Recipe by dmac085
READY IN: 1hr 30mins




  • Heat oil in pressure cooker, lid off, on saute or brown.
  • Add onions. Cook until softened.
  • Add all seasonings. Stir to blend and cook a minute or two.
  • If using raw chicken, add now and stir a bit.
  • Add rice and broth, then stir.
  • Put on lid, lock it in place. Pressure release valve in closed position.
  • Reset machine on high pressure for a cooktime of 5 minutes. Basmati is a more delicate rice than traditional long grain white so cook time is a bit less.
  • Shut off machine when time is up. Do a quick release and carefully remove the lid.
  • Fluff rice a bit the add mascarpone cheese in small dollop so they melt in quicker.
  • Add half and half, one 1/2 c to start them gently stir the mixture. Add only enough to get the creaminess you desire.
  • If using COOKED chicken, fold in now.
  • Fold in steamed broccoli.
  • Top with shredded cheese and put the lid back on. I set it to the Keep Warm setting and left it to heat for about 20 minutes.
  • Broccoli will get softer so if you like your broccoli with a bit more texture, you can steam it perfectly and just serve on the side.
