Instant Pot Creamy Chicken and Rice

I never get tired of creamy chicken and rice combinations, especially when they’re this easy. All 5 kids loved it, and that’s a pretty rare thing.

Heat the Instant Pot on saute and cook until starting to soften:

1 T. butter

1 onion, diced

Add and stir until the chicken is partly cooked through, about 2-3 minutes:

1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast, bite-sized pieces

3 cloves garlic

Add the following ingredients, put the lid on the pot, and cook at high pressure for 5 minutes with a quick release:

2 t. Italian seasoning

1/2 t. pepper

1 t. salt

3 c. rice

4 1/2 c. chicken broth

When the pressure has released, open the pot and stir in the following:

3/4 c. heavy cream

3/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese

Serve creamy chicken and rice with a side of broccoli, spinach, or another favorite vegetable.
