Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice Greek Chicken Bowl!
I know there are so many people who have become huge Instant Pot fans, so I’m having fun converting some of my favorite Slow Cooker Recipes into Instant Pot Recipes! Sometimes (when I don’t have time to take new photos, or if the ingredients don’t change much) I’ll just update the old recipe to add the Instant Pot directions. But I never loved the photos for my Slow Cooker Cauliflower Rice Greek Chicken Bowl so I was happy I could take new photos for these very tasty Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice Greek Chicken Bowls! And if you still prefer using the slow cooker, you can find those instructions here.
And no surprise that I would like this recipe so much, because my fondness for Greek Lemon Chicken and Greek Salad is pretty well documented on this blog! The chicken cooks quickly in a mixture of lemon juice and zest, chicken stock, Greek Seasoning, olive oil, Greek Oregano, and a little black pepper, then the chicken is shredded apart and returned to the liquid to keep warm and absorb all those great flavors while you finish making the Greek Salsa and the tasty cauliflower rice.
I love this with extra Feta cheese; take your choice on that! And if you like this recipe but it’s too hot outside for cauliflower rice, you might like Instant Pot Low-Carb Greek Chicken Tacos instead!
How to Make Instant Pot Cauliflower Rice Greek Chicken Bowls:
(Scroll down for complete printable recipe. Slow Cooker Instructions are in the recipe below as well.)
- Trim the chicken and cut each piece into 2 or 3 lengthwise strips and put into the Instant Pot.
- Zest two lemons and then squeeze the juice. Combine lemon juice, lemon zest, Greek Seasoning (affiliate link), olive oil, chicken stock, Greek Oregano (affiliate link), and a little fresh ground black pepper and pour over the chicken.
- Lock lid on the Instant Pot and set to MANUAL, HIGH PRESSURE, 8 minutes. Then do NATURAL RELEASE for 10 minutes before you release the rest of the pressure.
- Let chicken cool on a cutting board, then shred it apart with two forks. (If it seems like there’s too much liquid in the Instant Pot, cook on SAUTE / HIGH HEAT for a few minutes to reduce the liquid.)
- Put Chicken back into the flavorful liquid in the Instant Pot.
- Chop cucumbers, tomatoes, olives, and red onion and combine with Feta and Italian Dressing to make the Greek Salsa.
- Chop up an onion and a green bell pepper and saute in a little olive oil. Then add two 10 oz. bags frozen cauliflower rice (or chop up a head of cauliflower in the food processor if you prefer.)
- Season the cauliflower rice with Greek Seasoning, salt, and a little black pepper and cook just until the cauliflower is hot and some water has evaporated (a bit longer for fresh cauliflower.)
- To serve, put some cauliflower rice in the bottom of a bowl, cover with a generous scoop of the Greek chicken and some of the liquid, and top with Greek Salsa.
YUM! Wouldn’t you love this Cauliflower Rice Greek Chicken Bowl for an Instant Pot dinner?
