Instant Pot Chicken And Rice Cream Of Mushroom

As a mushroom growing enthusiast and a fan of delicious, home-cooked meals, I’ve always enjoyed experimenting with mushroom-based recipes. One of my all-time favorites is the Instant Pot chicken and rice with cream of mushroom. This flavorful and creamy dish is a staple in my kitchen, and I’m excited to share the recipe with you.


  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste


First, I start by seasoning the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and a touch of garlic powder. Then, I sauté the chicken in the Instant Pot using the sauté function until it’s nicely browned on both sides. Once the chicken is browned, I remove it from the pot and set it aside.

Next, I add a bit of olive oil to the pot and sauté the onions, mushrooms, and garlic until they’re softened and fragrant. Then, I stir in the rice, making sure it’s well-coated with the oil and vegetables. This step helps the rice cook evenly and absorb all the delicious flavors.

After the rice is nicely coated, I pour in the chicken broth and give everything a good stir. Then, I carefully place the browned chicken breasts on top of the rice mixture. This allows the chicken to cook and infuse the rice with its savory juices.

Once the chicken is in place, I spoon the cream of mushroom soup over the chicken. I love using good-quality, creamy soup for this step, as it adds a rich and velvety texture to the dish.

With everything in the pot, I lock the lid in place and set the Instant Pot to cook on high pressure for 8 minutes. After the cooking time is up, I allow the pressure to release naturally for about 10 minutes before carefully venting any remaining pressure.

Finally, I remove the chicken from the pot and give the rice a good fluff with a fork. The rice turns out perfectly tender and infused with the savory flavors of the chicken and mushrooms.

Enjoying the Meal:

When I serve this dish, the aroma alone is enough to whet anyone’s appetite. The creamy mushroom sauce perfectly complements the tender chicken and flavorful rice. I love pairing it with a simple green salad or some steamed vegetables for a wholesome and satisfying meal.


Creating this Instant Pot chicken and rice with cream of mushroom dish is truly a delight for the senses. The rich, earthy flavors of the mushrooms combined with the tender chicken and fluffy rice make it a comforting and delicious meal that’s perfect for any occasion. Give this recipe a try and experience the magic of mushroom-infused goodness in every bite!
