  • 2 cups white rice shorter grain
  • 2 cups chicken stock
  • 1 lb chicken breast cooked and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil divided
  • ½ white onion diced
  • 1 12 oz bag frozen peas and carrots
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
  • 3 green onion stalks diced


  • Wash and cut veggies. Dice onion and green onion and set aside.
  • Cook chicken, or use rotisserie chicken as a shortcut! Cut into small strips and set aside.
  • Rinse rice in a colander, and pour off the water.
  • Add your rinsed rice to the Instant Pot along with 2 cups of chicken stock.
  • Place the lid on your pressure cooker and make sure the valve is set to sealing. Cook high pressure for 3 minutes followed my 10 minutes natural release. Then push off any remaining pressure.
  • Fluff your rice, remove from Instant Pot and set aside. Make sure to clean your pressure cooker to remove any rice mixture.
  • Now you will add in sesame oil to clean Instant Pot, and turn the saute feature on. Add in your diced onions and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Add in your peas and carrots and cook for a minute, to help thaw them out.
  • Add in your butter and brown sugar and mix until the mixture is cooked.
  • Push your vegetables to one side of the Instant Pot, and add in your 2 scrambled eggs to the empty side. Cook till the scrambled eggs are cooked.
  • Now add in your cooked chicken, rice vinegar, and soy sauce. Saute for 2 minutes.
  • Turn off your saute feature and top your Instant Pot fried rice with green onions and dish up your Hibachi fried rice!


  • Use a short grain white rice for this recipe. You can use long grain it will just change the texture.
  • You can have a shortcut and use pre-cooked chicken.
  • Leave out the brown sugar or replace with a sugar substitute if you want a sugar free version.
  • Leave the chicken out and replace with vegetable stock for a vegetarian fried rice.
  • This Instant Pot Hibachi fried rice is great leftover so meal prep some lunches or dinner for the week.
