Organic Chicken with succulent veggies in an Instapot

All ingredients are organic

2 cups water

1 whole chicken

¼ piece of pumpkin

1 cup carrots

1 red onion

2 cloves garlic

1 cup sliced sweet potatoes

½ tbsp sea salt

1 tbsp black pepper

1 tbsp oregano

1 tbsp turmeric

Add two cups water inside the InstaPot, add chicken, sprinkling salt on top and all vegetables starting with the potatoes, then the pumpkin and carrots on top. Add more salt and all spices spreading them all over, cover pot and turn on setting for 8 minutes. Open and serve!

*The Middle-Eastern spice blend called za’atar ingredients are: sesame seeds, ground sumac, and dried za’atar (an herb with a savory-thyme-oregano flavor). You can buy za’atar blends in Middle-Eastern markets, but you can also make it at home. In the blend shown above, thyme and oregano or marjoram stand-in for the za’atar herb, which is rarely available in the United States. To make about 1/2 cup of za’atar, put 3 Tbs. dried thyme, 1 Tbs. lightly toasted sesame seeds, 1 Tbs. ground sumac, 1/2 tsp. dried oregano or marjoram, and 1/4 tsp. kosher salt in a spice grinder. Pulse a few times to mix and break up some of the seeds—there should still be many whole seeds visible. Store in a cool, dark place for up to six months. If sumac is unavailable, substitute 2 Tbs. dried lemon peel.
