Instant Pot Paleo Pumpkin Chicken Chili

If you’re like me and tired of the same ol’ pumpkin spice baking recipes this season - this Instant Pot Pumpkin Chicken Chili is a great savoury option and the perfect way to switch things up!

If you’re following a Paleo diet, you’re definitely in luck, because it’s also a fully paleo recipe! It’s super high in protein and low in carbohydrates (it’s basically chicken and vegetables), rather than a typical chili that uses beans.

But, don’t worry! It is still very filling and very, very satisfying.

For All My Carb Lovers (Like Myself):

I actually kicked myself a few times because I totally forgot to buy some fresh bread to serve with this chili, but take it from me, it’s truly perfect when paired with some warm crusty bread for dipping. So, if carbs are your thang, I highly recommend serving this up with a side of warm bread of your choosing. (You can thank me later.)

Can I Swap Canned Pumpkin For Fresh?

Let’s face it, I’m lazy AF and don’t have the time to do all the work it takes to scoop out the seeds, bake and puree a whole pumpkin myself. #teameasyoverhere! But, yes! Although I personally like to use canned pumpkins over whole ones, you can absolutely swap out the canned pumpkin in this recipe for the same amount of cooked pumpkin - if you’re into that sort of thing.
