Instant Pot Pineapple Coconut Chicken Curry

In the mood for something spicy?! One of Joel's faves was curry. I loathed making it with its 256 ingredients, and to be honest, the 3 times I cooked it in the last year, I hated it. I didn't like the after taste, but I made the same stinking recipe over and over... why?! Love. Hahaha but for real, I didn't love it.

Freddie had been asking for it for a few weeks now. Today I surprised him when he found out that it was on the menu. However, I tried a new recipe! And... I've changed my mind. It's still not one of my favorite cuisines but I loved this and I made it my own. I used what I had and added some Young Living Vitality Oils in replacement for some spices and herbs. It was delish.

You can make this recipe less spicy by lessening the amount or taking out the red pepper and cumin.
