If you haven’t heard of the Instant Pot recipes craze, then you came to the right place today!

One great thing about having my in-laws visit, is that I always pickup a few delicious Middle Eastern style recipes that taste like I’ve spent hours cooking them, but are actually quite simple. This Moroccan Apricot Chicken Recipe is just that.
Ever since I first tried cooking a whole chicken in my slow cooker, I’ve been hooked. It gives me the most delicious, most juicy and moist chicken ever, hands down. They key is to stick it under the broiler for a bit before slow cooking it. This locks in the meat’s natural juices, and helps deliver an absolutely decadent meal. However, if you prefer a more crispy skinned exterior, simply do the broiling process after the chicken is slow cooked.

Brisket is notoriously a fatty meat, but I’ve altered the traditional Braised Brisket recipe to make it a lot leaner and healthier. The key step is getting the flat, first-cut section of the meat. It’s a great way to trim a good bit of fat and calories without sacrificing the flavor. Serve this juicy braised brisket with some deliciously tender root vegetables and the white wine and mustard based sauce, and you’ve got yourself one divine, low calorie Hanukkah dinner! Enjoy.
