This Instant Pot Chicken and Rice is easy, creamy and comforting. Mushrooms, onions and celery give it a ton of flavor and the recipe is full of real ingredients - no canned soup here! If you don't like mushrooms you can use sliced carrots instead. This comes together quickly in the Instant Pot without a lot of prep.

Add the chicken bouillon to the hot water and let it sit to dissolve.
Place the chicken, rice, mushrooms, celery, and onion into the cooking bowl of the instant pot. Sprinkle the soup mix and black pepper over that.
Whisk the bouillon and water together until no large chunks remain and pour over the rest of the food.
Put the lid on the Instant Pot and set the bail on top to the sealing position.
Set the Instant Pot for 20 minutes at high pressure. When the cooking time is complete do a quick release and then open the lid.
Add the cream or sour cream and use two forks to shred the chicken into chunks. Stir until combined. Taste for salt / pepper and serve.
Unfortunately different versions of the Instant Pot cook differently. It has become a increasingly frustrating problem for recipe developers. These times work in my IP but may need adjusting in yours. I wish I could offer a better solution!
