Instant Pot 20 Minute Chicken Burrito Bowls

This literally comes together in less than 10 min prep and another 10 min in the pressure cooker. The chicken is so tender and the flavors are just unbelievable here! After this, you’ll never want to make burrito bowls without your Instant Pot!

Is it kind of wrong that I want a bowl of this chicken burrito bowl with the pad thai and fried rice and drunken noodles that I’ve been having here?

Because I’m not quite homesick just yet.

But I still need a bowl of this right now. With a cold Corona. And a fresh lime wedge.

Okay, so maybe I’m getting just a tiny bit homesick. But only because this is my favorite burrito bowl ever.

This burrito bowl was the first Instant Pot recipe I ever tested that converted me to the IP cult in 0.497295 seconds.

So you know it has to be good.

The chicken comes out perfectly tender but the rice is the true hero – soaked with all the burito bowl flavors from the IP magic.

Serve with fresh cilantro leaves, a lime wedge, and crushed tortilla chips, if desired.

Or if you’re anything like Ben, a whole bag of crushed tortilla chips.

Hello…I would like to make this recipe. Suggestions on cooking time if made in a crock pot?

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

Hi. This look great! CAn I use brown rice? will that change cooking time and/or liquid needed?

Yes, brown rice can be substituted but cooking time will need to be adjusted.

What if you don’t have a pressure cooker?

I wanted to tell you I love your recipes. They taste great and are easy to make. Thank you for sharing. Is there a place where I can find the nutrition info on each recipe? I noticed some recipes have them and some don’t. I count calories so that information is helpful.

Nutritional information is actually provided only for select and new recipes at this time. However, if it is not available for a specific recipe, I recommend using free online resources at your discretion (you can Google “nutritional calculator”) to obtain such information. Hope that helps!

Can I make this in the crock pot if I don’t have an instant pot? It looks delicious!

If you didn’t want to use pre packaged taco seasoning what would you substitute it with?

You can try substituting homemade taco seasoning. Here’s a great recipe that I use:

we just got an instant pot, so I’m totally adding this to the list of things to try soon!

What is an Instant Pot?

The Instant Pot is a brand of electronically controlled, combined pressure cooker and slow cooker. You can read more about it here: https://instantpot.com/.

I don’t see any nutrition info provided for this recipe….

So I have an allergy to tomatoes – makes salsa difficult – I know a burrito bowl is not a burrito bowl without salsa but if we just call it a delicious chicken dish – do you have a suggestion for a replacement of the salsa – or failing that if I leave it out completely I assume I would need to add more liquid for the rice?

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

Might you try either a salsa verde (made with tomatillos) or a mango salsa in place of the usual tomato-based salsa? Tomatillos are in the nightshade family along with potatoes and tomatoes, but I’ve known people who are allergic to one and not the others. Just a thought.

looks delicious as always. you always inspire me to cook away in my tiny kitchen! thank you for sharing!

thanks for this recipe and the non insta pot recipe too, I’m always happy to skip the tortilla but love all of the flavors that go into it!

Why the no stirring after adding rice? Should it sit on top of everything else? Keep the instant pot recipes coming!! We love ours!! Busy families should get one.

Yes, the rice should not be stirred in. If it is mixed, the rice can burn. Hope that helps!

My rice on the top was dry and hard… what do you think I did wrong? I had to throw it all out. 🙁

It’s hard to say as many factors can be at play here. Did you follow the recipe exactly as written without any substitutions? What kind of rice did you use? What size Instant Pot did you use?

I just made this in the IP. It’s delicious but I think I need more than 1/4 cup broth with the taco seasoning. Some of it stuck to the bottom (even though I stirred it in) and the valve never came up so steam was escaping. I waited the 10 minutes and did a quick release and although some of the rice was a little chewy, it was wonderful. Can I add more liquid in the first step–maybe 1/2 cup?

Do you think this recipe could be double as long as it doesn’t go above the max fill line in the instant pot? Thanks

I made this today–my first ever Instant Pot meal! It was almost too easy to assemble and the results were delicious. The only change I made was to omit the green chiles in deference to my husband and father-in-law, both of whom have issues with anything remotely “spicy”. I just added a little chipotle to mine and all was good.

