How To Make Our Instant Pot Chicken Fried Rice Recipe:
When you are ready to make this Instant Pot chicken recipe, first make sure to have cooked your chicken as this recipe does not use raw chicken.
Then, rice your white rice and then place it in the bottom of the Instant Pot and add in the water.
Now place the lid on top and turn the valve to the SEALING position and press the MANUAL or PRESSURE COOk button and set the timer to 4 minutes.
When the time is up, let the Instant Pot do a natural release of the pressure for 10 minutes and then turn the valve to the VENTING position afterwards to release any remaining pressure.
Take off the lid and fluff the rice up a bit and then remove the rice from the inner pot and store it in a bowl and cover it with tinfoil and press the CANCEL button.
Carefully remove the inner pot and give it a quick rinse to remove any remaining rice particles and then place it back in the Instant Pot.
Now add the toasted sesame oil to the Instant Pot and press the SAUTE button.
After the oil gets hot, add in the diced onion and let it saute for about 2 minutes.
Next you need to add in the frozen peas and carrots, shredded chicken, and the butter to the Instant Pot and let it cook for another 2 minutes, making sure to stir it and scraping the bottom of the pot.
When the 2 minutes is up, scrape the ingredients to one side of the pan and then pour in the beaten eggs.
Carefully stir the eggs while they cook and become like scrambled eggs.
Once they reach the scrambled egg consistency, fold the rest of the ingredients into the eggs and continue cooking everything together until it is all warm.
Now, turn the Instant Pot off by pressing the CANCEL button and then add the cooked rice, soy sauce, sesame seeds, salt and pepper to the pot and mix it all together.
Then serve it in a bowl with the sliced green onion and sesame seeds for garnish and dig in!
