautiful sear on your meat, you need the meat to be dry and not wet, otherwise you risk just having your meat steam in its own juices rather than sear.

Dry the meat with a heavy-duty paper towel and then brush the steak with oil.

I love to use canola oil (although you can use olive oil in a pinch) and then season your meat simply with salt and pepper.

Once your pan has to come to that screaming hot phase, drop your seasoned meat into the pan and let it sear for two minutes on each side.

Don’t Move Your Steak

Once you have dropped it in, the first thing I know I want to do is to shift the meat and take a peek at it.

Just don’t.

Let the meat get the golden sear it needs for two minutes on each side, giving it a beautiful crust on the outside, and keeping your meat perfectly pink on the inside.

Butter Makes Everything Better

A butter finish makes all dishes a little more beautiful, don’t you think?

A dab of butter is a beautiful finishing touch to the steak before sliding it into the oven to finish cooking.

Craving a garlic flavor? After you brush your steaks with oil, take a clove of garlic and rub it against the raw steak to add that garlic flavor (without burning Consider making this simple garlic butter compound for your recipes.

Avoid Overcooking

A meat thermometer is your best friend. I still rely on mine for my steaks.

I love my steak to be medium rare, but cook it to the consistency that you love the most.

Keep in mind that Rare is 120 degrees, Medium is 125 degrees, and Medium Well is 130 degrees.

Always Let Your Meat Rest

If you cut into your meat right when you take it off the pan, chances are that all the juiciness will just pour out on your cutting board or plate.

Cover your steak with a little tin foil and let it rest for ten minutes before diving in. 

I promise you will have a much more flavorful bite if you just wait the recommended amount of time.

Another Steak Recipe Option

Prefer to grill steaks? Try this easy steak marinade made with soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, oil, and lemon juice. This is the best steak marinade and perfect for inexpensive cuts like marinated flank steak, strip steak, or a flat iron steak.

3 Ways to Cook Chicken Breasts From Frozen

3 Ways to Cook Chicken Breasts From Frozen Header

Looking for a fast way to cook frozen chicken? Today I’m sharing my foolproof recipe to bake chicken. No need to thaw chicken for this recipe. Learn how to safely oven bake chicken, cook frozen chicken in your slow cooker, and tips for cooking frozen chicken in your pressure cooker.

If I had to point a finger at where I began to realize the beauty in make-ahead meals, I would point it to my bag of chicken I cook each week for our family. 

This easy cooking tutorial takes just a few moments of effort to have a container full of prepared meat for sandwiches, wraps, or to be eaten on it’s own with veggies and fruit.

The best part is that with my easy technique, you can prepare chicken in bulk for your week right from it’s frozen state.

3 Ways to Cook Chicken Breasts From Frozen

For our family of four, I prepare three pounds of chicken each week (one frozen bag of chicken breasts from ALDI, to be exact!) and we usually plow through these three pounds by Wednesday or Thursday of the week.

I never have any leftover because it is my go-to for making wraps for my husband to take for his lunch and it is the go-to for my kid’s busy activity nights.

I started making a habit of taking the chicken out first when I brought in my groceries and getting it roasting as I put the rest of the food away.

For five minutes of prep work, it has saved us at least a hundred bucks a month. Just think how much I am saving by eating at home instead of a Panera visit!

Before we begin, here are a few commonly asked questions about cooking frozen chicken!

What are the guidelines for safely cooking frozen chicken?

It is important to follow the USDA guidelines when preparing poultry. The USDA, specifically states, “Do not cook frozen chicken in a slow cooker or in the microwave; thaw it before cooking.”

Chicken can be cooked though from the frozen state in the oven or on the stove. Expect that your cooking time will be about 50% longer, if you do not thaw your chicken first.

Can you put frozen chicken in your crockpot?

No, the USDA advises NOT to put frozen chicken in your slow cooker because the internal temperature does not rise fast enough to meet food safety standards.

How long is frozen chicken good for?

A bag of frozen chicken, from your supermarket, should last approximately 9 months, according to the USDA.

Prepared cooked chicken though should be used within three months of freezing.

What is the safe internal temperature of chicken?

The safe internal temperature for cooked chicken is 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius). A meat or instant-read thermometer is always your best guide. This is my favorite meat thermometer.