I followed this recipe exactly and did not mix it the rice but instead put it on top with the last of the chicken broth.
When I opened the instant-pot everything was cooked except the rice. It was still hard as rock sitting on top of the cooked chicken. I even added and extra 1/4 cup of chicken broth because I didn’t think there was enough liquid to cook the rice. Any idea where I went wrong?
I had to mix the rice in and put it back on for another 10 minutes.

Oh no – what kind of Instant Pot are you using? Was the valve set in place?

Yep valve was in place. I am using the Instant Pot Duo V2 – 6 quart.

We had the same issue – rice was hard on top 🙁

I have found that it helps to make sure the rice is wet. Although I don’t stir it, I press it down a little with the spoon so all the rice is contacting some liquid. I also always rinse my rice first. Hope that helps!

Same thing happened to me.

I never have success with cooking rice in the instant pot at the same time as everything else. I just cook mine separately and add it in before serving. Works great for me!

I make some form of burrito bowls once a week but usually have tons of dirty dishes. This was a great way to make them quickly and lots less clean-up. Everyone liked the recipe. My son ate his in a wrap. Thanks!

Two of my friends and I tried this recipe, all with the same result….the BURN indicator came on. We followed the recipe exactly. Very frustrating! Loved the idea but it didn’t work for any of us.

Oh no – I am so sorry to hear that. Did you stir in the rice at all? If the rice is stirred in and reaches the bottom of the pot in any way, it will certainly burn. To avoid any kind of burning, the rice should sit on top of the mixture.

Didn’t stir the rice. Put it in last along with the 3/4 cup of water just like the recipe said and didn’t stir. The problem seemed to be that 1/4 cup of liquid wasn’t enough to avoid the burning. On the plus side, I got it all to cook through and the family loved it but I’d like to avoid the BURN warning next time! LOL!

Gotcha! What size Instant Pot did you use?

I had the same problem in my 8 quart duo. I ended up putting the mixture in a Pyrex bowl on the trivet and cooked it pot-in-pot. That was the only way I could cook it without the “burn” coming on.

This was great! I made exactly as instructed and it was my first time using my new insta pot. It came out perfectly.

Would love to see more instapot recipes.

I have an 8qt and my friends, who had the same trouble, have 6 qts.

I did get it to cook by opening it, adding more liquid and cooking another 5 minutes and it really was good. Will try it again and add more liquid. Just wondering if you knew why it happened for the 3 of us.

It’s hard to say! I tested this numerous times both in my 6-qt Instant Pot and another 6-qt pressure cooker of a different brand, and I did not have issues with either machines.

These were so good! My picky 6 year old is begging me to make them again. He took the leftovers in a thermos to school the next day and was disappointed we didn’t have any later in the week! Thanks for another awesome recipe!

This recipe does not include enough liquid, completely scalded and burned the bottom of my instant pot. I would revise.

Leigh, the recipe calls for 1 cup chicken broth. It should be sufficient to avoid any type of burning.

Thanks for sharing! We have cooked several of your recipes and they never disappoint!!

I was very apprehensive to try this recipe (and others like it) due to the many comments of people receiving burn messages. However, I finally tried it and it worked out great! I added cayenne pepper and changed the green chilies to jarred jalapenos and used wild rice with long grain white rice, as that’s what I had on hand. I will make this again!

Just made this in the Instant Pot. It was good. I had no problems with the rice being burnt or not done. Followed directions as written. Next time I will have avocado and black olives to garnish. Thanks for the delicious easy recipe.

Omg I followed directions exactly and it keeps saying burn over and over again. This is so frustrating. I feel like all the food is wasted. Is there a way to finish cooking it in the oven?

I actually ended up finishing it up in the oven at 350 degrees for 20 min. Turned out great.

Angela, I am so sorry you are having such difficulty. What a bummer! Nothing should be burning if the rice is left on top of the mixture. May I ask what Instant Pot you used and what size?

I’m new to instant pot cooking so followed this recipe exactly. My instant pot heated up and within one minute of cooking time I got a “burn” message. I checked the pot as per manual instructions and started again. Same thing happened. I ended up with a burnt pot bottom so removed the food, put it in a casserole dish and popped it in the oven. Can you give me any idea what might have gone wrong.

Marilyn, did you stir in the rice? It is very important for the rice to sit on top of the mixture. If the rice is stirred in and reaches the bottom of the pot, the rice will brown too quickly, which will signal a BURN message.

I actually stirred the rice and didn’t get the burn message. Who knows!

