How to Cook Chicken Breast and Rice in the Instant Pot~Easy Cooking
  • Be sure to rinse the rice well before cooking.
  • When you add the broth to the pot, be sure to scrape up any bits stuck to bottom of your Instant Pot with a spoon or spatula before adding the chicken. This will ensure that you dont get the Instant Pot burn message during the pressure cooking time.
  • If you want more veggies, try adding a chopped bell pepper along with the carrots. To add broccoli, stir in some steamed broccoli after pressure cooking. The broccoli will get too mushy if you pressure cook it along with everything else. Or stir a few handfuls of chopped fresh spinach into the finished dish.

    Is there an alternative if I dont have a trivet? Im ordering one but would like to make this tonight. Can I up the broth to avoid burning or otherwise do something in lieu of the trivet?

    You should be able to place the chicken directly in the pot without a burn notice, yes. The trivet keeps the chicken up out of the broth so it steams rather than boils!

    What Is Chicken Biryani

    Chicken biryani is an extremely popular and flavorful rice dish made in the Indian subcontinent. Consisting of layers of spicy marinated chicken, rice, and aromatics, this comforting dish packs in the flavor.

    Traditionally cooked in a covered dum a pot sealed with dough over a low flame, biryani is often considered a special occasion meal.

    One of the things I truly love about this classic dish is how there is no one right recipe, and each household might make it just a little differently.

    Serving And Making In Advance Recommendations

    Serving: We serve as is. Some readers said they prefer more flavor and have added chopped cilantro and green onion. I guess it all comes down to individual taste buds.

    Storing in the fridge: Leftover chicken and rice can be refrigerated right in inner pot with silicone or glass lid for up to 5 days. Or in airtight container, try leftovers in teriyaki chicken meal prep, easy lunch!

    To reheat: You will notice chicken and rice will thicken in the fridge into a block. Thats because fat. Reheat with a splash of water or broth breaking into pieces and stirring in a pot. Use lid to steam it through. Always reheat only desired amount to keep leftovers fresh.

    Freezing: I understand some of you do not feed a small army like me. Yes, you can freeze leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Thaw in the fridge overnight and then follow reheating instructions above.

    Tips For Using An Instant Pot:

    Instant Pot Garlic Herb Chicken and Rice

    First-time users: always read the users manual for your specific instant pot prior to starting since your machine may not operate or look exactly like ours.

    • Make sure the rim and rubber seal on your instant pot are clean for the seal to form properly.
    • Stir the rice together before turning on to avoid the burn notice.
    • Remember to set your lever to the stealing position for pressure to build.
    • When manually releasing pressure, wear an oven mitt and keep your face away from the hot steam vent.
    • I keep a paper towel ready to shield the vent in case it sputters liquid while venting/releasing pressure.
    • Always check the pressure indicator on your machine to ensure that the pressure has fully released prior to opening the lid.
    • Follow timing instructions precisely and set timers. With pressure cooking it easy to over-cook something if you forget about your pot.

    Tips To Avoid The Burn Warning

    I have made this recipe successfully dozens of times and have yet to ever see the Instant Pot issue a burn warning while cooking it. MANY of readers have found the same success. A few readers, however, have reported receiving a burn error.

    To avoid this, be sure to use the following tips to ensure you make the BEST Instant Pot chicken and rice every time:

    • Add Liquid. While you dont have to add water to the Instant Pot specifically, you do need to add some type of liquid to avoid the dreaded BURN warning. For this recipe, I used almond milk. Low sodium chicken broth is another good option. Avoid dairy milk, which can burn.
    • Scrape Before Sealing. Before you seal your Instant Pot, make sure you scrape the bottom to remove any pieces of stuck-on food leftover after sautéing. These pieces of food can trigger a BURN warning during cooking.
    • Rinse the Rice. Make sure you rinse your rice before starting the recipe to remove excess starch and keep it from becoming sticky . Do NOT use instant rice for this recipe, as it will turn to mush.
