Instructions
  1. Add olive oil to the Instant Pot. Using the display panel select the SAUTE function.
  2. When oil gets hot, add onion, carrots and celery to the pot and saute until onion is soft, 3-4 minutes.
  3. Add broth to the pot and deglaze by using a wooden spoon to scrape the brown bits from the bottom of the pot.
  4. Add rice, thyme, mushrooms and chicken to the pot and stir to combine.
  5. Layer the cream of chicken soup on the top--do not stir.
  6. Turn the pot off by selecting CANCEL, then secure the lid, making sure the vent is closed.
  7. Using the display panel select the MANUAL function*. Use the +/- keys and program the Instant Pot for 30 minutes.
  8. When the time is up, let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure.
  9. Carefully remove the chicken from the pot to a cutting board, chop and return to the pot. Adjust seasonings.
  10. Serve hot garnished with additional thyme.

    Added one cup of frozen peas when I took the chicken out to cut up (pull apart). Also reduced the thyme to 1/2 t. Will definitely make again.