Made this last night. After reading comments I added 1/4th cup broth. Everything cooked perfectly, it was a little wet but that was my fault for being nervous and not just following the recipe as stated. I also used spices from my cabinet since I forgot to buy taco spice and kidney beans because I forgot to buy black beans as well. I will definitely make this again.

I made this tonight and it turned out great! The rice was cooked perfectly and everything tasted delicious. I topped it with refried beans and lettuce and used Penzeys bold taco seasoning. Yum!

This was my 1st instant pot meal that I made I love your recipes. Because i am one of those that don’t really read the instructions (lol) I bought a large 1/2 chicken breast. so I just used my own taco mix added salt and pepper put it on the bottom of the pan and did the rest as instructed to do so. Kind of. Once I added the rice on top I then added the salsa and chicken stock afraid it would not have cooked I just wanted to make sure it was moist. Once it was done I took the chicken out and just shredded it! So moist!

This recipe use regular rice not quick cook or minute rice, right? Thanks!

Yes, that is correct.

I followed this recipe exactly and used my Instant Pot, and it burned to the bottom of the pot. I kept getting the BURN warning, so I eventually had to just turn it off and the chicken wasn’t done, and I had a black crust in the bottom of the pot.

Same thing happened to me. Such a bummer 🙁 I even tried adding like 1 extra cup of broth but I still kept getting the BURN message and then it turned out like burrito soup. Sad.

The trick is to not stir in the rice, as mentioned in step 3. Simply add on top of the ingredients already in the pot and add the broth. If you stir and mix the rice into the other ingredients, it will burn. So sorry it didn’t turn out for you the first time around!

I have a 6 quart Duo Plus Instant Pot. I followed the recipe exactly as written and it came out perfectly. I think it would have been too soupy if I would have added more liquid.

For my teenagers I served it with fried flour tortilla bowls I bought at the bakery with shredded lettuce on the bottom and the chicken on top. For the adults I served it alone. I will be making this again. It was easy and quick.

My husband and I LOVED this recipe. I read the previous comments and was concerned about the possibility of getting a burn message, but I followed the recipe as written and didn’t have any problem. The only change I made was using instant brown rice instead of long grain white rice, and it came out great. Thanks for a great recipe!

You are so welcome, Kayla! Thanks for sharing 🙂

I made this earlier this week. It was the second time I’ve made it and the whole family loves this recipe. Looking forward to more Instant Pot recipes 😀

Awesome! So happy to hear it. There will be more to come 🙂

If I do not want to add the rice should I still use the additional 3/4 cup of chicken broth?

Hi Nicole! Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

I have made this twice now, exactly as recipe states, and it’s has turned out PERFECTLY each time!! It is so good! And I cannot state enough how much I love just dumping it all in, and turning it on. Would love to see more “dump” recipes for the instant pot on here, as I’m a full time working mom of a 2 year old. Cooking dinner is the hardest part of my day, and this recipe made it so much easier! Thanks! All of your recipes are wonderful. Can’t wait to try more!

Thank you Sara for your honest feedback! We’ll be working on those recipes for you!

I made this tonight and it turned out great! I followed the recipe as written but substituted brown rice instead of white. For those wondering, I cooked for 24 minutes in my Instant Pot with the brown rice and it turned out perfect. Thanks for the great recipe!

So great to hear, Ryan! Thanks for your feedback!

Loved this recipe! For once it’s nice to find one that I didn’t need to fiddle with and it came out perfect. I couldn’t believe how tender the chicken was and we really don’t like breast meat so that was a pleasant surprise. This is a keeper! Thanks Chungah.

That’s so great to hear!

Can you add bell peppers and onions to this? Also. I have Jasmine rice. Would that still work?

Yes, Elizabeth, you can substitute or add ingredients as you wish. However, the cooking times may vary when changing ingredients, so please use your best judgement adjusting the recipe. Have fun!

I doubled the recipe, cut the rice and broth a bit. Worked perfectly. My instantpot can be a bit tricky. Will definitely make again. Thanks. Next time I may add cut sweet potatoes.

Great improvising Turney. Yes, it can be a little tricky sometimes, but way to stick with it and figure it out!!

I just got a 6 qt as a gift and I wanted to try this recipe first. Unfortunately, this recipe would not be enough for my family of 5. Can I double it in a 6qt and if I can, do I also double the cook time? TIA

What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

I have a 3 quart instant pot (just two of us in the house). Would I just halve this recipie?

