  • 6 or 8 quart Pressure Cooker


  • 1 cup Long Grain Rice or Jasmine Rice
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil, divided
  • 1 lg Egg
  • ¼ lb Chicken, cut into small cubes
  • 1 med Onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves Garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup Chopped Carrots
  • ¼ cup Frozen Peas
  • ½ cup Broccoli Florets
  • 1 cup Mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 ¼ cup Chicken Stock
  • 2 Tablespoons Dark Soy Sauce
  • 1 Tablespoon Rice Vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Red Chili Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper


  • Rinse the rice 3-4 times or until the water runs clear. Set aside.
  • Turn on the pot's Sauté function. When hot, add 2 teaspoons of the oil.
  • Add the egg and scramble it. Take it out and set it aside.
  • Next add the remaining oil and add in the chicken pieces, sauté it for a few minutes until the chicken changes colour from pink to white on the outside (no need to fully cook it at this stage).
  • Take chicken out and set it aside.
  • Add in the chopped onion and garlic and sauté it for a minute or two until the onion turns light brown.
  • Add a little chicken stock and deglaze the pot by stirring and scraping the bottom of the pot so no food is stuck to the bottom.
  • Add carrots, mushrooms followed by rice, chicken and broccoli florets. Stir (Note: adding broccoli at this stage will yield soft texture. You can add steamed broccoli after pressure cooking if you want a firmer result).
  • Add the chicken stock.
  • Cancel the sauté setting. Select the pressure cook button on High pressure, and set time for 6 minutes (Make sure the valve is in SEALING position).
  • Once the pressure cooking cycle is over, quick-release pressure by manually moving the valve from SEALING to VENTING position.
  • Open the lid carefully and select the cancel button.
  • Select the sauté setting and add in salt, pepper, soy sauce, rice vinegar, red chilli sauce, peas and scrambled egg, sauté everything in the rice for a few seconds to warm it up and combine the flavors.
  • Cancel the sauté setting.
  • Serve hot and enjoy.


You can store the fried rice in an airtight container for 5 days in the refrigerator or around 4 months in the freezer.
