Chicken and Rice cooking instructions for the power pressure cooker
- Pour olive oil into the pot. Season and brown chicken quarters in Power Pressure Cooker XL. Press the Chicken/Meat Button. (brown each chicken quarter one at a time) Tip: For crispier chicken, place in conventional oven on Broil, and Broil for 10 minutes or until desired browning has taken place.
- Once the chicken has browned remove from the pressure cooker and set aside.
- Add 2 cups of water, celery, garlic, carrots, and uncooked rice (according to rice package for 2 servings) and simmer for 5 minutes. Pressure cooker must remain at the Chicken/Meat setting while sauteing.

Cooking with the electric power pressure cooker
Cooking is easy with the electric power pressure cooker. This is a must-have appliance for every kitchen. Cooks nutritious meals in half the time of conventional cooking and uses less energy.
I remember my Mother cooking with the stove top pressure cooker and the whistling noise it made while it rocked on top of the stove was a scary sight, and if left unattended could spell disaster in the kitchen.
With this pressure cooker, you have 6 safety features!
- Lid safety device
- Pressure & Temperature Sensors
- Back-up Safety Release Valve
- Clog Resistant Feature
- Spring loaded pressure release
- Temperature cut off device
No more fear of the pressure cooker on the stove, you can cook in half the time and fewer dishes to wash-- clean up is easy, and the inner pot is dishwasher safe.
You can cook from frozen -- just allow an extra 10 minutes of cook time.
You can even use this pressure cooker as a slow cooker or a canner. Greatest product I ever purchased.
Below is one of my favorite chicken and rice recipes.
