Today I made a traditional casserole but using the instant pot. This made this one pot dish ready in minutes. This dish was part of my meal and the casserole does have a protein (chicken), starch (rice) and vegetables (broccoli). I added a muffin and orange to add more nutrients and make the meal more fun with different textures and tastes.
1 tablespoon olive oil
2chicken thighs and legs, cooked and cubed ( you can cook raw cubed chicken with the onions until lightly golden).
1 onion, finely diced
1 1/3 cups white rice
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric root- optional for color and nutrition
1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups frozen broccoli, thawed
Without the lid on set the instant pot to sauté. Add the onion and sauté until translucent. Add the chicken , rice , broth, and seasoning. Put on the lid on and put manual, set 5 minutes on high pressure.
When do a quick release. Whisk together the flour and milk. With the lid off set to meat/stew. Cook for 2 minutes Stir in the cheese and broccoli and cook for 2 more minutes.
