Instant Pot Chicken Thighs And Rice


Prep Time: 5 Min

Cook Time: 20 Min


– 2 tbsp olive oil – 1 large onion — diced – 4 cloves garlic — minced – 1 carrot — grated or diced, about 1 1/2 cups – 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into small pieces — about 1 pound, chicken breast could be substituted – 1 1/2 tsp salt or more to taste – 1/4 tsp black pepper – 1/4 tp paprika – 1/4 tsp ground cumin — optional – 2 tbsp chopped parsley — optional – 1 tbsp chopped dill — optional – 1 1/2 cups white rice – 3 cups chicken stock or water

Step 1

 Set a 6 qt Instant Pot to Sautee and heat the oil. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add the carrot and cook for 1 minute.

Step 2

Next add the chicken thighs and cook for 4 minutes, stirring frequently, until the meat is no longer pink on the outside.

Step 3

 Add the salt, pepper, paprika and cumin, then add the rice and chicken stock. Stir to combine. Close the Instant Pot (set the valve to sealing) and cook for 10 minutes on manual high pressure with quick release. 10 of cooking will create an al dente rice, for a softer texture cook for 1 minute longer.
