I adore the instant pot. I think it is possibly one of the greatest inventions of all time. It makes cooking a breeze when you want little mess. It’s also been a game changer as we renovate our kitchen! I’ve had to get super creative, and this is just one way I’ve done this. I can saute, slow cook, or pressure cook. What’s not to love!?
This chicken fried rice is a great way to sneak in all your veggies. It’s also an awesome make-ahead lunch. I can’t believe schools are already back in session where we live, but it’s happened, so now it’s time to make meals that will last several days for lunch or dinner!
Some things to remember when making this recipe:
- Do NOT overcook your rice. Remove the lid to the instant pot as soon as the timer goes off. This will help ensure you don’t have sticky rice.
- I like to use frozen veggies to save some time, but you can use fresh if you want!
- For the broccoli, make sure the pieces aren’t too large. I try to keep them at about 1-2 inches in size. This will help them cook a little faster.
- Lastly, try to stir your rice as little as possible when mixing everything together. This, too, will help ensure the rice doesn’t become sticky.
Enjoy, and as always let me know what you think over on Instagram @thesugarandsaltco!