Yes! 🙂 But please be mindful of the change in cooking time.

This was delicious! It was nice that it was a whole meal in one pot too. Thanks, Chungah!

So happy to hear that Andrea! Thank you.

My pot never came to pressure. Always would get the burn message even after adding more liquid After 5th attempt, I took it out and have it in the oven now to finish cooking. Hopefully rice and chicken cook through nicely. Smells good.
I think next time I will mix taco seasoning and broth so taco seasoning dissolves, then add the chicken and follow remaining recipe as follows. I had put in the chicken, then taco seasoning then broth. Thinking taco seasoning needs to be dissolved in the broth before adding to the pot otherwise it will stick to the bottom of the pot and burn message will appear.
Will try another day hopefully with better results

How much time do I add if I want to double the recipe ?

Hi Susan! Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

This was delicious! Thanks!

Thank you Michelle!

Can this be made with dry beans?

Unfortunately, the cooking time here is not sufficient enough to cook through the dry beans.

How much liquid should i use for an 8 QT instant pot? And i wont be adding the rice, i only have the parboiled kind.

Hi Robyn! Unfortunately, without having tried this myself, it’s hard to answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

Does the rice have to be cooked first or can I just dump in it dry?

You can add it in dry.

This is the first time I tried the IP. Your recipe sounded great and I loved that it wouldn’t take long either. I had a problem though, I thought cooking time was 10 minutes. I must’ve done something wrong because I set it manual for 10 minutes but an hour and half later I had to finally turn it off. The bottom was starting to burn. Not sure why it took so long. What am I doing wrong? It WAS very tasty though!

Hi Robin! Thanks for trying this recipe! This is a favorite of mine because it’s so quick!

I’m not entirely sure what went wrong for you though. Did you stir in the rice at all?

This was my first use of the Instapot and I really was careful to do everything right, but it never cooked. The BURN message came up all three times I tried. I called them and they said I probably didn’t have enough liquid so I added a little more. Nope. I’m not going to give us, but I am discouraged.

Well, I just opened it up again and it seems that even though the burn message kept coming on it did cook it and it’s good.

Whew. I’m so glad!

Just made this recipe. I didn’t read very well and added and stirred in all the water before adding the rice on top. Turned out great. No scorching but not a drop of extra liquid at the end. I made it my own by adding a cup of chopped sweet onion and 1/2t of cayenne pepper to make it SPICY! Thank you for the recipe.

Glad it turned out great!

This was a fail for me. After reading through the comments, I was hoping I’d fall into the “this worked and was delicious” camp, and tried cooking this in my 6qt. IP Ultra. I followed the recipe exactly including keeping the rice layered on the top. Got the “burn” message 3 times in a row, right after pre-cook completed and before going into cooking mode. Each time, the food was cooking to the bottom of the pot (not rice). So now I’m trying to bake it in my oven. Super disappointing. 🙁

Oh no, Lara! What a bummer! I’m so sorry this recipe did not turn out for you. It’s so hard to say what went wrong though if you followed the recipe. I have made this dozens of times in my Instant Pot 6qt DUO Plus 60 (I’m actually making it for dinner tonight!) and I have never once received a burn message.

Sorry if this has been asked before, but do you know if this will fit in a duo mini instant pot (3 qt)?

Unfortunately, this recipe has only been tested in a 6qt Instant Pot so I cannot say with certainty. Sorry, Zack!

Hi! I just made this and it smells and tastes great but the rice wasn’t fully cooked. I ended up adding a bit more chicken broth and did an additional 3 minutes in manual mode, but ended up burning a little bit to the bottom of the pot. Rice definitely ended up being more “al dente”. Is there anything else you could recommend doing differently? The recipe said not to stir in the rice but wondering if stirring it into the mixture would have helped? Thank you!

Hi Shruti! What kind of rice did you use? If the rice is mixed in, it will burn and the Instant Pot will not work.

So I tried this recipe, followed it to the letter, added an extra bit of broth too and the rice never cooked. Now I’m sitting here with no dinner, wasted a bunch of money on all the ingredients and questioning if I should even bother with the rest of your recipes

Jim, I am sorry you are having so much difficulty but when making alterations to a recipe, such as adding additional broth, the results may change. I have tested this recipe dozens of time with a team, and the rice is cooked perfectly each time! Are you using white long-grain rice?

