To Assemble


  1. Add cubed chicken to pressure cooker pot.  Add remaining ingredients for chicken to the pot and stir.  Arrange chicken so it’s all on the bottom of the pot, not stacked on top of each other.
  2. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 1 minute.
  3. While chicken is cooking, prepare the dressing by adding the orange juice concentrate, olive oil, white wine vinegar, salt, and pepper to a mason jar.  Secure lid and shake until well combined. Taste and adjust the seasonings if needed.
  4. When pressure cooking is complete, use a natural release.  
  5. Put It Together:  In a large salad bowl (or on individual serving plates), combine spinach or spring mix, chicken, red bell pepper, avocado, mango, mandarin oranges, and water chestnuts; gently toss.  Garnish with goat or feta cheese, cashews, and cilantro and serve with Sweet Orange Vinaigrette on the side.
