Instant Pot Chicken Fried Rice is a quick and easy one-pot meal. With simple ingredients such as rice, eggwhites, poultry, and peas, your family members will love this recipe that is sour! Fantastic for a weeknight dinner or dinner prep lunch!
Instant Pot Chicken Fried Rice is quickly turning into a go-to recipe for my lunch meal prep. It is incredibly easy to throw together, as well as my 5-year-old enjoys it as a sexy school lunch. I understand what you are thinking, this rice isn’t fried. I know, I understand. However, this recipe is a great option if you don’t have leftover rice!
Instant Pot Chicken Fried Rice is excellent because
- It requires only ten ingredients (also garnishes)
- it is made in 1 pot — although the egg is scrambled in the Immediate Pot!
- There is minimal prep work
- you only need about 30 minutes to make it
No need for takeout when you have this recipe!
Strategies for Success
- Rinse the rice. This will get rid of some of the starch and decrease the stickiness of the cooked dish.
- My taste is jasmine rice, but generic long-grain white should work, also. Be aware I find generic white rice may turn out more”mushy” than vanilla. I guess it’s an excellent thing. Brown rice requires a considerably longer cooking time, therefore won’t work with this particular recipe. If you use basmati, I’d add a moment of cook time since I find it remains more al dente than jasmine.
- Deglaze the add. Do not skip this step! When there’s any food stuck into the bottom of the insert, you may get a burn warning.
- Submerge the rice in the broth. Be sure all of the rice is pushed to the broth. This will allow it to cook evenly.
