One of those recipes you need in your back pocket for a busy day. Throw everything into the pot and forget about it! Easy, flavorful, tender chicken with rice. 


  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp Better than Bouillon Chicken Base
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 46 pieces of bone-in chicken (drums, thighs) or boneless thighs
  • 2 Tbsp dried onions
  • 1 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 3/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/2 cup sour cream or 4 ounces cream cheese


  1. Pour water into Instant Pot. Stir in the chicken base (it doesn’t have to be dissolved). Sprinkle in the rice. Lay the chicken into Instant Pot. Sprinkle the onions, poultry seasoning and garlic salt on top of the chicken.
  2. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 22 minutes. When time is up let the pot sit for at least 10 minutes and then move valve to venting. Remove the lid.
  3. Move chicken to a plate. Stir sour cream or cream cheese in with the rice. Serve rice and chicken and enjoy!