So my IP is burnt beyond use anymore, and I’ll never make one of your recipes again. I followed it exactly and clearly there are 2 major flaws: not enough broth and not enough cooking time. Time to order a new pot for my IP as it’s ruoned.

Jim, that’s such a bummer to hear about the Instant Pot. Have you watched the instructional tutorial video for this recipe? You will see that I have made the recipe as written with outstanding results – no burning messages and fully cooked rice!

Hi! I am so excited to try this recipe – it looks amazing! I am just wondering, as I have never used an Instant Pot (it gets delivered tomorrow. SQUEE. ) how much I should adjust the time if I am cooking from frozen?

Thanks! (and wish me luck, ahaha)

Hi Sammy! Congrats on the new Instant Pot!

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

I took a chance and tried this, hoping I wouldn’t be in the “burn” crowd, but no such luck. I was absolutely meticulous about not getting any rice stirred in, and still the burn message kept coming up and everything was stuck to the bottom of the pot. 1/4 cup of broth in the bottom layer of the mixture is absolutely NOT enough.

I am sorry to hear that! Yes, you are absolutely right. 1/4 cup broth is certainly not enough. However, an additional 3/4 cup broth is added with the rice (so total 1 cup of broth is used in this recipe, which is more than sufficient). Did you add that in? If so, there should not have been any kind of burning.

This recipe is the first one I made in my new instant pot and it turned out nearly perfect and SO delicious. I followed the recipe as written, and aside from a little that stuck to the bottom, it was fantastic (and fantastically simple to throw together). Next time I’ll maybe try adding another 1/8 C of broth to help with the sticking.

Thank you for a great recipe!

I followed the directions exactly and it was perfect! No burning at all. Thanks for an easy and delicious recipe!

Perfect! Even though i messed up on the steps of adding ingredients (mixed salsa with chicken broth and added as final step). It was amazing!
Cut recipie in half if only two people, or you will have to eat this yummy food for 2+days. Of course we didn’t mind the leftovers 🙂

Glad you are enjoying the leftovers!

How would you double this recipe? Do you change all ingredients including the liquids and the time to twice as much?

What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

Continuously went into burn mode, eventually gave up and tossed ingredients, waste of time and money. Followed directions precisely.

Mark, did you use a 6-qt Instant Pot? Did you stir in the rice? Have you watched the instructional video? As you can see, no burning of any kind has occurred. If the instructions and equipment were followed precisely, there should be no burning of any kind.

I tried to make this recipe- followed directions to a T and unfortunately my instapot kept saying burn. Valve was in place, everything appeared to be correct. Added more water, in an attempt to save save dinner and still no luck so we ended up ordering dinner. :/ Quite bummed…. But your instant pot mushroom risotto was a huge hit.

What a fantastic recipe! Easy to make, and so good!

I have a newer instant pot (the duo 60) and got the dreaded “burn” message when the cooker was reaching pressure. Adding an extra 1/3c of broth solved the problem for me, and everything came out great– the extra liquid all absorbed perfectly.

Thank you for your feedback!

I never leave comments on blog recipes, but I just had to for this one! I was nervous making this because 1) I’m scared of my new InstaPot , and 2) all of the comments about burned or uncooked food. However, my husband loves Mexican food, and I’m trying to start using the IP, so I gave it a try last night. Boy, am I glad! One of my new favorites! Everything cooked absolutely perfectly (I followed the recipe except I mixed the seasoning in well with the 1/4 cup of broth before pouring it in). My husband loved it, which I expected, but even the kids loved it! Our 10-month-old chowed down and cleared his high chair tray, our picky oldest admitted it was “pretty good” (high praise for him!), but our middle refused to eat anything but the chicken. With a bit of urging, he finally took a bite, his eyes lit up, and he exclaimed, “Why didn’t I just taste this. ” So thank you, Damn Delicious, for not only giving us a new favorite recipe but for also teaching our 4-year-old a valuable life lesson about making snap judgments

That’s so great to hear! Thank you for sharing with us!

Just made this and my family is raving. A few changes/hacks…

I left out the corn as my family isn’t a fan of corn in our burritos. I mixed the seasoning with the broth to help it dissolve. In regards to under cooked rice, I rinsed it then carefully used a rubber spatula to just spread it out a little. When when I added the last of the broth mixture, I poured it over a mixing spoon so it wouldn’t disrupt or “push” he rice down below the mixture.
For toppings I used sour cream, avocado, cilantro, more cheese, jalapeno slices, tortilla strips & fresh lime juice.

