I stirred the contents of the Instant Pot gently and then added some long grain white rice, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper.

I did not stir after adding the rice.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, locked it in place and turned the steam release handle to the sealing position.

I turned on the Pressure Cook High setting for 7 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I immediately opened the steam release handle to do a quick release.

I removed the lid once the float valve dropped all the way down.

Then I added some shredded Parmesan cheese and parsley flakes to the pot.

    This recipe was awesome! 5 stars from my family. I followed the recipe exactly. Maybe 1/2 cup less of cheese would be better but flavor was great. Picky eater had 3 bowls!! WINNER

    This was flavorful and delicious! I didn’t have any heavy cream so I substituted whole milk, and it still came out great! I made this in a 6-quart Instant Pot, and when I did the quick release, some of the sauce came spurting out with the steam and made a pretty good mess…I’ll just hold a large inverted bowl over the top next time to catch some of the splatter! 😉

    I just made this, and it burned.

    Step 6: Do not stir!

    Sigh…

    Someday I will let go of my stuborness and read ALL the instructions. I did subsitute Cream of Chichen with herbs and it smells amazing.

    This recipe was DELICIOUS however, doing a quick release just made a huge mess! The cream sauce was spraying out of the vent all over my kitchen and made a mess of the I.P. I think a natural release would work much better. I used a 6 quart.

    I used brown rice instead of white and it wasn’t as thick as the pic showed. Still a lot of liquid. Also not good at cooking chicken so there were some pick bits so I just did slow cook for a half hr while I waited for the hubby to get some. We shall see 🤗

    I made this for dinner last night and it was so easy and ended up pretty well! I will say that I would cut back a lot on the black pepper next time because it was wayyyyy too prevalent in the dish. I’ll probably put in some italian seasoning and celery salt in next time and use maybe a quarter teaspoon of black pepper and let people season with more if they want. Also, I don’t know if anyone else has had this issue, but we ended up with a bunch of leftovers and the rice basically turned into a mushy lump overnight, so the texture is a lot more like porridge than cheesy chicken and rice. I’ll have to figure out if there’s a better way to store it so that the rice doesn’t get too mushy. Maybe if I let it cool uncovered before I put it in the rubbermaid, that’ll let some moisture out and it won’t steam the rice more when I close the container. Overall, a pretty good recipe, and with it being so easy and customizable, I forsee this being a staple meal in our busy house!

    So very good. Followed the directions exactly. This is not a dry fluffy rice dinner. Very creamy and cheesy. Husband loved it.

    I made this exact recipe but at the end I put it into a casserole dish. Added a thin layer of cheddar cheese and crunched corn flakes to the top and bake for 30 min at 375. AMAZING.
