Instant Pot Chicken Tikka Masala

The Paleo community puts a strong emphasis on taking care of oneself through sleep and rest.  As it has become more and more challenging for me to get through the demands of my day job and take care of my home and the paleo kitties, well, I have sought to become as efficient as possible at doing the things that have to be done.  Cooking has to be done.  I bought an Instant Pot a while back and for months it sat in my closet as I used it once for broth making and I just wasn't as happy as I typically am with my stove top pressure cooker.  

Slowly, I've been giving it a chance to earn a place on the countertop of my small kitchen.  As small as my kitchen is, I have to love an appliance and use it often to give it countertop space.  I love love love Chicken Tikka Masala.  If I go out for Indian food, this is what I order, so I was excited to see a recipe that could be make in the instant pot from The Kitchn.

Chicken with Mushrooms by Martha Stewart

Do you make New Year's Resolutions?  I don't, which is a good thing, or I'd have completely failed a likely resolution of being a better blogger this year.  Wow, nine months of the year have flown by. Work has been keeping me really busy and I find myself wondering when I'll find time to cook much less write about my cooking.  I've been focusing on finding recipes that I consider weeknight dinners in that they can be made in 30 minutes or less and recipes that I can make in my instant pot which is growing on me.  Today's recipe, Martha Stewarts' Chicken with Mushrooms came up in my Facebook feed as a suggestion and the total time of 25 minutes and a pretty picture was enough to get me to print the recipe out.
