Electric Pressure Cooker Cheesy Chicken and Rice

Woke up this morning to fog.  We knew beans wouldn't be cut very soon today. Then Dave sent me this picture of the beautiful sunrise this morning.

We have been using the electric pressure cooker very often, it has a permanent spot on our counter. Harvest has been running smoothly, and we sometimes use Sunday evenings to make a few extra meals to get us and the kids through a  few extra days.

I have made the Crock Pot version of the Chicken and Rice since we have been married.  I wanted to see how well this recipe works with the electric pressure cooker.

I used over 2 pounds of chicken breasts in this recipe.  I cut them in half because they were frozen. Added salt and pepper.  

If you would look in my cabinet, you will find lots of cream of chicken and cheddar cheese in inventory.  I always have this recipe in mind when I am thinking about the week's menu.  Preparing this meal in the electric pressure cooker gives me the flexibility to make it even on a busy evening.

This is what the meat and soup mixture looks like after it is pressure cooked after 30 minutes.  

The only thing I would do different, is put the cream of chicken and the cheddar cheese soup on the bottom and the chicken on top of the soup mixture. It protects the meat from searing at the bottom of the pan.    

Be careful of the hot pot, but you can use two forks and shred the chicken in the pot, or take it out and shred it and add it back to the pot.   It also is delicious served over rice! Try it, you will love it!

Esther Pounds: In the narrative you said put the cream cheese and soup in first. In list of ingredients I did not see any cream cheese mentioned.

It should say Cheddar Cheese Soup. I will make a correction and thank you for stopping by my blog!
