Tasty and easy! I made this in my Mini Duo. I thought I might need to do it in 2 batches since is a Mini Instant pot, but as written it is just at the 1/2 full level, so perfect. I used the Rice setting- I didn’t realize that was a Pressure Cook program. It sad “Auto” on the panel, so okay, it’s an Auto setting. Time of cooking on the panel was 14 minutes. It came out tasty! Rice done, potatoes done, liquid absorbed. I made sure to cut the potatoes 1/4 inch, I don’t like underdone potatoes. I had it with steamed broccoli. I would use part low sodium soy sauce next time, it’s salty to me. I didn’t add any extra salt. But a keeper. Love these Instant Pots.
In the instant pot recipe book
I’m confused about step 2 and 3 for the chicken and potato rice recipe.
Step 3 says to transfer all cooked chicken with liquid into the inner pot. I’m assuming this means the marinade
And then it says to add chicken stock , soy sauce ect.. But I thought that the chicken stock was already added when it says to transfer all cooked chicken with liquid into inner pot. It would help alot if the recipe explained clearly what to do with the marinade using the word marinade so it’s not confusing
I have updated the recipe. Sorry for the confusion.
This recipe is a disaster as precious commenters said. So confusing and she’s keeps on changing it. I clicked rice setting but it didn’t even pressurize. Just wasted $20 worth of chicken.
You don’t need that much chicken, use 400g and remember to use same size cup for measuring rice and liquid.
