Exactly how to make up this easy Instant Pot teriyaki chicken dinner:

You are going to start making this by getting out your Instant Pot and placing the chicken breasts into the bottom of the inner pot. 

Then, add in the chopped carrots and rice on top of the chicken breasts. You will want to steam your broccoli separately, because it disintegrates and breaks up easily, so you won’t be able to even see the broccoli if you pressure cook it for that long. 

Next, pour the chicken broth over top of the veggies and chicken breasts. Be sure that all the rice is covered with the broth as this will allow the rice to cook properly. 

 

Then, place the lid on top and turn so it locks. Also, make sure that the knob is turned to the “SEALING” position. 

 

Now, press the “MEAT” or “STEW” button and set the timer for 20 minutes. 

 

After the timer goes off you will need to do a quick release. You can do this by turning the valve on top of the lid to the “VENTING” position. 

Once all of the pressure has escaped, take the lid off and remove the chicken breast from the pot and shred the chicken with either two forks or to speed things up you can always use a hand or stand mixer! 

 

Then, just add the shredded chicken back to the pot and mix it all together. Add your other vegetables if desired as well. 

Now, serve it hot with the green onions and sesame seeds and pour in your desired about of teriyaki sauce and you have your meal ready to go!

What vegetables go good in a stir fry?

Any vegetable can go into a stir fry. For this recipe, you could even do a steamable bag that you buy in the frozen section at the store, then microwave it and add to the Teriyaki Bowls after they have cooked. Or you could also add:

  • Zucchini
  • Asparagus
  • Water Chestnuts
  • Bell Peppers
  • Onions
  • Green Beans

    Your recipe says one thing and the video instructs it differently. I made this and it did not turn out. I did the meat setting for 20 minutes used white rice as suggested in the comments and followed the ingredients and directions. The carrots and broccoli were mushy and the broccoli was overcooked bad. The chicken was fine but all the rest was a sticky overcooked mess. The recipe states to steam the broccoli separately, but your video shows you adding the carrots and broccoli all at the same time to the instant pot which is what I did, I followed the video as I was making it. You need to specify that the video does instruct as the recipe states. Especially for people like me that are new to the Instant Pot and follow along with the video.
    • Kristen has done it both ways and had no problems. The broccoli needs to be cut into bigger chunks if you do cook it in the Instant Pot. But we like to cook it separately on the side. We often do our carrots that way too. It's really a personal preference, and depending on how much time you have.

    I hate auto correct. I wanted to know if this recipe can be, frozen then placed in the instapot when I get home? I was thinking I could add everything to the bag except the rice, just add that to the pot when ready to cook.

    My instant pot won't pressurize with this recipe, can you help me troubleshoot! I'm using 4 frozen chicken breasts and no carrots but everything else is the same. I have it set to sealing and manual for 25 minutes. Nothing is clogged and everything is clean. Do I need a new instant pot?
    • Hopefully this site will help you find an answer on why your instant pot didn't pressurize. https://www.paintthekitchenred.com/16-reasons-why-instant-pot-not-sealing/#:~:text=The%20pressure%20release%20handle%20needs,Instant%20Pot%20won't%20pressurize.
