  • 3 cups TOTAL of the following types of rice:
  • Brown rice OR multi-grain rice
  • 3 cups of water
  • 1 cup of diced ham, chicken, or pork
  • 1/4 cup of sliced scallions
  • 1 cup grated or matchstick carrots
  • 2 Tablespoons of Olive oil or butter
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce

Directions

  1. Add all ingredients to Instant Pot
  2. Set pot to Multi-Grain setting
  3. When cooking cycle is complete, fluff rice and serve

Options: You may also add 1 cup of frozen peas and/or mushrooms at the end of the cooking cycle–if you add them at the beginning they will turn out mushy

NOTE: This rice is going to be a much drier/less sticky rice than most of the recipes that are posted on the website or the ones in the recipe book. It is more like what we are used to here, in our Chinese restaurants.

Spicy Honey ChickenIngredients:

  • 8 boneless skinless chicken thighs, about 2 lbs
  • Glaze
  • 2 t granulated garlic
  • 2 t chili powder
  • 1/2 t onion powder
  • 1/2 t coriander
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 C Honey
  • 1 Tablespoon Cider or Balsamic Vinegar

 Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees or preheat gas grill or prepare briquets for grilling
  • Place chicken thighs in Instant Pot. Do not add liquids, the chicken will produce plenty of broth for the Spicy Honey Sauce.
  • Place lid on and press the POULTRY button.
  • When Instant Pot signals that the chicken is finished cooking, remove lid and place chicken on a baking sheet. Then place chicken in oven or on the grill for 15 minutes or until skin is crispy.
  • Remove chicken from oven or grill and set aside in a baking dish to keep warm.
  • While chicken is in the oven or on the grill, strain the chicken broth into a bowl, place broth back into the pot, push SAUTE button.
  • Add honey, Balsamic or Cider vinegar and seasonings to the chicken broth. Stirring occasionally, simmer the sauce  until it thickens and coats a spoon like syrup, may take from 10-15 minutes.
  • After sauce has thickened, turn pot off, adjust seasonings to your taste and pour the sauce over the chicken, coating each piece evenly.

We serve with multi-grain rice and a salad or vegetable.
