  • 4 tablespoons vegetable oil divided
  • 2 eggs large
  • 1 tablespoon garlic minced
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 pound chicken breast uncooked and diced in 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 1/2 cups white rice uncooked
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas and carrots thawed
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/4 tablespoon of white pepper
  • salt to taste
  • sliced green onion optional for garnish


  • Turn your instant pot onto sauté mode. Once your instant pot becomes hot, add 2 tablespoons to your pot. Add your two eggs, whisk well until scrambled. One scrambled remove and set aside.
  • Add 2 more tablespoons of oil and add in your minced garlic. Just stir a little bit to release the flavor.
  • Press cancel on your instant pot. Add in your broth. Taking a wooden spoon or strong spatula, scrape the bottom of your instant pot to remove any remaining residue from the egg and garlic. This will prevent the burn notice from turning on your instant pot.
  • Add in your chicken and rice. Mix well.
  • Close the lid on your instant pot and close the ceiling valve by pushing the valve away from you. Set your instant pot to high-pressure for four minutes.
  • Once your instant pot is finished cooking, allow it to naturally release for another 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, manually released by bringing the valve toward you to release the pressure.
  • Add to your rice the soy sauce, Seasonings, egg, and frozen peas and carrots. Mixed together. Put the lid back on the instant pot and allow the heat from the pot to warm your frozen vegetables and eggs. Allow them to warm for about five minutes.
  • Once the vegetables have completely warmed, serve your fried rice with sesame seeds, and green onions! Enjoy
