Rub the taco seasoning over the surfaces of the chicken breasts. Set Instant Pot to saute. Heat the olive oil and add the chicken to the pot. Cook for 3 minutes/side.
Add chicken broth, corn, black beans, salsa (or diced tomatoes) and green chiles to the pot. Deglaze the pot (scrape the bottom with a spoon) and mix well.
Pour 1 cup of rice into the pot, ensuring it is fully immersed in liquid. Do not stir the mixture after this point.
Set the timer to 10 minutes on high pressure. Remove cover and transfer the chicken breasts to a cutting board. Using two forks, shred the chicken and add it back to the pot. Mix well and sprinkle the cheese over the top.
Let it sit for 5 minutes, then scoop into bowls and serve! Top with cilantro and green onions!
This is one of those recipes that is great for meal prep!
For an extra cheesy final product, add 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese along with the Mozzarella at the end!
For an extra spicy bowl, add spicy salsa, chopped jalapeño peppers and/or chili powder.
It is super important not to stir the mixture once you’ve added the rice to the pot. Make sure the rice is fully immersed in liquid, but avoid mixing it up. This will keep the rice from falling to the bottom of the pot and scorching.
