This recipe is fast and easy and you probably have everything you need in your pantry and freezer.
- 2 Boxes of Chedder Broccoli Rice a Roni
- 32 oz. of Chicken broth
- 16 oz. bag of frozen broccoli
- 2 to 3 pounds of chicken. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs this time. You could use frozen chicken also.
Set instant pot to the sauté setting. I used some olive oil and sautéed the chicken a few minutes each side.
I took the chicken out of instant pot. Added some butter and sautéed the rice a roni according to box directions until golden brown.
Next I added the 32 ounces of chicken broth and the flavoring packet that came with it. Mix.
Then I added the 16 ounces of the frozen broccoli. Mix. I added the sautéed chicken on top of the rice mixture.
Added the lid and set instant pot on the manual setting for 12 minutes. When done, a quick release. Stir.
You are done! Quick and easy. I did take the big chunks of chicken out and shredded them a little bit. Everyone really liked it. Fast and easy weeknight dinner.
