First Time Cooking Chicken and Rice

I finally got around to trying the chicken and rice Instant Pot recipe that my friend gave me a few weeks ago. I told him that I had gotten a new pot and he mentioned all of the things that he’s made with it. I asked him what was a really good recipe to make, and that’s when he mentioned the chicken and rice. He said that it was like having heaven being made into a dish and then eating it. I had only eaten chicken and rice in restaurants and I liked it well enough, so this was going to be a treat for me.

I had to take a trip to the store first to get the ingredients I needed for the recipe. I was nearly out of every kind of spice, so I went to the spice section first and loaded up. Then I went to the meat section to get a healthy looking chicken with a good amount of meat on it. I got some vegetables to throw into the pot. I almost went through the check out line when I realized that I had forgotten to get a big bag of rice. I like the big bag better than the boxed rice because it’s more economical.

Once I got home and unpacked everything, I washed the chicken and seasoned it. I put the ingredients into the pot with the rice and let it cook while I watched a movie online. There was a movie that I had been wanting to check out, but just couldn’t find the time to sit down and look at it. The movie was as great as I thought it would be, and when it was done, the chicken was ready. I made a plate and ate some while watching another movie.
