Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine chicken breasts, salsa, tomato sauce, lime juice, olive oil, salt, garlic salt, and pepper in an electric pressure cooker.

  • Seal pressure cooker and bring to high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; cook chicken until no longer pink in the center, 8 minutes for thin frozen breasts and 12 minutes for thick frozen breasts. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Release pressure naturally according to manufacturer's instructions. Open pressure cooker; transfer chicken to a serving dish using tongs. Spoon 1/2 of the cooking liquid over the chicken; top with Mexican cheese.

  • Stir rice into the remaining cooking liquid in the pressure cooker. Add enough water to equal 2 cups of liquid. Seal pressure cooker and bring to high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; cook for 12 minutes. Let pressure release naturally. Serve rice with chicken.

Cook's Notes:

If you don't like it spicy, just use mild salsa or a can of diced tomatoes.

I only did 2 chicken breasts but you can add 2 more to the same amount of liquid. If using thawed chicken breasts, cook for less time.

If the rice is undercooked, pressure cook for additional time and add more water if needed.

This is absolutely amazing. I didn't have Jasmine rice, and couldn't find it at the store, so I used white rice. It was creamy, the chicken was PERFECTLY cooked (I used frozen chicken tenderloins and cooked them at 8 minutes as posted), the cheese was the perfect amount....there was nothing bad about this recipe. I served it with sour cream because sour cream makes EVERYTHING taste better! Read More

Not my favorite. The chicken and rice were cooked perfectly but there was way too much lime juice in it. All I could taste was lime. My husband liked it okay but I will not be making this again Read More

This was a big hit in our house. We used extra lime and that gave the rice almost a sour (like sweet and sour) flavour. It was amazing. Read More

I've made this a few times and it's always a hit. The lime is a nice balance with the tomato. When I remove the chicken after cooking I typically have my toaster oven warmed up and use a small serving bowl covered with aluminum foil to keep the chicken warm while the rice is cooking. Read More
