Instant Pot Thai Basil Chicken Fried Rice brings a taste of the Far East right to your own kitchen. Hey there, friends, Jennifer from JENRON DESIGNS. A guest here today on Home Pressure Cooking sharing her favorites with us today Instant Pot: Thai Basil Chicken Fried Rice.

I have always enjoyed eating exotic cuisine, from around the world since I was a child. So it only stands to reason, that I would figure out how to make it quick and easy with my Instant Pot as weeknight, timesaving, dinner. Love Thai food like us? You can check out a few of my other Thai recipes like my Thai Coconut Shrimp, and Thai Green Curry Chicken.

This recipe infuses so many of my favorite flavors together, but the real star ingredient is Thai Basil., I grow my own fresh Thai Basil in my garden. You can now find Thai Basil at many local supermarkets, and specialty food stores like Trader Joe’s, Fresh Market, Whole Foods, and Wegman’s.

Here is how this simple recipe comes together. Select saute on your Instant Pot, for 10 minutes. Add in Olive Oil and seer your chicken until golden brown for 5-7 minutes. Then add peppers, spring onion, garlic, and Thai Basil for the remaining saute’ time.
