Blood Orange Chicken (Pressure Cooker)

separator

My mom sent me a beautiful pressure cooker- slow cooker- do it all space ship looking thing when I told her my CrockPot died mid bone broth.
A super nice & generous early birthday present, the Breville Fast Slow Pro.

Obviously first thing I made was bone broth. In two hours, perfect, ridiculously rich & aromatic broth that gels when chilled. Ok, enough about the machine, let’s talk about food.

I bought a bag of blood oranges on sale at Whole Foods, for $6! Amazing right! They are however reallllyyy ripe so I’ve been using them up fast.
My mom’s restaurant, Green Gables Cafe, makes a signature dish, the Turkey Vaca Frita. A healthy rendition of a Cuban Classic, pulled turkey breast tossed in lots of caramelized onions, garlic, lemon juice & cilantro. I was going to re-create this with chicken, blood oranges & in 30 minutes. Boom. Challenge on.

Luckily my new space ship has a saute setting and I was able to caramelize the onions & garlic in the pot, so this was truly a jiffy to make & the result was a sweet, refreshing dish that easily lends itself to a variety of side dishes.

Serve! We had it with rustic roasted vegetables & bone broth rice for the boys.
The next day I had the left overs with plantain flat bread!