How long can you keep cooked chicken in the refrigerator?

Properly stored, cooked chicken will last for 3 to 4 days in the refrigerator.

Glass containers, with airtight lids, are my favorite for storing. When taking to potlucks, I rely on these inexpensive plastic containers for transporting.

Here are 3 techniques to cook frozen chicken breasts!

3 Ways to Cook Chicken Breasts From Frozen Seasoned On Cookie Sheet Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Seasoning Frozen Chicken in the Oven Baked Frozen Chicken Baked Frozen Chicken

How to Bake Frozen Chicken

I have had people ask me at potlucks and gatherings how I bake my frozen chicken. After testing different temperatures of cooking frozen chicken and spice combinations, I am thrilled to share my favorite recipe.

This is the recipe I rely upon for topping salads, making chicken wraps, or as an accompaniment to a brown rice bowl.

Spread your frozen chicken breasts on two cookie sheets.

Don’t love the clean-up?

Consider lining the cookie sheets with parchment paper or a nonstick heavy duty aluminum foil.

Personally, I love these parchment squares because they make the whole clean-up process a little easier..

Brush or drizzle your chicken breasts with olive oil, salt generously, and finish with your favorite seasoning.

Frozen Chicken Breast Baked and Sliced

My secret ingredient (and this is no endorsement- just a HUGE fan!) is this Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil Garlic seasoning mix.

I found it in the spice aisle and it makes such a fantastic dry rub on the chicken that it tastes as good as anything you would get in a restaurant.

Since it is salt-free, I layer on the salt just the way I like and this helps to enhance the flavor of the chicken.

Baking frozen chicken is safe, according to the USDA.

How to Boil Frozen Chicken

Boiling chicken is another safe and effective way to prepare shredded chicken for your recipes. In a large pot, add a cup of chicken stock (or broth) and 4-5 frozen chicken breasts.

Bring this all to a boil and then simmer for 20 minutes or until you have reached 165° Fahrenheit (75° Celsius).

Remember, if you are unsure if your chicken is done that a meat thermometer is a cook’s best friend.

Instant Pot Shredded Chicken from MomAdvice.com

 

How to Pressure Cook Frozen Chicken

You may recall my tutorial for preparing frozen chicken in your pressure cooker. My Instant Pot Shredded Chicken recipe is one of our most popular and is my favorite meal prep technique.

You can read a full tutorial on pressure cooking frozen chicken (or fresh chicken) in this post.

This recipe calls for 1 cup chicken broth on the bottom and resting seasoned frozen chicken on top.

Once again, cooking time on frozen chicken varies, based on the size of the breast.

If the chicken breasts are small, 12 minutes of cooking time at high pressure works great.

Average size chicken breasts will take about 14 minutes.

Large pieces are best at 16 minutes.

Be sure to visit the entire tutorial to learn more.

Once the Instant Pot beeps, make sure your pressure cooker turns off (and doesn’t start the, “keep warm,” setting. Allow it to release naturally for ten minutes.

Once the ten minutes of pressure release are done, you can open the pot and shred your chicken.

I like to pour a bit of the chicken broth (or stock) on top to help the meat retain its moisture.

Gluten-Free Pad Thai With Shrimp

Friday, February 21st, 2020

Pad Thai Recipe Header

Did you know you can make this takeout favorite at home? Try my gluten-free pad thai recipe for an easy weeknight dinner at home that your whole family will love!

When I went gluten-free I never realized how exciting it would be to recreate some of my favorite gluten-filled dishes at home.

Today I am sharing a Gluten-Free Pad Thai with Shrimp recipe that you can create in your own kitchen. The best part is that your guests will never guess that this delicious dish is gluten-free!

Have you ever had Pad Thai? It is one of my favorite dishes to order at thai restaurants.

If you haven’t, you are in for a delicious treat. Pad Thai, according to Wikipedia, is a stir-fried rice noodle dish commonly served as a street food and at casual local eateries in Thailand.

It is made with soaked dried rice noodles which are stir-fried with eggs and chopped firm tofu, fish sauce, dried shrimp, garlic or shallots, red chili pepper and palm sugar. It is then served up with with lime wedges and often chopped roasted peanuts.