Thanks for sharing Sandi!

Every time I try this recipe, I get a burn notice. How are you avoiding burn notice?

It’s hard to say, Jenny – I have made this a dozen times without ever receiving a burn notification! Are you following the recipe exactly as written without any substitutions or modifications? Are you stirring in the rice?

How do I modify for a mini 3qt instant pot?

When using a 3qt or “mini” Instant Pot, the general rule of thumb is to divide the recipe in half with the same cook time. But as always, please use your best judgment when making substitutions and modifications.

Tried this tonight for my first Instant Pot meal. I was a bit apprehensive after reading some of the comments but it came out perfectly and had no burning or uncooked bits. Had loads of flavour. I added a chipotle for extra heat and served it with a dollop of Greek yogurt. Felt like a decadent treat.

Love that – sounds amazing!

Thank you so much for this recipe. I just purchased my first instant pot and had a hard time just figuring out how to open and close it. I figured I would make plain rice so I had an idea of what I was doing before jumping into a full blown recipe. I googled a basic rice recipe and it was a disaster. It stuck and burnt to the bottom of pot and what didn’t burn wasn’t cooked through. I was thinking I wasn’t going to be an instant pot kind of person but figured I would give this recipe a shot. I am thrilled that I did as it couldn’t have been easier or come out better. The chicken and rice were both cooked to perfection and the taste was OMG! I will definitely be trying your other recipes but I know that this one is a keeper for sure. It still seems like it’s too easy to taste this good! Thank you for helping me through my intro to Instant Pot cooking. After disastrous results, you made me into a success story!

Aw we are so happy this turned out so great for you! Thanks for sharing, Renee!

I honestly went out and bought an Instant Pot because sites and recipes like yours sold me.

THIS (20 Minute Burrito Bowls) was the first thing I tried.

After searching for a half hour, I finally found a site that told me that new models do not have “Manual Setting” anywhere, and I had to just use the [Pressure Cooker] button.

I followed the recipe exactly, using a scale and all measuring cups to measure everything out… and I was sure to not mix in the rice. Even with that.. the [bUrN] icon can up every two minutes.

After opening it and pouring the ingredients into another bowl and scrubbing the pot, I added more Chicken Broth (as suggested from other posts noting the [bUrN] icon), but OT STILL BURNED (this time with the rice touching the bottom some.. inevitably)

**added note: I did not mix in the rice on the first try. The chicken and the taco seasonings/broth burned at the bottom

Following this recipe cost me $30 in ingredients.

Hi Jeremy. That’s such a bummer to hear! As mentioned in the previous comments, this has been thoroughly tested in a 6qt Instant Pot Duo60 model without any burn indications so I cannot speak for why you would receive a burn message, especially if the recipe was followed. What model and size Instant Pot did you use?

Made this exactly as directed. My instant pot did not come to pressure and my rice was uncooked. Had to add more chicken broth and salsa and cooked for another 10 minutes but all of the rice was still not fully cooked and the bottom of the pan was burning. Really disappointed. Ratios for liquid need to be adjusted for this recipe.

Do you 1st cook the chicken, or does it go in the instapot raw?

There is no need to cook the chicken beforehand. The chicken is cooked in the Instant Pot.

I tried this recipe for my bible study group. I even double the recipe. Turned out lovely and delicious. I will be using it again. I love the video of it. It helped me to figure out what I needed to do to get it perfect. I have many of your recipes and I have never been disappointed. It makes me seem as if I am a good cook. Thanks

Hello I was wondering if I should go by the video or the recipe as written. The recipe states to add 1/4 cup of the broth with the chicken and 3/4 at the end with the rice. The video shows the full 1 cup of being added in the beginning with the chicken.

Either option should work just fine! 🙂

What adjustments should be made, if using an 8 qt. Instant Pot?

The timing should stay relatively the same. It would just take a little longer for it to come to pressure.

Hello, what model of instant pot is good for making this recipes ? Duo 7 in 1 6 qt. or 6 in 1 6 qt the old model ?
And most of your recipes are using which model of instant pot please ?

I use the Instant Pot DUO60 6 Qt.

Unfortunately, I got the burn message… that always disapoints me when I get that message.
