Don’t feel like cooking? Feeling lazy and can’t get motivated to make dinner? You’re in luck. Here are 7 Instant pot lazy dinners (you can also make these in the slow cooker). These lazy recipes require very little of you. In fact, these dinners are just a little more work than ordering a pizza or warming up a frozen burrito.
Instant Pot Lazy Dinners
Raise you’re hand if you’re like me and don’t want to cook in the summer. The kids have it off of school, don’t moms and dads get to take off cooking dinner too? I wish! But a bowl of cereal for dinner 7 days a week is probably not the best thing all summer long. For some reason in the summer I feel especially lazy about cooking dinner. I am all about those types of recipes that have shortcuts, few ingredients and are dump and go. I’ve compiled 7 especially easy Instant Pot recipes. I think you’ll like these!
Instant Pot 3-Ingredient Chicken and Gravy
An almost embarrassingly easy recipe!
Dave said, “This was such an easy and amazing dish. It’s going to be a regular rotation and so fast to put together and cook!!”
Instant Pot 2-Ingredient Balsamic Chicken
With literally only 2 ingredients and the fact that it’s made in the Instant Pot, this recipe couldn’t be easier to make.
Kim said, “OMGoodness! Was sooooo delicious! I have NO leftovers, my husband oinked out on this one.”
Instant Pot Baked Potatoes
Make fluffy, moist baked potatoes in your Instant Pot without foil and in just a few minutes!
Make it a full meal by adding fun toppings or a can of chili. Sharon said, “Turned out great. Served it with bacon, sour cream, butter and scallions.”
Easy Instant Pot Spaghetti Sauce
This recipe tastes AMAZING and only takes a handful of easy ingredients and a few minutes in your pressure cooker. Bonus–if you want to cook a spaghetti squash at the same time as the sauce you can!
Sandy said, “Nice take on Marcella Hazan’s famous sauce! I love to see recipes like this adapted to the pressure cooker.”

Delicious flavors of lasagna with hardly any of the work. This recipe only has 6 ingredients.

Flavorful quinoa with salsa, black beans and sliced avocado. A fast and easy meatless meal or an amazing side dish.

Instant Pot Creamy Salsa Chicken
Tender bites of chicken with an amazing sauce of just 3 ingredients: salsa, lime juice, and sour cream. This chicken and sauce tastes great over rice or rolled up in a tortilla.

You can make this in the slow cooker as well. See the note in the recipe card for instructions.