Pad Thai With Sriracha and Peanuts

 

Pad Thai Recipe (Gluten Free)

If you have made fried rice at home, you will understand the concept of adding veggies and then scrambling eggs to your dish.

If you lack the coordination to scramble the eggs on one side of the pan and keeping your cooked veggies on the other, you can simply remove the veggies and scramble them separately.

While I love the delicateness of the rice noodle, I prefer a more linguine-style noodle in this dish to balance the lightness of the shrimp and because these hold up well to a lot of reheating.

I rely on Tinkyada noodles to create this dish because their texture happens to be my favorite in the gluten-free pasta world. You are looking for the Fettucini Style Pad Thai Noodles at your grocery store.

Here are a few commonly asked questions about this dish!

Pad Thai

Are soy sauce and fish sauce gluten-free?

Be sure that you are using a gluten-free soy sauce and fish sauce.

Personally, I rely upon the La Choy Lite Soy Sauce as my soy sauce substitute, but there are reports that some people have a reaction to this. I have not, but be sure to do your own research on what product will fit your gluten-free needs best.

If I don’t want to make the sauce, do they sell prepared pad thai sauce?

You can definitely purchase a prepared sauce, but be sure to read the label if you need a gluten-free pad thai sauce.

I don’t like shrimp, what other options can I put in my pad thai?

You definitely don’t need to put shrimp in your pad thai.

This is one of those recipes that you can customize with what’s leftover in your fridge (proteins or veggies) and what sounds good to you.

Feel free to switch it with chicken, tofu, bell peppers, carrots, extra garlic, chives, or anything else that you need to use up or are craving.

I prefer a peanut sauce. Do you have any recommendations?

The addition of peanut butter always makes everything better, doesn’t it? Check out this sauce for another fun option.

I love these peanut ginger chicken noodles for a different spin on an asian noodle recipe.

The best part about that recipe is that they are delicious hot, cold, or room temperature.

Pad Thai

What are some fun toppings for pad thai?

The fun part about sharing this with your family and friends is that you can also create a variety of toppings so everyone can personalize their dish. I love roasted chopped peanuts, sriracha, fresh limes, and cilantro on mine.

I hope you love this dish as much as we did and can enjoy this during the Lent season…or any season, really! We polished this dish off in no time at all and I can’t wait to make it again. Thanks to these sturdy noodles, the dish reheats beautifully and can be eaten for your lunches or a late night snack!

Looking for a recipe that you can prepare in ten minutes ? Today I’m sharing one of my tried-and-true weeknight dishes that has become a regular part of our menu rotation.

Are you a big fan of fish tacos?

After having some delicious fish tacos, in California, I wanted to enjoy this fish taco treat at home.

These tacos can be created from any white fish, depending on your family’s preference.

Personally, we are a big fans of tilapia that can be found over in the frozen foods aisle.

Not only is tilapia a mild white fish, it also comes with an affordable price tag.

You can also find some additional white fish ideas in the frequently asked questions below.

This weeknight meal is one that I regularly rely on for a meat-free taco night that our whole family loves.
10 Minute Fish Tacos Recipe

10 Minute Fish Tacos Recipe

To prepare the fish quickly and easily, dice up the fish and put it in a medium bowl.

Toss the fish with your favorite spice blend with olive oil.

Spread the fish on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and then cook it at the suggested temperature for 4-6 minutes.

While the fish is cooking, you can prepare a variety of fun toppings.

10 Minute Fish Tacos Topping Ideas

Fun Taco Toppings To Try

Traditional toppings for tacos are fun, but sometimes the taco night needs a little switch up. Try these topping suggestions to make taco nights more fun!

