  3. I steamed the carrots and broccoli in my Instant Pot for 5 minutes. I live at a high elevation (7000 ft). If you want to use your Instant Pot, cook the vegetables for less time (try 3 minutes).
  4. Add the sliced bok choy, broccoli and carrots to the cooked chicken and stir. Cook a few more minutes to soften the bok choy. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper. Add a heaping spoonful of love.
  5. Serve over Jicama "Noodles" if desired.

Recipe Notes

See this post on how to make Jicama "Noodles." Of course you can skip steaming the vegetables and just add them to the chicken when it is almost done. I steamed the vegetables to cut down on the cooking time. You can add any vegetable you tolerate. Use beef, pork or tofu (if tolerated) instead of the chicken, or leave the meat out altogether. If eating low histamine, make sure the chicken is a fresh as you can get it. I often have problems with chicken, even if it is very fresh. I don't know the histamine content of jicama, but I seem to do OK with it. Black pepper is ranked as a "2" on the SIGHI Histamine Food Compatibility List. So omit it if you are eating low histamine. (Other lists say black pepper is fine, but if you want to be careful, omit it.) Since I live at a high elevation (7000 ft), cooking times in the Instant Pot are longer for me than they would be for someone living at a lower elevation.
