This recipe received "thumbs up" from us! I used 2 cups of instant rice, large can of mushroom soup, about 2Tbsp of Worstershire sauce, and 1/2 cup of inexpensive Merlot, sm. bag frozen vege's.. along with the other ingredients listed minus the cheese sauce/soup. Cooked for 20min on high..then turned to a lower heat for the last 15min. Oh my gosh...yummy yummy yum yum. The chicken fell apart and instant rice did not scorch! Perfecto mundo.
My husband calls this a keeper. I cut the chicken into pieces and sauteed them with onion, salt, pepper and garlic powder. I used cream of chicken and cream of celery soups, and added a bag of frozen veggies (didn't have broccoli, which I will try next), salt, pepper and garlic powder. I will use a little more water next time, but I pressured that for 20 minutes and the rice was perfect. My pan was a little scorched, but will spray next time. No scorch flavor, thank heavens!
This is a very easy and fast recipe and I highly recommend it. My only suggestion would be to mix the rice and the soups together before putting into the cooker. I cooked mine at 15 lbs of pressure for 30 minutes because I like the meat to be extra tender. Worked out great.
The other reviews mention this scorching, I should have listened. I'm chalking this recipe up to a failure.
This scorched on the bottom of my pressure cooker too, so we ate around it. I even tried to do this at the lower pressure setting. I would suggest bring it to boil with cover off so you can see it boil. Then put cover on and set burner to low and cook for 35 min. Don't wait for it to come up to pressure.
Ok really nice recipe but it will burn your pressure cooker up, never came up to pressure so I took everything and put in a dish and put it in the oven :-(
I would give this zero stars if it would let me. I have a Cook's Essentials pressure cooker and this recipe had me convinced that I broke it. I did everything just as the recipe called for, but the cooker never got up to pressure. I tried three times. It got hot enough to scorch the rice on the bottom and make the chicken rubbery, but no pressure ever built.
I don't know what happened. I was looking forward to this. Maybe it's too much liquid/thickness, or maybe I should have used instant rice instead of plain old bagged rice. Anyone know what the trouble could be?
I'll admit I'm a newbie but my first two recipes I tried in the brand-new pressure cooker came out perfect. For some reason, with this recipe, the pressure cooker failed to build pressure and ended up burning its contents instead as I waited for its popup indicator to pop (which it never did). Could it be that even with 1.5 cups water the rice/soup mixture is too thick for pressure to build? My fault for waiting as long as I did to pull the cooker off the burner, but I really would like to know what went awry. I have an electric stove and the burner was set to 7 (med high). Now I know to pull the cooker off and abort the mission if it ever fails to reach pressure in a reasonable time. As it turned out, we still ate what wasn't burned as the rice and chicken did cook completely. But that burnt smell and taste permeated the meal enough for me to call this attempt--if not the recipe--a failure.
Scorched and almost ruined my pressure cooker.
I thought this had a very good flavor, but wonder if it wouldn't have been better cooked in the oven. I mixed my rice and soups together as suggested but the bottom scorched and the top layer of rice wasn't done. The chicken and the middle part was great! I will try this again, and maybe cook at a lower pressure for a longer length of time. Also, I will spray the bottom of my cooker with non-stick cooking spray. I would suggest letting the cooker cool down naturally... maybe that would help the rice absorb some liquid. Will try again and rate it then... but as I said, it had a great flavor and was very easy to put together. Thanks for submitting!
