This recipe uses the Instant Pot to make quick work of a family friendly dinner recipe. This recipe is calculated for Weight Watchers as well, so be sure to check that info out below.

You can use a few different types of chicken in this recipe…well, you can actually use any kind of chicken you want! You can follow the recipe as is and make your chicken in the Instant Pot. OR if you want to make this recipe even quicker and easier for busy weeknights, you can use already cooked chicken or roasted chicken you made previously!

When I make these chicken bowls I usually have chicken already prepped. You can make the easiest shredded chicken in the slow cooker or you can use the slow cooker to make a roasted chicken!

Feeling like you don’t want to cook the chicken at all? Just pick up a rotisserie chicken on the way home from work and you’ll be that much farther ahead of the game for this easy recipe.

Here’s what you’ll need to make my favorite chicken bowls:

This recipe has some ingredients that are a little more common in Asian cuisine so if you cook with them a lot you’ll probably have them on hand, if not you might need to check out the Asian cuisine section in your local grocery store. None of them should be hard to find so don’t get discouraged!

We will be using chicken breasts, bok choy, snow peas, carrots, water, rice wine vinegar, miso, sesame oil, honey, ginger, soy sauce, sesame seeds, and cooked quinoa to make this delicious recipe for my favorite Weight Watchers chicken bowls.

How to make Weight Watchers chicken bowls:

If you are using prepared chicken just be sure to skip that step in the process. We’ll be starting with the chicken so if yours is already cooked obviously you don’t need to do that a second time.

While the rest of the ingredients are cooking you can make sure your quinoa is prepping if it’s frozen, thaw it out according to the package ingredients or you can cook it from dry and have it ready to go when it’s time to build the chicken bowls.

First, put the steamer basket or accessory into the Instant Pot, add 3/4 cups of water and put the chicken breasts in the basket. Put on the lid and make sure the vent is sealed.

Pressure cook on High Pressure setting for 8 minutes. Make sure to press cancel when the timer goes off and do a quick release of the pressure.

Take off the lid when the pressure is released and check the internal temperature. Chicken must reach 165 degrees F to be completely cooed. If the chicken is not quite done you can close the lid and let it stand for 5 minutes and recheck.

Once the chicken is done, move it to the cutting board to be sliced for the bowls!

Now we need to put the bok choy and the snow peas into the Instant Pot, put them into the steamer basket and pressure cook on High Pressure setting for 2 minutes.

Cancel the keep warm setting and do a quick release when the time is up! Put the veggies aside and let them cool slightly.

While the veggies coo, whisk together the water, vinegar, miso, sesame oil, honey, ginger, and soy sauce for the dressing.

Slice up the carrots and arrange them along with the the bok choy, snow peas, and quinoa in four bowls.

Divide everything evenly so that the points are correct. Finally, add your chicken and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Drizzle with dressing, about 1 1/2 tablespoons per bowl, and serve!
