  • 6 quart or 8 quart Instant Pot (electric pressure cooker)


  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped leeks
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 1 medium carrot diced
  • 1 stalk celery chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups pre-cooked chicken chopped
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce
  • 2 cups long grain white rice (ex: Basmati or Jasmine)
  • 4 cups chicken stock (or use vegetable stock)


  • Set the Instant Pot to saute mode and add the sesame oil and coconut oil.
  • Add the green onions, diced onion, diced carrot, chopped celery, garlic and pepper, and saute until the veggies begin to soften (about 5 minutes).
  • Add the chopped chicken and soy sauce, and stir.
  • Add a splash of stock and scrape the bottom of the Instant Pot to deglaze the pot. Do not skip this step as you may get the "Burn" notice while pressure cooking.
  • Add the rice and stir to combine with the chicken and veggies.
  • Add the stock and cover the Instant Pot, sealing the lid and setting the valve to sealing.
  • Set the Instant Pot to cook on High Pressure for 3 minutes.
  • Once the 3 minutes of cooking time have passed, allow the Instant Pot to release pressure naturally for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes have passed, turn the valve to venting to release any remaining pressure and remove the lid.
  • Fluff the rice with a fork and add a little extra soy sauce (if desired, to taste).
  • Serve with some chopped green onions.
