Quick Chicken Steamed Rice
This easy dish is inspired by fried rice. For fried rice, you typically need to cook the rice first and allow it to fully chill before frying for best results. This recipe allows the whole recipe to be cooked at once and uses less oil than you would with frying. It’s softer than typical fried rice but still has all the flavors you love, and it’s ready in 30 minutes. Excerpted from The “I Love My Instant Pot®” Three-Step Recipe Book by Robin Fields. Available where books are sold.

Instructions
  1. Press the Sauté button on an Instant Pot® and allow to heat until the display reads “Hot.” Pour oil into the pot. Season both sides of chicken with salt and pepper, then add to the pot and sauté 7 minutes until chicken is golden brown and the internal temperature is at least 165°F.
  2. Press the Cancel button. Pour broth into the pot, then use a wooden spoon to scrape any browned bits from the bottom. Add rice, soy sauce, carrots, and broccoli. Place the lid on the Instant Pot® and click into place to close. Press the Pressure Cook button and adjust the timer to 3 minutes. When the timer beeps, let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure until float valve drops. Unlock lid.
  3. Fluff rice with a fork and top with scallions. Serve warm.
