Basic Chicken
Ingredients
* 2 Tablespoons of butter
* 1 cup of onion
* 1-2 tsp diced garlic
* 3 cups chicken broth
* 3 cups of rice (not instant)
* Salt and Pepper
* 2-3 cups of bite sized chicken
* Optional add-ins (see note below)

Instructions
* Set your pressure cooker to sauté/sear and add your butter. Once the butter is melted, add your onions and sauté until soft and translucent.
* Add in your garlic and sauté for 30 seconds
* Add your chicken broth and rice (make sure you have your rice ratios correct. When in doubt use 1:1.5 rice/water ratio, you can always evaporate the extra moisture, but it’s harder to add it back in). Mix well.
* Add in any add-ins at this point. Mix well.
* Salt and pepper your chicken and lay your cut chicken pieces on the top of your mixture in the pot. Do not stir.
* Seal and set for 8 minutes on high pressure.
* When the time is over, allow the pot to natural pressure release for 5-10 minutes before opening.

Optional Add-ins
