    35 minutes seems very long in the instant pot, the rice is mushy…would the white rice setting be enough? Or 15 minutes? I love your website. Thank you for putting the recipes in English for us American Born Chinese

    This looks so good! What would you serve with it as a simple vegetable side dish?

    Hi, can we use the sauté function of the instant pot for direction step 2 so everything can be done using the instant pot? Or is there a reason for using a separate pan to brown the chicken? Thanks!
