Ingredients

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (diced into 1 inch pieces)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 onion (chopped)
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup (10.5 oz can)
  • 1 1/2 cups white rice
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (shredded)

Instructions

  • Turn the instant pot to the sauté setting and add in the olive oil.
  • Add the chicken and onions and cook for 5-7 minutes stirring occasionally until the onions are softened and the chicken is browned slightly.
  • Then add in the minced garlic and cook on the sauté setting for 1-2 minutes.
  • Then stir in the chicken and rice. Make sure the rice is covered by the liquid (add more broth if needed).
  • Next pour the cream of chicken soup on top of the other ingredients but do not mix it in with the other ingredients.
  • Seal the instant pot (by moving the valve on the lid to the seal position). Cook on high pressure for 3 minutes. After the cook time, let the pressure release from the instant pot naturally by not moving the valve on the lid.
  • Once all the pressure has been released from the instant pot. Remove the lid, stir in the shredded cheese. The heat from the meal will melt the cheese.
  • Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

Refrigerate the leftovers in an air tight container for up to 5-7 days. 
You can mix in a bag of frozen mixed vegetables into this meal when you add in the rice.  I have done this with frozen peas and carrots mixture before and it works great.
