Instant Pot Chicken Daikon Stew

Enjoy this Instant Pot Chicken Daikon Stew over a bed of cauliflower rice. It is more flavorful if you substitute the coconut aminos for soy sauce, almond butter for peanut butter, raw honey for brown sugar, and of course you can eat this over white rice instead of cauliflower rice. I had made it this way because I am trying to follow the paleo diet, if you have no dietary restrictions, I highly suggest the substitutes.
