  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 curry powder, cardamom, salt, pepper, paprika, ginger, 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 23 minutes. Quick release pressure.
