I know you’re busy and you don’t have all day to spend in the kitchen. Same here.
That’s why I love quick and easy recipes that use simple, basic ingredients! Goodness knows we don’t have time to make multiple trips to the store and dirty every dish we own just to get dinner on the table.
Because most of us routinely have chicken on hand, and since rice is such a staple pantry ingredient, Instant Pot chicken and rice recipes have become some of my favorites!
Recipes that Use Chicken and Rice in the Instant Pot
I’ve compiled some of my favorite Instant Pot chicken and rice recipes, because I know this is a list you’ll want to keep handy!
There are options for everyone, from creamy, southern-style dishes to Asian-inspired recipes.
Making Instant Pot Chicken and Rice with Cream of Chicken Soup
A lot of homemade chicken and rice casseroles call for cream of chicken soup, and for good reason! It can easily add flavor and help create a creamy sauce.
That’s the tactic I use in my southern style creamy Instant Pot chicken and rice casserole, Instant Pot chicken and wild rice casserole, Instant Pot Creamy Italian chicken and rice, as well as my Instant Pot french onion chicken and rice and my Instant Pot cheesy chicken, broccoli, and rice casserole.
In those recipes, I prefer to add the cream of chicken soup after cooking the chicken and rice, allowing it to gradually warm and melt into a creamy sauce.
Can You Make Chicken and Wild Rice in the Instant Pot?
Yes, you can cook chicken with wild rice in your Instant Pot!
I love using a box of wild rice to make an easy and flavorful dinner.
What About Chicken Rice-a-Roni in the Instant Pot?
Let’s be honest–there are some days when a boxed rice mix can really simplify dinner.
Rice-a-Roni is such a versatile rice, and you can make a hearty meal of it when you pair it with chicken and cook it in your pressure cooker!
This Instant Pot Rice-a-Roni and Chicken is one of the easiest meals you can make–keep the ingredients on hand for a simple meal any day of the week.
Instant Pot Asian Chicken and Rice Recipes
Do you have favorite Asian takeout meals? If so, you’ll be delighted to know that you can make many of these in your Instant Pot!
Thanks to the pot-in-pot cooking method, the chicken and rice in these recipes cook separately in the Instant Pot, but at the same time–which saves you time and effort!
Can You Cook Chicken and Yellow Rice in the Instant Pot?
Yellow rice, or saffron rice, is another rice mix that can very easily be cooked in the Instant Pot.
I use Vigo yellow rice when making Instant Pot Spanish Chicken and Rice, otherwise known as arroz con pollo.
It’s a great way to make a flavorful meal of chicken and yellow rice in your pressure cooker with minimal effort!
