Instructions
  1. Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Layer the chicken, onion powder, rice and 1/4 cup cheese in a 6 quart Instant Pot®. Pour the broth over the cheese and spoon the soup on top (the order is important, so don't stir until after the cooking is done).
  2. Lock the lid and close the pressure release valve. Pressure cook on High pressure, setting the timer to 6 minutes (timer will begin counting down once pressure is reached- it takes about 10 minutes). When done, press Cancel and use the quick release method to release the pressure.
  3. Add the broccoli and stir well, then sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 cup cheese. Close the lid and let stand for 10 minutes or until the rice is tender and the broccoli is tender-crisp. Season to taste.

    Followed the recipe spot on. Rice and chicken both underdone. I would increase the time to maybe 8-10 minutes on the pressure cook.

    I tried to double the recipe and before it could start pressure cooking it got the food burn message. Ended up putting on the rice setting which took alot longer to cook but it tasted really good.

    Rice was undercooked after following recipe exactly as outlined. Suggest increasing pressure cook time to 9-10 minutes

    I followed the recipe to the T and like others have stated I got the burn message as well. I did not Stir it the only thing that I may have done differently is rinse the rice where it was wet. I ended up pouring it into a bowl and putting in the oven.

    Uncooked rice and chicken and broth and water. Closed the lid and the seal popped up set it on pressure cook and set it for 30 min on high pressure cook . The red button never came to show it pressurized .then it showed the burn message when time was up . Opened it and the chicken was not completely cooked or the rice on top

    This recipe is awful. Even cooking for 10 min, the chicken was still raw and rice not cooked. Cooked an additional 10 min , chicken just done, rice still hard.
    Don’t bother.

    Good recipe for a younger person to start cooking. Add your favorite seasonings… Works well with most combinations

    6 minutes was not long enough. Rice was uncooked. I had to wait a bit for all steam and then do it again for a few minutes longer and when that was done, the rice stuck to the bottom! 🙁

    About to try this recipe. To anyone who had trouble with undercooking – Did you select High Pressure when using Pressure cook setting? Just asking because I’m not sure whether to add more time or not!

    Followed the recipe. Cut the chicken up smaller, use fresh chicken. Cooked 6 minutes like it called for. Ended up using 4 cups of broccoli. The only thing I did different was let it stand at the end after adding the broccoli and cheese for about 15 minutes. Then had more cheese on hand to add once it was dished out.

    Wasn’t worth the trouble. Followed directions to the letter. Kept getting “Burned Food” shutting my pot dow each time.
    Scraped pot and tried over and over. Added additional 42oz beef broth and floated rice, chicken and cheese. Still got burnt signal. Gave up and cooked on the stove.
    Problem was cheese melted sticking to the bottom. Will not cook cheese in the pot again.

    Followed the recipe to the exact detail and it BURNED MY FOOD! This has happened several times with this product! Would not recommend this recipe at all!

    Made this exactly as written and my rice and broccoli were too underdone. I tried cooking it for a couple minutes longer and it burned the food. I’m not sure if I can trust recipes from the instant pot website..

    This recipe is a freaking disaster. Burn warning, rice burned to the bottom. This was my second meal cooked in instapot. Makes me not a fan of instapot.