  • Salsa- Add a combination of black beans, tomato, corn, chopped jalapeno chile peppers, and cilantro.
  • Traditional- Toss shredded cabbage with a little olive oil and lime juice.
  • Asian-  Add broccoli slaw, toasted sliced almonds, and bottled Asian vinaigrette.
  • Fruity- Add fresh fruit salsa made with kiwi, red onion, strawberries, and mango.
  • BLT- Add shredded lettuce, bacon, tomato, and mayo.
  • Caprese- Add basil, cubed tomato, cubed mozzarella cheese, and balsamic vinaigrette.
  • Other Fun Toppings- Add Greek yogurt, jarred salsa, guacamole, limes, hot sauce, freshly cracked black pepper, cheese, thinly sliced radishes, fresh cilantro, and shredded lettuce to your taco condiment bar.
  • Fish Taco Sauce Recipe- Looking for a sauce to add to your tacos? Mix together a 1/2 cup sour cream 1/3 cup Mayo, juice from one lime, and a teaspoon of garlic powder. To spice it up, add a little Sriracha sauce or a generous shake of Old Bay seasoning in your sauce.

Here a few other commonly asked questions about this recipe!

10 Minute Fish Tacos With Lettuce 10 Minute Fish Tacos With Lettuce and Tomatoes

If my family doesn’t like tilapia, what are some other mild white fish options for my tacos?

Flounder, hake and tilapia are all white fish with mild taste.

Looking for other options? Snapper, mahi mahi, grouper, flounder, halibut, or cod are also excellent inexpensive options.

If you want to skip the white fish altogether, salmon can also be a great option. I recommend this easy method for broiling salmon for tacos.

I don’t want to bake my fish. Can you tell me how to prepare fish tacos on the stove top?

You can prepare fish tacos in a skillet, if this works better for your family. Spice up your fish, just as you would for the baked version. Make sure that you pat your fish, with a paper towel, before cooking so that it gets a nice crust. Over medium high heat, cook for 4-5 minutes on each side.

Homemade Tilapia Nuggets for Fish Tacos on Sheet Pan

Can I substitute with frozen fish sticks for my tacos?

Baking the fish, as prepared in this recipe, is healthier and takes a lot less time than preparing fish sticks.

If you prefer to use these, preheat your oven to 475ºF.

Line a baking sheet with foil and arrange the fish sticks on baking sheet.

Sprinkle with the seasonings recommended below and bake for 11-13 minutes.

You can also make your own fish nuggets for taco stuffing. This is our family’s favorite panko crusted tilapia nuggets recipe.

How do I remove the fish odor from my home after baking?

Simmer a small pot of water with a few cut lemons to cut the smell.

I’m also a huge fan of this citrus oil for my diffuser

I use it for kitchen scents AND diffuse it in my office in the mornings to wake me up!

Roasted Corn Salsa

What sides are good with fish tacos?

Personally, we are fans of tortilla chips with salsa and guacamole.

Looking for a fresh spin for dipping?

Try my roasted corn salsa as a chip dip or as a topping for your fish tacos.

Shrimp Scampi Recipe Header

This shrimp scampi recipe is easy enough for a weeknight meal and fancy enough to share with dinner guests. Swimming in white wine (or broth), this is a perfect dish to pair with a big loaf of crusty bread and a bowl of cooked pasta. This gluten-free main dish is one you will turn to again and again!

Don’t you love replicating dishes from your favorite restaurants to make at home?

Shrimp Scampi is one of those dishes that I absolutely love when I go out for seafood, but I don’t always love the price tag that comes with it.

As I have been researching, for this recipe, I discovered that scampi are actually tiny, lobster-like crustaceans with pale pink shells. You may see them referred to as langoustines.

Italian cooks, who lived in the U.S.,  ended up swapping out the scampi with shrimp.

And that, folks, is how we have the name today.

Just a fun little trivia for your next dinner party!

Today I wanted to share with you an easy gluten-free shrimp scampi that is a delicious dish you could share, during this Lent season, for a Friday night feast that the whole family will love.

Finished Shrimp Scampi Dish With Lemons

The shrimp can be dredged in a gluten-free flour to add a little bit of coating or they can just be quickly sauteed in the delicious wine and butter sauce, tossed with parsley, and finished with fresh ground black pepper.

Personally, I love to put the shrimp scampi on top of some gluten-free pasta and serve it all with a side of roasted veggies.

Thanks to the garlic in the scampi, it coats and adds flavor to your pasta beautifully.

Slice up a few lemons and dress the plates with a sprig of flat-leaf Italian parsley to really make it feel like restaurant dining.

Here are a few commonly asked questions about this recipe.

Shrimp Scampi Recipe

Finished Shrimp Scampi Dish

What Kind of Wine Should I Use For My Shrimp Scampi?

