Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice

October 29, 2012 by 14 Comments

It has been a while since I’ve shared a Pressure Cooker Recipe.  The weather has begun to get real crisp at night which leaves me craving a filling, delicious home cook meal!  Easy and Fast always are a high priority, too!  Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice in the Pressure Cooker scores high in every area!  This flavorful one dish meal is totally tasty without much effort!

Along with a couple cubed boneless, skinless chicken breasts, here are the ingredients needed to prepare Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Rice in the pressure cooker.

And served in my vintage Pyrex casserole dish, it makes me feel like a regular June Cleaver (although I’m not sure her meals took twenty minutes to prepare).

Recipe type: Entree
Cuisine: Pressure Cooker
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed

  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1½ tablespoons all purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1½ cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups frozen broccoli florets, thawed
  1. Leave the lid off for now. Heat oil on high (or brown) until sizzling.
  2. Add the cubed chicken and onion and saute until chicken is lightly golden and onion is translucent.
  3. Add rice, chicken broth, salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then secure the lid and leave it locked for 5 minutes on high.
  4. Perform a quick release to release the cooker's pressure.
  5. Whisk together the flour and milk.
  6. With the cooker's lid off, set to high or brown and add in flour mixture. Simmer for 2 minutes.
  7. Stir in cheddar cheese and broccoli florets, and let simmer for 2 more minutes or until combined and broccoli is warm throughout.
  8. Enjoy!

    Can this recipe be made with brown rice instead of white?

    Hi! I’m so excited to try this recipe!! Do you happen to know what the “high” setting on a Power Cooker brand unit would be? It has “cook” and “Low temp cook”, so I’m assuming the cool option is also high. I’m new to this so any help is very appreciated!! Thank you!!
