{VIDEO} Slow Cooker/Instant Pot Chicken & Rice

  • Author: Fit SlowCooker Queen
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 3 hours
  • Total Time: 3 hours 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


  • 2 lbs chicken
  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice, rinsed
  • 1.5 to 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth (see note below)
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp oil  (for pressure cooker)


Slow Cooker

  1. Add rice, broth, onion, garlic, oregano, parsley, salt, and pepper to the slow cooker. Stir to mix well.
  2. Add the chicken on top.
  3. Cook HIGH 2-3 hours or LOW 4-6.

Electric Pressure Cooker (Instant Pot)

  1. Turn the Instant Pot to saute. Once hot, add the oil and if  you’re using skin on chicken, add the chicken skin-side down and cook until the skin is lightly browned. Approximately 3-5 minutes. If you’re using boneless, skinless chicken, go straight to the next step.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook a few minutes until soft. Add the broth, and deglaze the bottom of the pressure cooker by scraping all the bits off with a wooden spoon.
  3. Add the oregano, parsley, salt, pepper and brown rice. Stir to mix well.
  4. Add the chicken on top. Do not mix.
  5. Close lid and seal valve. Set high pressure and cook 22 minutes. Quick release pressure.

Optional step: If you’re using skin-on chicken and you want crisp skin, after it’s done cooking remove the chicken from the slow cooker and BROIL it in the oven. Approx 5-10 min or until crisp to your liking.
