"If you’re looking for an easy, delicious, and healthy chicken and rice recipe, this Instant Pot Chicken Breasts and Rice is a great option. With just a few ingredients, it’s a simple dish to make that can be on the table in under 30 minutes. I love using the pressure cooker to make rice because it cooks evenly and quickly by trapping the steam inside. This method also works great for chicken, as it keeps it moist and tender while cooking. If you love simple family-friendly meals then this dish is going to become a new favorite! "
