  1. This is what I’ve been looking for! Mine has always lacked a certain pizazz or actual taste… Haha… Thank you for this gift!

  2. Just made this recipe last night. I used the meat from a whole chicken that I cooked in the instant pot. It all came out perfect! My husband approved, and he is super picky.
