31 Days of Frugal Paleo | Pressure Cooker Green Chili Chicken

When I first made this recipe I nearly doubted every aspect of it.

The taste.

The cooking method.

I was happily proved wrong.


Pressure Cooker Chicken with Tomatoes, Cauliflower, Onions, & Green Chili::
serves 4


My changes to the recipe are in pink. 
Ingredient list:
1 sweet yellow onion
1 can of mild green chilies (small can)
1 pound of stew pork (chicken breasts)
1 can of diced tomatoes (mine were fire-roasted with green chilies)
1 big head cauliflower
Apple cider vinegar (Heinz makes one with the mother now)
Salt
Garlic powder
Paprika
Cayenne pepper
Turmeric
Directions: 
Add 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to pressure cooker over medium heat. Peel and chop onion into half-moon slices, add to pot, and cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Dust with salt, garlic powder, and paprika. Splash generously with apple cider vinegar. Open can of green chilies, cut into bite-size pieces, and add to pot. Cut pork into bite-size pieces and add to pot. Dust with salt, garlic powder, and paprika. Open can of tomatoes and add to pot on top of pork. Lock top on pressure cooker. Increase heat to high. After achieving high pressure (may take 5-10 minutes), reduce heat to the lowest level consistent with maintaining high pressure. Cook under high pressure for 15 minutes. Turn off heat, bring pressure down as quickly as possible (about 5 minutes), and remove top. Meanwhile, cut cauliflower florets into bite-size pieces. Rinse and then dust with salt, garlic powder, Cayenne pepper, and Turmeric. Add cauliflower to pot. Lock top on pressure cooker. Increase heat to high. After achieving high pressure (may take 5 minutes), reduce heat to the lowest level consistent with maintaining high pressure. Cook under high pressure for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, bring pressure down as quickly as possible (about 5 minutes), and remove top. Transfer food to a plate with a ladle and enjoy!

This was even better the next day for lunch. It was very filling and Jeremy even like it!