You will want to use a dry white wine for this recipe. Personally, I prefer a pinot grigio, but I’ve been known to cook this in a buttery chardonnay as well.

If you do not typically purchase wine, a liquor store might be your best option for advice on this one.

I would also advise asking if they have small boxes or bottles of wine that they carry, if you are just planning to cook with the wine and don’t want the expense of a whole bottle.

I Don’t Want to Use Wine. Do You Have Any Recommendations for Substituting Wine in Shrimp Scampi?

If you don’t want to use wine in your dish, chicken broth can be used as a substitution. The flavor will be a little different, but you will achieve similar results.

How Do I Prepare Shrimp for This Dish?

Since we live in the Midwest, we rely heavily on frozen shrimp. You want to make sure that the frozen shrimp you purchase are naw shrimp.

For this recipe, we are using jumbo or extra-large shrimp. Purchasing shrimp that are already peeled and deveined can be a huge time saver.

This shrimp scampi recipe is easy enough for a weeknight meal and fancy enough to share with dinner guests. Swimming in white wine (or broth), this is a perfect dish to pair with a big loaf of crusty bread and a bowl of cooked pasta. This gluten-free main dish is one you will turn to again and again!
Ingredients
  • ½ cup (2½ oz./75 g) all-purpose gluten-free flour (found the gluten-free section of the store), can omit if you prefer to not have a crispy exterior to your shrimp
  • A pinch of red pepper flakes
  • ½ tsp. salt, plus more, to taste
  • ¼ tsp. freshly ground pepper, plus more, to taste
  • 2 Tbs. olive oil, plus more as needed
  • 1½ lb. (750 g) jumbo or extra-large shrimp, peeled and
  • deveined, tails intact
  • 12 Tbs. (1½ sticks) (6 oz./185 g) unsalted butter
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup (2 fl. oz./60 ml) dry white wine
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 Tbs. finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Lemon wedges for serving
Instructions
  1. In a shallow bowl, stir together the flour, red pepper flake, ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper.
  2. In a large fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the 2 Tbs. olive oil.
  3. Toss half of the shrimp in the flour mixture to coat evenly, shaking off the excess. Add the shrimp to a large skillet and cook, turning occasionally, until opaque throughout, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with aluminum foil. Repeat with the remaining shrimp, adding more olive oil to the pan as needed.
  4. Reduce the heat to medium-low. add 2 Tbs. of the butter to the pan and then add garlic, stirring frequently. Cook garlic until it softens and is fragrant but not browned, about 2 minutes.
  5. Add the wine, lemon zest and lemon juice, increase the heat to high and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by half, about 1 minute. Reduce the heat to very low.
  6. Whisk in the remaining 10 Tbs. butter, 1 Tbs. at a time, letting each addition soften into a creamy emulsion before adding more. It will become very creamy, like a sauce.
  7. Add the cooked shrimp to the sauce and mix gently to coat well. The shrimp will turn pink as they finish cooking in the garlic butter sauce. Remove from the heat and season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with the parsley. Serve immediately with lemon wedges and gluten-free pasta.

Overnight Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oatmeal

Thursday, November 21st, 2019

Overnight Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oatmeal from MomAdvice.com Apple season is one of my favorite produce seasons and one of my favorite snacks. Try this slow cooked honeycrisp apple oatmeal that you are going to love for a warm and satisfying breakfast on chilly fall mornings. The best part about all of this though, is my incredible tip for getting creamy oats that won’t burn or stick to your slow cooker.

Have you tried cooking steel cut oats in your slow cooker yet?

Today I wanted to share some tips for making the perfect overnight crock pot apple cinnamon oatmeal for the perfect fall breakfast for entertaining or just for a healthy way to start your day.

I love steel cut oatmeal, but it takes a LONG time to create steel cut oats. Not only that, oatmeal requires constant stirring over medium heat to achieve their best flavor and have a tendency to burn when not monitored.

Today I wanted to share some tips for making steel cut oatmeal in your slow cooker and the one SHOCKING tip for creamier slow cooked oats.

I promise, it’s a game changer.

What’s the Difference Between Steel Cut Oats and Rolled Oats?

