New Instant Pot recipe on the block – Mojo Chicken!!! Mojo is an extremely popular marinade used in Cuba, Canary Islands, and Puerto Rico consisting of oil, fresh citrus, + lots of garlic! Garlic has many immune boosting benefits. You will absolutely drool over this one pot chicken recipe. Annnnd it’s dairy and gluten free, of course! These flavors are so fresh and flavorful you’ll for sure be coming back for seconds!

This is one of my favorite protein recipes to meal prep ahead of time because I can use the mojo chicken on top of salads or in a veggie blend or with some rice + veggies. The choices are endless! The flavors in this chicken go with so much! This can make your future lunches super easy.
