Hi, I'm Parker 👋
Instead of buying me a coffee, check out the best coffee I've ever had (And it's instant!)

Start off by seasoning the chicken thighs with the chicken rub and set aside
Add rice to a bowl and rinse under cool water until water runs clear.
Turn pressure cooker to browning setting or saute if using an Instant Pot. Add oil then once it is hot or when it starts shimmering, add the seasoned chicken thighs and sear on both sides for three minutes each or until golden and crispy. Pressure king pro browning settings work for 3 minutes at a time, turn the settings back on and continue searing the chicken. Remove the chicken thighs from the pot and set aside
Add chopped onions and garlic to the pressure pot and saute for a minute or two until soft and translucent and flavour from the onion and garlic is released.
Add the tomato paste and stir for another minute. Then followed by the washed basmati rice then stir to combine.
Add the chicken broth to the pot, bay leaves and stir to combine, then return the chicken thighs to the pot. Place them over the rice. Put the pressure cooker lid on securely to lock, turn the valve to close or sealed position if using instant pot. Select the meat function or high pressure if using instant pot and cook for 5 minutes.
Once it is done (timer counts down) allow the pressure to naturally release or a quick release if you can’t wait (but be careful when doing a quick release) Take off the lid of the pressure cooker
Remove the chicken to a separate plate and fluff the rice with a fork before mixing to combine. If you want, you may shred the chicken thighs to serve with the rice or serve with the rice as it is.