Rolled oats and steel cut oats come from the exact same whole cereal grain. The difference is really in how they are processed.

In whole form, they are known as “groats” and both types of oats are separated from their hard outer “hull” for our store shelves.

Here’s where those differences between the two types of oats really come into play. The rolled oats are steamed, to prevent cracking, and then they are rolled through the mill to be flattened.

Steel cut oats are, basically, chopped into pieces rather than going through that process of being flattened.

Are Steel Cut Oats Gluten-Free?

Many of our readers are pursuing that gluten-free life so I’m thrilled to tell you that steel cut oats ARE gluten-free…well, pretty much!

If you are celiac, oats can be processed in factories that are also processing wheat, barley, and rye.

If you are celiac, look for steel cut oatmeal that clearly discloses that on the label to be sure that you are not exposed to any of these allergy triggering ingredients.

Do Steel Cut Oats and Rolled Oats Have the Same Nutritional Value?

Did you guys know that I went to school for dietetics?

Questions like this are my love language.

Often, when it comes to discussing processed foods, we immediately have a knee-jerk reaction that it isn’t good for you.

Can we all blame the Whole30 and Paleo movement for this? Hahaha!

Seriously, in MOST cases, processing means that the food has lost its nutritional value, but that is not the case when it comes to steel cut oats and rolled oats.

In fact, steel cut oats, rolled oats, and quick oats all have the SAME nutritional value.

I do find that steel cut holds up better in an overnight dish, but am thankful quick oats offers the same benefits if I need a nutritious breakfast or lunch.

Honeycrisp Apples

What Types of Apples Should I Use For Overnight Oatmeal?

Often when it comes to baking, I reach for a Granny Smith apple.

When researching different varieties of apples that are best to bake with, I discovered that the Honeycrisp Apple and the McIntosh apple were both great varieties to choose when baking.

How Do I Prevent My Slow Cooker Oatmeal From Getting Burnt or Overcooked?

I admit that I have never had good success with overnight oats.

The oats were usually burnt or overcooked and I always had a hard time getting my slow cooker clean after a batch.

That is why I am so excited to share with you this easy technique to create a double boiler right in your slow cooker:

  • Find a oven-proof dish that you can place inside of your slow cooker and spray it well with a little cooking spray.
  • Place your oatmeal ingredients right inside of the dish and then, using a liquid measuring cup, pour water around the dish to create a water bath. It doesn’t need to be really full, just an inch or so.
  • Set your slow cooker to LOW and you will have perfectly creamy oatmeal with no burnt spots every single time.

I promise you that you will will yield a creamy pot of oats every time.

3-Ingredient Instant Pot Ribs Recipe

Tuesday, November 5th, 2019

3-Ingredient Instant Pot Ribs Recipe from MomAdvice.com

With just 3-ingredients, you can have fall-off-the-bone ribs in minutes using your pressure cooker. 

Sign up for my free weekly newsletter for loads more dinner ideas!

I remember feeling the same way when I got mine and now that I’ve been enjoying it for the last few months, I can honestly say that it has saved us a bundle on dining out thanks to its speedy cooking.

In fact, it has helped me feel more confident taking on dishes that I normally would never try, whether it is because of time constraints or complete intimidation, allowing for a lot more variety in our rather tired menu plan that had I had been executing month after month.

Of all the dishes that we have made in our pressure cooker, I must say that the biggest hit has been these easy 3-ingredient ribs that you can make in your Instant Pot.

That’s right, you can cook pork ribs right in your Instant Pot.

Can you believe it?

Ribs are something I have often thought of adding to our menu plan, but I just didn’t think they could ever taste as good as what we would get out in restaurants especially on a busy weeknight.

I must say though,  these ribs are BETTER than many restaurants we have been to and are fall-off-the-bone tender every single time.

3-Ingredient Instant Pot Ribs from MomAdvice.com 3-Ingredient Instant Pot Ribs from MomAdvice.com

I have done a rack of Baby Back Ribs in my 6-quart Instant Pot and I have even been able to fit up to two racks in this size cooker without any trouble, although it is a much tighter squeeze than a single rack.

 

 

3-Ingredient Instant Pot Ribs Recipe

First, remove the membrane (or the silverskin, as the fancy folks like to call it!)  from the meat. 

