Instant Pot Cajun Chicken And Rice


Ingredients:
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
etc


Instructions:
  1. Rinse the rice until the water runs clear. This helps remove starches that may otherwise scorch at the bottom of your Instant Pot.
  2. Cut the chicken breasts in half lengthwise to make then thinner. Season well from both sides with Cajun seasoning (about 2 teaspoons).
  3. 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.
