  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small yellow onion
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning or dried thyme
  • 1/2 cup white long-grain rice see note
  • 2.5 cups low-sodium chicken broth or stock
  • 2.3 cups water


  1. Start by cutting the chicken breast into bite size pieces. Chop onion, carrots and celery.
  2. Make sure the stainless steel insert is in your Instant Pot. Press "saute" setting and let the IP heat up for 2 minutes. Add oil and let it heat up.
  3. Add chopped onion, carrot, celery and minced garlic. Sautee for 3 to 4 minutes. Add chicken and saute for 2 minutes. When the chicken starts to turn white, add seasoning. Cook until chicken is almost cooked. Press "cancel/off" button.
  4. Add rice and stir well. Add liquids and stir. Close lid, set valve to "sealing" position. Make sure the Instant Pot is set to cook on HIGH pressure. Press the "manual" or "pressure cook" button. Set timer to 4 minutes. It will take about 7 minutes for the IP to come to pressure.
  5. When the timer is done, let the pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then flip the valve to "venting" position to release remaining pressure.
  6. Open the lid carefully away from your face. Stir. Serve with chopped parsley.