Here are a few answers to some frequently asked questions about cooking ribs in your pressure cooker.

How do I Remove the Membrane From Pork Ribs?

Haven’t done this before?

Well, I hadn’t either.

I actually had NO IDEA that you were supposed to do this. 

At some point, I will go back and fix the error of my ways, on these images, but for now you can imagine the pork without this on it.

Looking for a tutorial on this? 

You weren’t the only one!

Here is a great tutorial to help you learn how to do this, easily and safely.

How Can I Fit a Rack of Pork Ribs in My Instant Pot?

Cut your ribs into thirds so you can fit them in comfortably. 

Add a cup of beef broth in your cooker and put your steaming rack inside (that little rack that came with your cooker!).

Can I Fit Two Racks of Pork Ribs in My Instant Pot?

I have only attempted this one time and had no issues adding two racks of ribs in my pressure cooker. Some people say you can fit three racks of ribs in the Instant Pot, but I find two is challenging enough.

Were you good at Tetris?

Maybe you can pull it off!

How Do I Spice Up Pressure Cooked Ribs?

Season your ribs generously with salt and pepper and place these on top of the steaming rack.

Want to add another layer of flavor to these to spice them up even more? Consider adding your favorite spice rub. You can find a lot of fun dry rubs here.

Of course that would be four ingredients (one more than showcased here!)

3-Ingredient Instant Pot Ribs Recipe from MomAdvice.com Lock that baby up, press the meat button on the front of the pressure cooker, and adjust the timer to 30 minutes of high pressure.

If you don’t have a Meat button on your pressure cooker, just cook ribs on HIGH Manual Pressure.

While the ribs are cooking, line a baking sheet with foil and spray with cooking spray.

In a small bowl, pour in your favorite barbecue sauce for brushing.

This barbecue sauce is always a Clark favorite from the supermarket, but I’d love to hear if you think there are any others we should try!

After the Instant Pot beeps, do a quick release on that valve on the top.

Don’t know what a quick release is?

No problem!

This just means that you are going to move your valve from Sealed to Venting and allow all that steam to come out quickly instead of letting it release pressure on its own.

It is going to REALLY steam so make sure you are prepared for that and keep it away from your cabinets, face, and hands.

Also don’t scream because you will want to the first time.

It’s terrifying.

Ain't Nobody Got Time For That

 

Almost all the recipes I do usually say to do this Quick Release pressure cook method, rather than a natural release. 

The big difference between natural and quick release?

Natural Release is when you sit around just waiting and letting that pressure to come down on its own which can take up to 25 minutes!

Ain’t nobody got time for that.

We already had to wait for the pressure to build, people, we can’t sit around waiting for the pressure in this gadget to subside.

We are BUSY!

After the pressure has released, remove the lid and carefully take out those ribs with a pair of tongs and place them on your lined cookie sheet.

Starting with the back of the rib, brush them each generously with sauce.

Turn on your broiler on your oven and slide the ribs in for 3-4 minutes, watching them carefully so they don’t burn.

Flip them over, and repeat with the other side of the ribs.

Finish by cutting them into sections and serving with additional barbecue sauce.

3-Ingredient Instant Pot Ribs Recipe from MomAdvice.com HELLO, HEAVEN! These are SUCH A HIT at our house and I’m guessing they will be a hit at yours too.

Keep in mind, if you are new to the Instant Pot cult (totally a thing!), that it takes awhile for these to come to pressure so give yourself a 20-25 minute allowance before that stated 30-minute cooking time I’m sharing.

We have loved these so much that they have become the new birthday request and we even took a couple of racks of these and my Instant Pot on vacation so we could enjoy this yummy treat while we were renting our beach house on break.

I now make it a regular habit to keep my eyes peeled in our grocery flier for any sales on racks of ribs to keep stocked in our freezer.

I hope to share many more recipes in the upcoming weeks with you! If you are on the hunt for great cookbooks to make the most of your Instant Pot this one, this one, and this one are all excellent books for a newbie Instant Pot cult member (totally a thing- I’m serious!).

I can’t wait to hear what you think of these 3-ingredient Instant Pot Ribs!

  3. Lock the lid, select the Meat function, and set timer for 30 minutes.
