November Instant Pot Meal Plan (2018)

Delicious Instant Pot Meals For The Month of November

Here is my November Instant Pot Meal Plan. You’ll find lots of great meals, side dishes, and desserts for these cooler months. There are also some great options for Thanksgiving day.

I added lots of comforting meals to this month’s plan. With this cold weather, comfort meals are the way to go. In my opinion, nothing says comfort like a warm bowl of Chicken and Dumplings. You definitely don’t want to skip this one. It is a family favorite.

There are several yummy seafood meals like Shrimp Etouffee and Coconut Shrimp Curry. Both delicious and easy to make in your Instant Pot. I’ve of course included some delicious chicken dishes as well. Chicken Tikka Masala, Hawaiian Chicken, and White Chicken Chili to name a few.

If a nice, juicy beef meal is what you’re looking for, I’ve got you covered! You have got to try my French Dip Sandwiches recipe this month. It is my family’s favorite Instant Pot meal to date and I know your family will love it too.

As far as Thanksgiving, I included all the sides you’ll need as well as a turkey recipe in case you want to make it in the Instant Pot as well! Happy Thanksgiving!
