Creamy Chicken, Rice, & Broccoli – Instant Pot version

One of my favorite oven dinners is Creamy  Chicken, Rice and Broccoli.

So, I set out to convert it to the IP. The Result was an amazing dinner done under 30 minutes (and that’s with frozen chicken)

I used my 8 qrt DUO, and started out with 1 cup of water in the bottom of the pot, and then the trivet. ( I just happen to like chicken when it isn’t sitting in the liquid, but either way works.)

This particular day I used Bone-in chicken thighs. But you can use Chicken Breast too. And if you want to save yourself a step, just buy boneless.

Then I added a second trivet on top of the chicken. and the bowl of rice.  If you don’t have a second trivet you can put the bowl directly on top of the chicken.

In the bowl I put 1 cup of Uncle Ben’s brown rice. and 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth, Plus a slab of butter. Then placed the bowl on top of everything.  This method is called Pot in Pot cooking ( or PIP)

Set the lid, and make sure valve is set to seal. Then select Manual (or pressure cook) button and adjust to 23 minutes.

Make sure it is on high pressure.

The Pot came up to pressure surprisingly quick. And then when the 23 minutes was done, I let it naturally pressure release (NPR) for 5-10 minutes.  While I waited, I cheated a little bit and steamed my broccoli in the microwave. I could have waited and removed the chicken and rice and stuck the broccoli in the IP (If you want to do this, just select 0 minutes on the manual setting)

After releasing the remaining pressure, I set the bowl of rice aside. and took out the chicken. reserved the liquid for anything I need chicken broth for this week, and took the chicken off the bones.

I dumped in two cans of Cream of Mushroom soup and a splash of milk and dumped everything back in the pot to stir.

A sprinkle of pepper and paprika and dinner is done! (You don’t need salt if you are using the canned cream of mushroom soup)

I really love brown rice cooked like this in IP. It comes out fluffy and soft every time!

Instructions
  1. Prep the Brussel Sprouts by simply chopping the root end off. Cut the bigger ones in half for more even cooking.
  2. Place 1 cup of water into bottom of IP. Put brussel sprouts in the Instant Pot , I like to use a steamer basket best. (see note above for a few other ideas of what to steam your sprouts in)
  3. Close lid, set valve to seal. Select Manual for 1 minutes. (quick release when finished)
  4. To make the garlic butter you can use a small frying pan on the stove or just use the saute' function on your instant pot once they are done cooking. just simply remove them, dump water out Melt the butter Saute the garlic until fragrant 1-2 minutes add the brussel sprouts, add a dash of salt and pepper Saute in the butter for a few minutes, tossing to coat them well! transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Instructions
Sweetened Condensed Milk
  1. Start by putting the cream, butter, and sweetener into a shallow pan (like a frying pan or skillet). Stir until dissolved and bring to a boil on medium to high heat. Once boiling, simmer, stirring occasionally until condensed by about half and thick and bubbly. Should take about 15-20 minutes. This will make about a cup to a cup and a half of sweetened condensed milk. And now you are ready to make fudge! (This cream can also be used as a yummy coffee creamer.)
Fudge
  1. Take 1 cup of the condensed milk and 1 cup of chocolate chips. If your sweetened condensed milk is still hot your chocolate will melt right away, stir to combine! If it has already cooled just microwave, stirring every few seconds until fully melted and combined. Chill in the fridge or freezer until solid. Pour into a square dish or just leave it in the bowl if you want thicker pieces. I've also seen some bloggers put their fudge into ice cube trays for easy personal serving sizes!
