Southwest Chicken and Rice Bowls

Recipe by: Regina Zona

“We were looking for an easy recipe to do in the pressure cooker and this was delicious. This recipe is not specifically for the pressure cooker. In order to do it the pressure cooker, brown the chicken in the cooker with the olive oil first, then add all the ingredients except the cilantro, and cook on the brown rice setting.”
