Instant Pot Chicken and Rice Stracciatella


When cold and flu season are upon us, this recipe always brings comfort when you are feeling a bit under the weather, or just want something that warms your tummy, but is not too heavy. Traditional stracciatella does not have chicken or rice in it, but it adds a bit of substance when you want something light, but filling.

  • 3 tablespoons finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
