Instant Pot Chicken Paella
  • The original recipe uses saffron. I haven't bought saffron in years, the recipe would probably be better with a pinch, but I left it out. I keep my food budge pretty strict and with two growing boys, I spend more on making snacks than expensive spices. 
  • I found that this was best the same day. The leftovers reheated well in the microwave, but this dish was delicious right out of the Instant Pot. I feel this way with most chicken recipes. Reheated chicken just doesn't taste as good as the same day it's cooked. 
  • This is made for a 6 quart Instant Pot. However, I'm cheap and have a 3 quart Instant Pot. I use my 3 quart for a lot of recipes. As long as it doesn't go above the cooking line, it's fine. 
  • I like that this makes enough for a week of lunches. Making meals with enough leftovers is a must for my food budget. 
  • I feel like this could benefit from a little heat, maybe a bit of Tony's or hot sauce when served.
