3 to 4 pounds of Chicken Breasts
4 to 6 large Russet Potatoes
1 cup Dry White Wine, substitute chicken broth
2 tablespoons Kick it Up Chicken Spice (substitute your favorite spices)
1 teaspoon Pink Salt
1/2 Stick Butter
20 ounces Frozen Vegetables

Place chicken inside Instant Pot liner. Add the wine, then add the kick it up chicken spice. Add trivet and then place washed potatoes on top of trivet (ensure you have poked holes in each potato). Close the lid and make sure it is set to sealing. Cook on HIGH pressure for 19 to 25 minutes depending on how frozen chicken is. Take frozen vegetables out of the freezer and leave on the counter to thaw. Allow 10 minutes of natural pressure and then perform a quick release.

Remove potatoes and chicken and strain and reserve the cooking liquid (wine). Add chicken to the Instant Pot and using a hand mixer, shred the chicken. Divide chicken into equal portions of meal prep containers. Next, add the potatoes to the instant pot and using the hand mixer, mash them. Add salt and butter, along with 1/4 cup of the reserved cooking liquid (wine) and using the hand mixer again, smash until desired texture. Spoon equal amounts into each meal prep container. Add frozen vegetables to each meal prep container. When reheating, add any extra butter, olive oil, or spices to the vegetables and enjoy!
