    • Ingredients
    • 2 Tbsp olive oil
    • 2 cups (1 lb; 500 g) chicken breast, cubed
    • salt , pepper, thyme, oregano, a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
    • 1 onion , chopped
    • 2 garlic cloves , choped
    • 1 cup peas , fresh or frozen (or any other vegetables you like)
    • 1/2 cup red bell peppers , cut into stripes
    • 1 1/2 cup long-grain rice (I used parboiled)
    • 1/8 tsp safron , steeped in 3 Tbsp warm water
    • 2 cups chicken broth
    • Instructions
    • Season chicken breast cubes with salt, pepper, dry thyme, dry oregano and some cayenne pepper (if using).
    • Press "Sauté" button on your Instant Pot. Pour olive oil into the pot. When it heats up, add seasoned chicken and stir until it changes color.
    • Add onion and garlic and continue cooking until wilted, stirring from time to time.
    • Add all other ingredients. Cover and lock the lid. Press the “Keep Warm/Cancel” button on the Instant Pot to stop sauteing process. Press the "Multigrain" button to begin the pressure cooking, then "Adjust" button to set it to 10 minutes.
    • When cooking is finished, press the “Keep Warm/Cancel” button to stop the pot from switching to the “Keep Warm” mode. Allow the pressure to release naturally (it will take about 15 minutes).
    • Open the lid and fluff the rice with a fork. Serve garnished with chopped cilantro or parsley and stuffed olives (optional).
