Chicken Biryani in the Instant Pot®
Chicken biryani has roots in both Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine, and the seasonings will vary depending on region. While I won't claim this is authentic, it's quite tasty. Plan ahead, because the chicken marinates overnight before cooking in the Instant Pot®. I use Mexican crema (sour cream) because I like the fluidity, as opposed to traditional sour cream.
You will need 2 pounds of chicken thighs, which is about 6 to 8 thighs.
I have noticed herbs and seasonings lose their potency under pressure. For this reason, I reserve about a teaspoon of the seasoning mix from the marinade and add the reserved seasonings to the chicken and rice after it's cooked.
