Instant Pot Cajun Chicken And Rice

Instant Pot Cajun Chicken And Rice

1 lb. chicken breast
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning divided
1 tablespoon oil olive or avocado
1 small onion diced
3 garlic cloves minced
1.5 cups white rice (I have used regular white, Jasmine and parboiled rice with success) well rinsed
1 bell pepper, diced (I've also used 1-2 cups of frozen peas, carrots and corn instead)
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1.75 cups chicken or vegetable broth

  • Rinse the rice until the water runs clear. This helps remove starches that may otherwise scorch at the bottom of your Instant Pot.
  • Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make then thinner. Season well from both sides with Cajun seasoning (about 2 teaspoons).
  • Optional step: Soften first the onion and then garlic with the oil using the sauté function. Deglaze with a couple tablespoons of water and scrape up any brown bits. There should be NOTHING left stuck to the bottom, otherwise the Instant Pot will not be able to pressurize properly.
