What you need to make

1 lb of chicken breast
1 cup of carrots, peeled and diced
1 cup of stalks of celery chopped up
1 box wild rice (I used rice-a-roni)
1 cup of onion chopped
3 cups of chicken broth
2 bay leaves
2 tsp of butter
2 tsp of minced garlic 
3 cups light cream
1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
salt and pepper


How to Make

First, you will turn your pressure cooker onto simmer mode.
 After that, you will place your onions, garlic, carrots, and celery inside.
Cook till the onions are translucent.
 Now you will add in your butter with the seasoning package from the wild rice.  
Stir together well and slowly add in the flour.
 You will notice the mixture will become thick and like a roux.
 Once yours looks like the picture above.


 Now you will add in your light cream, chicken broth, rice, bay leaves and chicken into your pressure cooker.
Stir up very well, I normally stir for at least 1-2 minutes. 
Now it is time you will place your lid on your
pressure cooker and cook for 12 minutes.
Once the pressure cooker goes off you will turn off and let the pressure naturally release for 10 minutes.  
Once you can take the lid off you will stir up and let cool down so it gets thicker.
