Instant Pot soy sauce chicken and rice is an easy dinner with just 5 ingredients and 5 minutes of prep. This recipe is a go-to family favorite.
This is a chicken and rice medley that astonishes me every time because it's so easy to make but so darn good.
The chicken is tender, the rice has an addictive sweet and salty flavor and the combination of the two makes for a really satisfying meal.
This dinner truly only takes 5 minutes of prep work, and you can throw it together while completely harried and having to step over a child who's having a meltdown on the kitchen floor (ask me how I know).
Soy Sauce Chicken and Rice
- Spread chicken thighs out on bottom of Instant Pot
- Sprinkle rice on top
- Add water, soy sauce, maple syrup and sesame oil
- Cook on high pressure for 8 minutes
To make a full meal, you only need a veggie on the side. Serve whatever you happen to have on hand. I like it with sauteed spinach or kale, green beans, peas, edamame, bok choy or broccoli. Also, green onions and sesame seeds for garnish, if you happen to have them.
