Instant Pot Mediterranean Greek Shredded Chicken and Brown Rice Bowl
Instant Pot Mediterranean Greek Shredded Chicken and Brown Rice Bowl is a quick and easy pressure cooker recipe perfect for meal prep and weeknight dinners! This bowl includes fresh red pepper hummus, tzatziki sauce, and kalamata olives. The chicken breasts are seasoned with turmeric, thyme, and paprika.
Season the chicken with the thyme, cumin, turmeric, paprika, red pepper, salt, and pepper to taste.
Add the chicken to the pot with the chicken broth.
Cook for 10 minutes on Manual > High-Pressure Cooking.
When the Instant Pot beeps to indicate it is finished, allow the steam to release naturally for 10 minutes instead of quick release.
Remove the chicken from the Instant Pot. Using a large knife and fork, shred the chicken.
Rinse the brown rice with water in a large bowl. Drain the water from the rice.
Add the rice to the Instant Pot with 2 1/2 cups of water.
Cook for 22 minutes on Manual > High-Pressure Cooking.
Allow the steam to release naturally for 10 minutes instead of quick release.
Remove the rice from the pot.
Create the rice bowls with equal amounts of rice, shredded chicken, olives, 1 tablespoon feta cheese, 1 tablespoon hummus, and 1 tablespoon tzatziki sauce.
I chose to cook the chicken first before the rice because once the rice is cooked, the Instant Pot will become sticky. This makes the process easier.You can make your own hummus using the following:1 15oz can chickpeas1 clove garlic1/4 cup olive oil1 teaspoon cumin1/2 teaspoon paprikasalt to tasteCombine the ingredients in a food processor or blender. Blend until creamy.
