Chicken And Rice Recipe
I wanted to talk to you all about the rice that I use in my Instant Pot. Before I started making rice in my IP I just used the instant type. I read somewhere that you shouldn’t use instant rice in your Instant Pot. That the rice gets soggy, now I can’t attest for that because I haven’t used instant rice in my IP.
I did find this royal blend from Rice Select that I love. It cooks up perfectly and my family all loves the flavor. It does cost a little bit more than instant rice but I feel it’s well worth the extra cost.
The ingredients you will need to make this recipe is.
Chicken Broth~ you could use water and then use a paste type of bouillon like Better Than Bouillon. I changed to using this bouillon before I bought my IP. Every Instant Pot Facebook group I’m on recommends Better Than Bouillon and so do I.
Chicken breast~ I used 4 rather large breasts for this recipe.
Italian Seasoning~ I like using McCormick perfect pinch Italian seasoning.
Rice~ I recommend this royal blend it has a great flavor. But please note that I don’t recommend using instant rice.
Cream of Chicken Soup~ You can use whatever brand you want, I used my local store brand.
Cream Cheese~ Adding cream cheese to this chicken and rice recipe gives it a nice creaminess.
I add all the ingredients into my pressure cooker as I have them listed. Do not stir at this point. Adding the ingredients the way I have them listed. Helps you not to get that dreaded burn on your Instant Pot on the display screen.
How Long Do I cook Chicken and Rice In The Instant Pot?
Once I have added all the ingredients as I have them listed, it’s time to set the cook time. Push the Pressure Cooker button and adjust the minutes to 25, make sure you push the high-pressure button also. Once your Instant Pot comes to pressure and does the 25 minutes of cooking, let it natural release for 10 minutes. A natural release is when you let the pressure naturally release from the Instant Pot. Once the 10 minutes are up there may be some pressure still in the IP so you will need to move your release valve to open. Be careful of any steam that comes out, it can cause a burn.
Removing the lid from the IP I will give the Chicken And Rice a little stir. Next, you can shred the chicken. I shred it up quite a bit this way there is some chicken in every bite.
Serve with your favorite vegetable like my recipe for Oven Roasted Butternut Squash.
