My Instant Pot Crack Chicken Recipe With Rice Broccoli and Carrots tastes great, it's made with real bacon and takes just 30 minutes to make! I am a sucker for a tasty casserole, and this one takes home the blue ribbon for sure.
Firstly, let me tell you. I used Homemade Ranch Dressing Mix, which took minutes to make, and adds a more home-cooked flavor to the dish. It totally makes this dish better. It's an upgrade from the crockpot recipe you're used to! No more waiting 6 to 8 hours for dinner.
Can You Put Raw Chicken In The Instant Pot?
Absolutely! In fact, this Instant Pot Crack Chicken Recipe With Rice And Broccoli was cooked from raw! Meanwhile, I bet you're wondering, Can you cook frozen chicken in the Instant Pot? That is also a yes! You can drop it right in and cook according to your recipe.
In this Instant Pot Crack Chicken Recipe With Rice And Broccoli, you get juicy chunks of chicken, bacon galore, and a rich and creamy, cheesy ranch base. Plus you can hide in some veggies for added flavor and a convenient way to get your kids to eat them.
What Do You Eat Crack Chicken With?
So, that depends on what crack chicken recipe you use. I like to serve my Delicious Creamy Crack Chicken Soup Recipe with these Air Fryer Biscuits. But this Shredded Crack Chicken you can eat it with crackers or put it on a bun and serve with Sweet Potato Fries.
Certianly, this Instant Pot Crack Chicken Recipe With Rice And Broccoli is a stand-alone that you can eat by itself!
When I say the Instant Pot has been a total life changer, I mean it. I work a full-time job, and I have three kids, cooking was a chore. After working all day long, the last thing I felt like doing was cooking dinner.
But, as a mom, we have to make sure our children get the nutritional meals. So when I came across the Instant Pot and began using it, it changed my life in so many ways.
Upgrade Your Slow Cooker Crack Chicken Recipe
To date, I have cooked so many things in my Instant Pot pressure cooker, most of which you can find right here on my blog. I even recently made silk tie-dyed Easter eggs. It was really fun to use the pressure cooker in a new way.
I was also amazed at how well the eggs came out; they were full of colorful prints, which all the little kids at the Easter egg hunt went crazy over them.
This is a really simple recipe, and it uses my Copycat Hidden Valley Ranch Seasoning instead of store-bought, which probably had MSG and tons of other stuff that's not good for you.
I find it also saved me some money because I could make a good amount of this and keep in my pantry.
We love ranch in our home, so making our own ranch seasoning is something I've done for a long time.
Why Do They Call It Crack Chicken?
People tend to call it this because it is so addictive. The ranch flavors coupled with the cheese and bacon make you want to go back for seconds and even thirds!
In conclusion, if you enjoy this Crack Chicken Recipe, then you want to also check these recipes out. In addition, these are also amazing!
Looks pretty good. Shared.
Are the broccoli and carrots in this or on the side? I don't see where they were added in the instructions. Thanks!
I've fixed it, sorry about that.
It is in step 4
How much carrots? They're not listed in the ingredients.
I have updated the post, sorry about that.
Hi there - when do you add the water? same time with the broth? Thanks!
There shouldn't have been any water. I've updated the recipe.
Thank you for this recipe! But I need your help. I'm not clear on when & where to use the different amounts of cheese: 1 cup cheddar + 16 ounces of cheddar. Is the 1 cup used in the pressure cooker; and the 16 ounces is used as the "crack chicken" topping if desired?
It should only be 1 cup, I am not sure how I put 2 different amounts in there.
Is the rice cooked or uncooked when you put it in?
I figured so, but just wanted to check. Thank you!
Super easy recipe and it's delicious! My only problem is that some of the rice wasn't completely cooked.
How many servings is this?
I would love any suggestions. This was the first thing I made in my pressure cooker. I followed the directions, and the rice didn't cook all the way and the chicken browned on the bottom. I'm thinking I might not have had enough liquid. Are there adjustments that you have to make for an 8 qt?
It sounds like you may have needs more liquid.
Just curious, but were the vegetable soggy after all this time??
They weren't, we loved it.
# of servings?????
Not exactly sure, it made enough for leftovers.
After making this according to directions, my still frozen chicken wasn’t quite done. I put the lid back on cooked it a little longer. I probably should’ve added a little more liquid, because some of the rice stuck to the bottom and the vegetables (I used frozen broccoli) disintegrated into nutrients. Lol. It was still delicious, and my picky husband loved it! I’ll be making it again!
I'm glad it ended up working out for you ?
Great meal, thanks! I added 1 cup of uncooked rice, instead of 2 & cooked my frozen chicken breasts in IP to 15 minutes & it turned out well. Appreciate the recipe!
I should have looked at your comment. I followed this recipe exactly and my IP couldn't come up to pressure because there wasn't enough liquid. I believe the rice kept absorbing it. If I try this again I will only use 1 cup of rice and a little more liquid.
SO SO SO GOOD! I made this tonite, following the directions exactly- except I forgot to cook the bacon ? So we didn't have that added
Mine turned out super sticky rice kind of dry?? I feel like we should have maybe used more broth? Anyone else's turn out a little dry?
I made this last night and it was delicious!!!! I followed the directions exactly EXCEPT I added an extra half cup of chicken broth since I saw others say theirs was dry. Mine was perfect. Chicken was cooked just right. Nothing burned to the bottom. so easy too! I used natural release which lets the contents cook a little longer and preserve some of the moisture. Took about an hour from gathering the ingredients to finish.
This made 8 servings. Looking forward to enjoying the leftovers!
Has anyone made this with brown rice? Would it ruin the chicken to cook it for 22 minutes?
I made this last night and used brown rice. I think 22 minutes would be too long. I added 1/2 cup extra chicken broth and the rice was great. Chicken wasn't quite done after 12 minutes so I might do it for 14-15 next time.
Thanks for the recipe! I tried this last night (my first dinner in the IP). It was good! I added 1/2 cup extra chicken broth per some of the reviews above and the rice turned out great (I used brown rice). My frozen chicken breasts weren't quite done after the 12 minutes (had to finish them in the oven) so I will cook for a little longer next time, but it was great otherwise!
Did you cook this on low or high pressure?
