Then I added some water, heavy cream and cream of chicken soup to the pot.

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 5 minutes.

Once 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

    Can I use orzo or another type of grain?

    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 🤗
