Exemplary chicken and rice dish adjusted for the weight cooker! Consolidate everything in the pot, and return to an entirely cooked dish. Simple, comfortable weeknight supper.

Chicken and rice is one of my go-tos for weeknight dinners — I love the one-pot accommodation.

I’ve discovered that goulashes improve in my Instant Pot when the meat is on the base and the rice is layered on top. Thusly, the rice doesn’t consume before the chicken is cooked through (this likewise makes cleaning the skillet a lot simpler!).

At the point when I saw that Elise had composed an exquisite, velvety chicken dish formula made with mushrooms, sherry, and acrid cream, I promptly thought of adjusting it to the weight cooker.

Not exclusively does cooking this meal in my Instant Pot require less dishes, however it eats on the table in less than 60 minutes. I additionally love that you can simply “set it and overlook it” in the weight cooker.

This variation keeps similar kinds of Elise’s unique formula, however I made a couple of little changes to ensure it turned out perfectly in the weight cooker.

I realize it sounds inverse of how you’d make a goulash in the broiler, yet it is idiot proof. I likewise decreased the measure of fluid a piece, since there’s less dissipation with pressure cooking.

This formula is complete solace food, a straightforward feast for cold fall and winter evenings. It’s actually a total supper without anyone else – you don’t have to serve whatever else close by! It makes four liberal servings, and is effectively multiplied for a bigger group.
