Teriyaki Chicken and Instant Pot Rice

Yes, you can use any brand of pot you have. I also have a Ninja Foodi, Crockpot Express and Mealthy. They all work the same, except that the first one adds the air fryer function, which is useful.

Years ago we shared how to make Instant Pot chicken and rice. Like the version of Campbell you had growing up, it’s still a dinner party. BUT this gives you more of a fried rice feeling…

If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you know how much I love teriyaki sauce. I mean I was born and spent my childhood in Hawaii, so it was something you put into everything.

That made me think it would be great as another version of our favorite food. Either I use this pot or my Cosori to prepare meals, it just makes my busy life easier.

When I can add protein, a starch, sauce and sometimes even include 1/2 c. of frozen corn in this … It’s a fast food. Everyone always cleans their plate, so it’s always a win too, so there’s rarely leftovers or wasted food.

Can I cook rice and meat at the same time in Instant Pot? Sure

you can, we do it all the time. Use kielbasa for Instant Pot sausage and cheese rice, or try ground beef and Instant Pot rice. The trick is not to remove the long-grained pieces. Instead, gently soak in the liquid and begin cooking time.

Can you cook raw chicken with rice?

yes! I usually give the outside first, but it’s not really a real need. You can throw it away as is, in small chunks and simply add an extra minute to the time posted below. You can also use leftover chicken breasts.

However, you’ll first want to cut your meat into bite-sized pieces. Sauté them with a little olive oil until the outside is no longer pink.

Once done, be sure to deglaze the pressure cooker correctly so that the burn notice does not appear and stop the process. This will give your meat some texture on the outside and shorten the overall cooking time.

Remember the advice about not removing. Yes, the grains will begin to sink, but they will still remain above the chicken, which will act as a buffer. This will help remove the pot thinking that the bottom is burning.

Here’s what you’ll need to do this. I will say I haven’t done this with brown rice and the time would take a lot longer with that. Cauliflower rice would be made into porridge, so it’s not a good alternative either.

Frozen chicken pieces are also not recommended. Those would release moisture and also could not be skipped at first.

Do I know it well?? Doesn’t that spoonful make your mouth water? Both are fabulous and you could really make both in a week and not really think about the fact that the main ingredients are essentially the same.

How long does chicken and rice last in the fridge?

Ok, so I’m picky when it comes to leftover rice. It almost doesn’t matter what you do to it, it will never be as wet as the first hour you do. However, integrating a sauce into it, like this one, will definitely help it not dry out so quickly.

Allow to cool completely to room temperature. Then pour into a portioned freezer bag and suck ALL the air, then seal it. Store in fridge for 2 days ideally and enjoy it during that time.

Reheat To reheat, pour some teriyaki sauce, soy sauce or water on top, mix with the beans and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir and heat again for another 30 seconds until as hot as you want.
