Honestly, I don’t know how I would make it through the week without it now! Okay, that might be a bit dramatic, but you get my point. We love it and use it all the time, definitely consider the investment!

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:
- Water Chestnuts
- Bell Peppers
- Green Beans
