Instant Pot Creamy, Cheesy Parmesan Chicken & Rice

Parmesan chicken rice in an Instant Pot is creamy, delicious food with plenty of white chicken meat. It is one of my favorite instant pot meals. It is a delicious weeknight meal that can be easily made under 30 minutes. This recipe serves up to 6 people.

Delicious Cheesy Parmesan Rice and Chicken Meal

A combination of heavy cream, canned chicken soup, cream cheese, and parmesan cheese make this dish a crazily creamy cheesy, and delicious meal. Garlic and onion powder seasoning adds the extra kick to the flavor. You can use skinless chicken breasts instead of chicken thighs.

It is best when served along with Green salad, steamed broccoli, or green beans.

My kids love this recipe. The credit should be given to the cream cheese. It gets added at the end making it a stunningly yummy chicken and rice. The presence of garlic flavor is not too strong.

It is best to shred the parmesan cheese by yourself from a block of parmesan instead of purchasing pre-shredded cheese.

I have Instant Pot DUO60 6 Qt 7 which has a multi-functionality and can be used as a pressure cooker, slow cooker, rice cooker, saute, steamer, yogurt maker, and warmer.

The instant pot has always been a part of my kitchen and it has served some incredible meals which my family loves.
